Christian Education for Children

Christian Education for Children

Jesus said to them, “Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me and whoever welcomes  me welcomes the one who sent me; for the least among all of you is the greatest.” (Luke 9:48)

Sunday School

Second has adopted a “one-room schoolhouse” model for our children’s Sunday School. The curriculum is designed by the volunteers with support from the Pastor and uses some Sparkhouse materials.

Prior to the pandemic, our Sunday School students were divided by age groups (ages 3-4, K-1st, 2nd/3rd, and 4th/5th). Children enjoyed Bible stories and other activities to help them learn scripture and to help deepen their faith.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is an important part of our summer program for children. Our VBS is a joint project of several of our neighboring churches along Charles Street, referred to as the “Churches of Charles”.

Confirmation

Second Church offers confirmation class to all youth who are in the eighth grade or higher. One of the goals in confirmation is to answer the question, “What does it mean to join the church?” Attending worship, classes, retreats, meetings, and mission projects together are all part of the confirmation path. Confirmation classes are generally held every other year, depending on interest.

Youth Ministry

For several years now, our youth activities have been done in conjunction with other churches on Charles Street. Visit our homepage to sign up for church newsletters for information about upcoming activities.
