Educating our children and youth is something we take very seriously at Faith Des Peres Presbyterian Church. We want them to learn the basics of the Christian faith and the Bible while having fun, too. We also want our children to be an active part of our faith community and feel at home. At Faith Des Peres, our kids and youth are a part of our faith community, not segmented. We value them and their participation. Sunday School meets throughout the normal school year. Please call the church office if you have any questions.
All Children and Youth
Disciples Gathering for Kindergarten through 6th grade takes place the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month following the Young People’s Worship Message. On the first Sundays of the month children attend worship and take part in Feeding the Flock.
Plans are underway for a new children’s ministry to begin in November 2019!
Nursery care for children is offered every Sunday, but children are always welcome in worship!
Childcare for children ages 4 and under is offered in a safe and fun setting. We have a professional, trained caregiver who has gone through a criminal background check prior to serving in any area dealing with children.
Our children spend the first 10-15 minutes in worship with us. Then they attend Disciples Gathering on the 2nd and 4th Sundays for a time of learning just for them. We use the Growing in Grace and Gratitude curriculum that irresistibly captures the imagination of kids by bringing the Bible to life! Kids walk away from class excitedly retelling the stories they just learned and eagerly awaiting what's next.
Confirmation class is offered for youth in 7th and 8th grades who are ready to confirm the promises their parents made at their baptisms and become voting members of the church. Confirmation class covers a wide range of subjects including: God, Jesus Christ, Discipleship, and what it means to be a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
