Sunday School: A Place for Children and Teens

Do you wish for more community in your life and the lives of your children?

Would you like your children to have….?

  • conversations about kindness in the midst of diversity
  • a place to develop and explore their sense of purpose
  • a place to talk about moral values that affirm all people
  • an intergenerational community that cares for them
  • an intergenerational community with which to have fun
  • opportunities to serve and care for each other, our neighbors and the earth
  • a basic understanding of Bible stories and tenets of the Christian faith
  • a place to question beliefs and develop their own moral understanding of the world
  • a worship experience that uses inclusive language
  • the opportunity to meet people who have a faith based on love and justice

If these things intrigue you, Prospect Park United  Methodist Church may be the place for you.

Visit us for a few Sundays, come now and then, or become a regular member of our community. 

Sunday School for PreK-8 meets every Sunday from 10:00-11:15 AM during the school year (September – May).

Sunday School starts in the worship service where children participate in the opening call to worship, a song and a children’s time.  Around 10:20 they head downstairs for age appropriate educational activities.

Senior High Youth Group
 meets every Sunday from 11 am – noon.

This group begins with snacks—fortification—and then retreats to the Balcony Youth Room for activities and edification! The season will include service projects, fun activities, and studying New Testament stories.

Adult Education

Adult Education & Enrichment discussions are held from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM most Sundays, September-May for any and all adult spiritual seekers! Adult Education belongs to the learners. The group will engage in bible study during the fall learning hour.

Adult Education, during the Sundays in Lent, centers around a selected text that participants read and discuss together.
