Start a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
Our Sunday School and the Bible Class meet in the Church Hall at 10.30 am each Sunday morning, before our morning service.
We normally start in the Magill Room with an opening prayer and then a time of praise, singing some old and some new choruses. After that the children move to the main hall, splitting into different classes depending on their age. After hearing the Bible story, the children complete a worksheet which may include a craft item or require some colouring in.
We use the Go Teach Bible teaching material in our Sunday School classes. After Christmas, we shall be looking at the work of Elisha and finding out about the Old Testament Kings.
After the opening prayer, the young teens move to the Jenkins Room for the Bible Class. The atmoshphere there is a little more informal and they are encouraged to interact and discuss the Bible passage. There may even be some juice and biscuits!
We support the work of the PCI Youth and Children's Project each year through our weekly collections. For 2017/2018, the project is entitled 'What is Church?' - helping children and young people in Zambia and Maynooth understand that they are part of God's church.
