Christian Education & Youth

Sunday Church School

We offer year-round Sunday Church School for children ages 3-Grade 6.  Instruction for older children is available if requested.  We have a rotating schedule of dedicated volunteer teachers who use the Heartshaper curriculum materials.  Children attend the beginning of the worship service and then are dismissed prior to the sermon for Sunday School.  Children can also participate at Christmas in the annual Christmas Pageant and in the summer music / theater camp.

Our Christian Education Committee also offers, periodically, intergenerational activities including Birthday Bags for our Food Pantry, Advent Birch logs, a winter congregational luncheon and a July Strawberry Festival to raise funds for our summer music / theater camp.  In June we host an annual Graduation Brunch for the Freedom Elementary School’s 6th graders.

 

Summer Music/Theater Camp

Our Music Director, Carolyn Olzerowicz, coordinates the weeklong summer music/theater camp for about 30 children from the community.  Both the camp and the performances are held at the Freedom Elementary School and are one of the activities of Freedom Old Home Week.  In 2016, the children will perform Elijah.

Adult Study & Bible Study

The Book Discussion Group meets every Thursday morning at First Christian Church at 10 a.m.  The group reads a chapter or so per week and then discusses them under the direction of leaders, David Avery and Bob Bossdorf.

Bible Study also meets weekly on Tuesdays at 10 a.m.  at Camp Calumet.  This group is ecumenical and under the leadership of Pastor Larry Wogman studies the biblical lessons for the upcoming worship service.

Both groups are always open to new members and provide an opportunity for individual study and lively discussion of content and personal ideas.
