During the school year, Church School meets during our 10 am worship service and provides for both activities-centered learning about the Bible and our Christian faith, and a weekly experience of worship and communion.
Children in Kindergarten through 7th Grade begin worship with their families, move to Church School after the reading of the lessons, and return for communion.
Younger children go directly to their classes at 10 am.
Classes are taught by members of both the St. Matthew's and Wilton Presbyterian Parish. If you are interested in becoming a Church School teacher, please reach out to Samantha Trolice.
Summer Church School
Every Sunday throughout the summer, there is a combined grade Church School class for all children up through 5th grade.Nursery care is also provided for children up through 3 years old.
Holiday Church School
On vacation weekends we combine Kindergarten through 7th grades to offer a special lesson and activity time for all. We take this opportunity to invite special guest teachers such as Sharon Pearson, a nationally known religious educator, who often leads children through "Godly Play". "Godly Play" is a Montessori-based approach to teaching children about faith which is very meaningful and involving for all ages.
Fourth Grade Bibles
Every fall, all fourth grade students are given colorful Spark Bibles in celebration and recognition of their increasing maturity and readiness to read God's Word on their own with understanding. They receive them in the 10 a.m. service surrounded by their parish family.
There is a strong emphasis in our curriculum for encouraging our children to be givers and to serve others both within our church communities and in the larger world.
In the fall and the spring, each class makes small individualized gifts of food or crafts which are then gathered together from all the classes into "Give A Smile" gift bags. These gift bags are then delivered by Church School families to 20 people within our two churches to let them know that we are thinking of them and giving them a smile.
Every year, a Sunday or two before Christmas, children of all ages are invited to participate in the Annual Christmas Pageant.
