As a congregation committed to uphold the promises made at baptism, we teach our children to live the love of Jesus Christ and to help them recognize the work of God in their lives and in the world.
Young Children and Worship
Young Children and Worship is a multi-sensory worship experience for children age 3 through 2nd grade. During the 9 a.m. worship service, the children are excused after the children’s sermon (approximately 20 minutes into the service) to their own Worship center to experience God’s word through storytelling, prayer, art and music.
We have a wonderful team of dedicated, caring teachers committed to providing a strong church school program for the children, teaching them the fundamentals of Reformed faith and leading them on a life-long spiritual journey. Sunday school is offered during the school year from 10 to 11 a.m. on the 3rd floor. Room assignments are listed by grade in the Sunday bulletin and also on the bulletin boards located in the hallway on the 3rd floor. Families are asked to register their child for any of the programs at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church. These forms can be downloaded by clicking on the Christian Education Forms link located on the right.
Growing with God
This program is offered during the summer months at the 8:30 a.m. outdoor service. Children 3 years of age through 2nd grade are invited to come to the vegetable garden following the Children’s sermon. This is their time to worship together and also learn about gardening so that the produce which is harvest may help our neighbors who are in need.
Is our Tuesday, midweek after-school program for children and their families. Every Tuesday during the school year from 4:00 until 6:30 p.m. the children are engaged in recreation, bible study, worship skills and dinner. It is a time of fellowship and fun while nurturing a faith relationship with Jesus Christ. Click here for more information.
“Mission Possible” – Summer Camp for Children
July 11 & 18, August 8 & 15
11:30 am to 2:30 pm
This summer, the Christian Education council is offering four Thursday afternoon camps for children ages 5 to 11 (children entering kindergarten through fifth grade). Each session will be devoted to teaching the children about discipleship and how they serve the Lord by serving others. Games, stories, science experiments and crafts are just some of the fun things that are planned for each day.
The dates for the camps are July 11, July 18, August 8 and August 15 from 11:30 to 2:30 pm. The cost is $5.00 for each session that your child attends. The children are asked to bring a sack lunch and to dress for outside participation unless the weather prohibits. (This includes sunscreen and hats.)
