CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AT SOMESVILLE UNION MEETING HOUSE

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IN OUR CHURCH

We invite children to join our Sunday School. Children attend the first few minutes of the 10:30 a.m. service, including a special moment with the minister. They then go to the Parish House with a teacher, to explore the Bible and aspects of our faith, always age appropriate. They then share in the Fellowship Hour with parents after the service ends. The last Sunday each month is a Family Sunday, with children attending the service and assisting at an age-appropriate level.  Sunday School children and teachers usually return to the sanctuary for monthly communion. 

At the end of their 3rd-grade year each child is awarded a Children’s Bible.
Our Christian Education program believes that children and youth should grow in their understanding of being a child of God and being a follower of Jesus Christ. We believe that Christian Education for our young people is essential to ensure balanced church family life and intergenerational activities, now and in our future.

 
PILGRIM LODGE

Our children and youth love to attend our Maine Conference UCC Summer Camp, Pilgrim Lodge. Parents pay the registration fee and our campership fund provides half of the balance. If parents request additional help, it will be provided through fundraising projects.
