Christian Education has been a building block of our Church's foundation ever since young people started attending our church. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these," from Matthew 19:14.


First Presbyterian Church of Taymouth knows that our children are our future and precious to God. We will continue to help families teach and encourage all children according to God's will.


We offer many opportunities for families with children to be a part of worship, fellowship, learning, and fun activities for all ages. From the moment your family arrives at a Sunday morning Worship service, children will receive their own bulletin and a special bag that contains coloring books and crayons. During the service, children are invited to the Children's Sermon with Pastor Scott at the front of the sanctuary. All of us enjoy this part!!


Before Service activities include:

  • When a child turns five and can reach the altar candles, they may be trained to be acolytes. 

  • The Christian Education committee encourages the older children to begin learning how to take attendance, ring the bell, hand out bulletins, and collect prayer cards.


After Service activities include:

  • Sunday School takes place following the Sunday worship service from September through May.

  • Youth Group, 5th grade and up, meet on the first Sunday of each month after Sunday Worship.


Other Youth activities include:

  • Young adults from 8th grade and older are invited to Confirmation class, once a year, to learn more about our faith.

  • Service hours are offered to all 7-12th grade students that participate in different church events.
