Sunday Church School
Temporarily suspended due to Covid 19.
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
In past years our Music Director, Carolyn Olzerowicz, has coordinate a 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 2019, the children performed Life of the Party.
It is our sincere hope that we will be able to offer camp again once the coronavirus has run its course. Check back!
