Christian Education

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL

From September through June, Sunday School classes meet for children ages 3 to 6th grade. We meet at 11:00 am after the children’s moment in worship. This spring, the older class is focusing on how to be a Faith Hero while the younger class is using a Noah’s ark theme to learn Bible stories through puppets. In the late spring, the older class will learn what different symbols in the Christian Faith are all about. All youth are welcome to attend. Child care is available in the nursery during the service for anyone three and under.

   

 Do you ever consume the news of the day and wonder where God is in all of it? Join the adult Sunday School class as we ask that question of a variety of topics of the day with Faith Link, starting at 9:30 am on April 8. This program gives a basic overview of issues we face and applies our faith to help us think through the issues. We will be called to pray, to learn, and to respond each week. You will be given the lesson a week in advance so you have time to read the material and come prepared to discuss it.

As Christians, it’s important that we consider where God is moving and is calling us to move through the world. Our faith isn’t simply about what we believe but about how we live in response to what we believe. Join us as we wrestle together with headlines and scripture. We will have the first lesson ready to go Easter morning so that you can be prepared for when class begins April 8.

This has been a popular class in the past.  Be sure to check it out!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

During the summer, we invite all children to a one week Vacation Bible School featuring Bible stories, singing, science lessons and crafts. This year. VBS will be held at First Presbyterian Church in a joint venture with Rome First. The tentative dates for VBS are July 23-27. We typically meet for 2-3 hours each evening and have a blast! You don’t want to miss out on the fun. Registration information will follow.

CAMPING/RETREATS

Rome First has been well represented at camp over the years.  For some of our youth and young at heart, attending camp is a highlight of the summer.  While the majority of our youth attend at Camp Aldersgate on Brantingham Lake or  Casowasco  on Owasco Lake, you can attend any of the conference camping programs.  Family Life Weekend at Camp Aldersgate is a tradition for many Rome First families.  All camps are set in beautiful  wooded settings throughout New York.  Camperships are available through our church office.  To find out more about camping, go to campsandretreats.org

LIBRARY

Our church library offers a large selection of books that are available for sign out.
