Children & Youth Sunday School

SPARK is our Sunday School program for children ages 3 through 5th grade.  Children are dismissed for their classes following the children’s time in worship.

Our school-year Sunday morning education program for children ages 3 through middle school is coming to an end June 11.

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL begins June 18 – HELP NEEDED!

Each summer we offer an omnibus program for children ages 3 through grade 5 during our 10 o’clock worship service.  This program is staffed by volunteer parents and friends who commit to taking a one-week turn leading students through our HOLY MOLY curriculum.  HOLY MOLY makes leading Sunday School very easy.  All the materials you need will be provided and you can count on two or more high school youth to help you get the job done.

Please sign up for a date via email … linda@bbpc.org or sign up outside Linda’s office.  The curriculum for each week can be found there.

DATES for SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL …

New Mission/Service Project: “KC”

Kid’s Connection Mission Project     

Kid’s Connection (K.C.) is a FREE program offered once a month for 4th  through 6th grade  children in the Bound Brook area in the hope of offering a safe, positive environment for them.  We provide a meal along with the opportunity for socialization, physical activity and creative development.  In a world where there can be challenging life circumstances, we hope to empower children to make healthy, good choices in their lives, to feel affirmed and to believe in themselves.

Our Mission is to provide a safe, positive option once a month for 4th through 6th grade children in the Bound Brook area who are potentially at-risk for encountering challenging life circumstances either now or in the future.  Some children may live in poverty and not have enough food, some may have difficult family situations and others may eventually be targeted by drugs or gangs in their neighborhoods or at school.  Some may simply be lonely.  We will provide a meal along with the opportunity for socialization, physical activity and creative development in a safe environment.  We hope to empower children to make healthy, positive choices in their lives, to feel affirmed and to believe in themselves.

The Program: 1st Wednesday of Each Month from 6 pm to 8 pm
