SUNDAY SCHOOL PROGRAM Have you been wondering what the children do during Sunday school time ? We have been learning about ….. LIGHT SERVICE TABLE Through talking about the Golden Rule and the Greatest Commandment, they are learning to let their lights shine! Our lawn signs about peace and love shared our light in the community. By helping assemble health kits, making cookies for Pantry Soup, providing beautiful Christmas cards for our friends and shut-in, and participating in peer tutoring are using their talents to serve others. Learning about baptism and Communion is teaching them about the ” Table” of our faith. Participating in Advent and Christmas events, and Sunday worship teaches them the traditions of our own church family. Besides that, we are all forming new friendships and having fun !

Wendie, Interim Sunday School Coordinator Sunday School Sunday School offers our children the opportunity to learn about God’s love, hear about Jesus and his disciples, act out the great stories of the Bible and make new friends. We have something for all ages including parents and guardians who are welcome to visit and join in the fun at Sunday School. We form our faith habits together at First Congregational Church of Sharon, a faith community committed to growing in Light, Service and an open Table. We have a number of active groups of children: Cradle to Tots Room Infants and toddlers are welcome to stay with their parents during worship services. However, we do have an adult-supervised cradle room for families who’d like to have their babies and toddlers cared for during worship. This room offers toys and books read by our volunteers who help start your child on the path towards knowing God’s love in community. Youth Fellowship We a number of active groups for our youth at First Congregational Church of Sharon. Grade School – all ages from pre-K through 5th grade levels. We’ve found that our children love to teach each other and share as they grow together. We have two teachers to give each age level the attention they need but allow the children to learn and play collaboratively. Middle School – all ages from 6th through 9th grades. Our middle schoolers focus on Bible study, living our Church Covenant and enjoy service projects. Occasionally, they join the Grade school as mentors and guides helping us take our Faith out into the community. In addition to weekly Sunday School, our Middle Schoolers meet once a month for First Friday club, from 7 pm – 9 pm the first Friday of each month during September through May for games and activities of their own choice with friends. High School – all ages from 10th grade through Senior year. Our confirmed youth enjoy attending worship service and giving back to their church community as the volunteer to read Children’s Time story, assist in the Cradle to Tots Room or Grade School, lead service projects, as well as bring their musical talents to worship service.
