Our church places tremendous emphasis on Christian Education. Pictured here is the Pitkin window found in our lending library. Samuel Pitkin was the first Sunday School Superintendent of First Church.  

Christian Education

There are Christian Education opportunities for all ages beginning with infant and toddler care.  Sunday School classes are offered for children and youth, pre-school through high school.  In addition to classes, there are picnics and social events.

Classes include weekly Bible lessons and discussion.  Biblical crafts are often a part of the learning process.  Pageants and dramatizations are featured at special times during the year.

Junior Youth Fellowship supplements the Biblical lessons on Sunday morning with friendship and leisure activities for junior highs.  Our meetings build relationships through fun programs and thought provoking conversation.

Senior high youth enjoy an active youth group called Pilgrim Youth Fellowship.  Events include weekend retreats, fun activities, service projects, and social events.  Each summer for one week senior high youth participate in a youth mission workcamp away from home.  At workcamp, together with Christian young people from many different churches, they experience another culture and put their faith into action by helping to repair and weatherize the homes of elderly and chronically impoverished residents.
