Children

At the First Congregational Church of Woodstock, Sunday School classes for children and youth begin on the second Sunday in September and end on the second Sunday in June. 

Classes are held from 10:00-11:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

All children and youth begin worship in the sanctuary for approximately 10 to 15 minutes and then proceed to classrooms downstairs after a brief children’s time with Pastor Jocelyn or Melissa. Intergenerational worship services are held at various times throughout the year.

Nursery

Our spacious, colorful and inviting infant/toddler/preschool room is located on the downstairs level of the church. The room is fully equipped for all infant/toddler and preschool needs, including a crib, changing table and bathroom. Adult church volunteers supervise each Sunday. A speaker is located in the nursery so you are able to hear the worship service if you wish to stay with your child.

Kindergarten through Eighth Grade

On Sunday mornings our children explore the same bible lesson that adults are hearing in worship. This exciting, dynamic approach to teaching the stories of the Old and New Testaments allows parents to engage their children after church about the materials they both heard for a deeper understanding for all ages.

Children learn in mixed-age setting. After hearing the story, a mix of activities are offered for children for a fun, yet educationally rich experience that focuses on using music, games, science, cooking, art and storytelling to teach lessons from the Bible.

Vacation Explorers’ Club

Elementary school aged children are invited to explore the world around them during school break through science, arts, music, games, and other adventures. Find out more, here.

Seasonal Sunday School Events

The children and youth of our church experience various group events throughout the year including opportunities to sing during worship, participate in family craft/game/movie nights and act in a Christmas pageant. Our Sunday school year ends on Children’s Sunday, the second Sunday in June, when our children lead the worship service and celebrate with a family picnic and field day out on the Common.
