PRESCHOOL CHURCH SCHOOL
Preschool-aged children enjoy church school in a centers-based classroom with interactive lessons using PCUSA Growing in Grace and Gratitude Curriculum. Children hear a Bible story each week and then have the opportunity to act out the story, create an art response to the story, or retell the story.

ELEMENTARY CHURCH SCHOOL
At First Presbyterian Church, elementary children participate in "Trinity Trail," based on a model of church school called the Rotation Model. This model is based on the theory that adults and children alike have different preferences in the way they learn. Children learn Bible stories by visiting a different workshop each week. In one workshop, they might act out the story, while in another workshop they might work on a computer using Biblical software. The rotations change every four weeks. Shepherds greet children each week and guide one class for the entire school year.
