Registration for Sunday School is ongoing and new children are always welcome.
Sunday School staff and volunteers are available on Sunday mornings to assist new children and their families. We encourage new families with small children to arrive early and take a brief tour of our Sunday School with their child and meet our Teddy Bear Nursery caretakers from Mother's Helpers.
If you would like to receive our Sunday School News(letter), please e-mail Sarah Hefter, our CE director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Sunday School seeks to introduce children at The Dover Church to what it means to me a diciple of Jesus Christ: prayers, Bible stories, service to the world, God’s presence in their lives, and the teachings of Jesus.
We also want our children to know church as a safe and welcoming place, where they are an important part of the church’s life and where adults care about them.
Church School is open to all children, whether parents are church members or not.
|The Church School Program runs from early September through the end of May, and meets during church services, which run from 10 AM - 11 AM. The program is offered to children in Pre-K
through 7th grade, with confirmation offered to 8th graders throughout the church calendar year. Additionally, child care is provided for infants and toddlers who have not yet entered
Children attend the first part of regular Sunday worship, at which time they are offered a "Children's Sermon" by the ministers or a church member. Children proceed from the church sanctuary to their classrooms in Kraft Hall where they enjoy their biblical lessons.
In addition to their biblical lessons, it is the church’s intention that its children learn that they can make a difference in the lives of others by being involved with organizations such as A Place to Turn or Cradles to Crayons.
We believe that faith is best learned at home, and we try to provide support and resources for every family with a child enrolled in the program.
We’re proud of our children, grateful for their presence among us, and hopeful that they will come to know of the presence of God’s love in their lives.The Christian Education Program for our children is overseen by the Christian Education Committee. The classroom teaching and activities are in the hands of creative and committed adults.
