Church School is offered during the school year from 9:00 a.m. - 10:15 a.m. for all school aged children, including high school students. The classes are intimate and the teachers and students have a close relationship as they work together to learn more about God and the world.

The curriculum used for the elementary aged children is the PC(USA)’s own We Believe series that stresses not only the classroom for learning but also provides ways for parents to talk with their children at home throughout the week. The youth also use a PC(USA) curriculum, but the focus is on being able to question and to probe faith, ideas and problems in an open and safe environment. The objective of the class is to give the youth tools to use in their lives as they work out what it means to be a child of God in the world today.

Each month there is a focus on a mission project for all the church school’s classes. The focus varies and has included collecting nickels to help build a school in Nepal, bringing Christmas presents for children at the McKim Center in Baltimore City, participating in One Great Hour of Sharing, collecting food for the local food bank, making cards for our homebound members, and participating in the “Souper Bowl” Sunday promoting the end of hunger.

Music is also incorporated weekly into the Church School. Even as young as three, children are taught songs to sing in worship and to help broaden their experiences in learning about God.

Something quite unique to CPC was the creation of “Second Sundays”. Children from kindergarten through 2nd grade can choose to participate in their own worship service during our regular service. The program mirrors the worship service in the sanctuary with singing, praying, and hearing and responding to a message. It might involve more tactile activities and movement instead of sitting in a pew. Second Sunday is led by members of our congregation including some of our youth who relate wonderfully to the younger children. Second Sundays are during the program year and are held on the second Sunday of each month.
