Church Roof Campaign

Elementary Youth Calendar: 2013-2014


Elementary youth have classes each Sunday, except during multigenerational services, when they stay in church with their families. Elementary youth begin the hour in the sanctuary participating in the first parts of the Order of Worship. After the Story for All Ages, they go to their Religious Education classes in Averill Parlors.

The Elementary Youth curriculum this year is Margaret K. Gooding’s book, A Stepping Stone Year. The six units in this book are "Beginning Myths", "The Wonder of Birth", "The Adventures of Our People", "Wonderings About Death" and "Making Decisions".
