Children’s Ministry is one of the most exciting and important facets of life at Peoples! Our entire congregation loves to explore ways of both engaging children on their level and inviting them into the worship life of the church.
We offer several classes and events for children of all ages!
Children ages 5 and younger are invited to join us in the church nursery for a time of playing, learning, and fun, every Sunday during the 10:00 Worship Hour. Children in the nursery are cared for by our trained staff, and together they spend time each week learning about who Jesus is for them! These youngest children join us during worship for the children’s sermon each week.
Children in grade school are invited to join us for the beginning of our worship service each week. Following the Children’s Sermon, they are dismissed to the Youth Room for a class with our Christian Education Director. Each week finds these kids doing something new and exciting! One week it might be planting window gardens to learn about the seed which fell on good soil, another week they might be learning the American Sign Language signs for the Ten Commandments. We strive to engage all different learning styles in our Sunday School classes, so that all children can experience who Christ is for them.
Junior and Senior High
Our Junior and Senior High students are invited to join us for Worship in the Sanctuary at 10:00 each Sunday. However, many of our students also choose to serve as Sunday School and Nursery helpers during the worship hour, giving back to the younger children of Peoples. If you’re interested in helping out in Sunday School, the Nursery, or at VBS, please contact our office.
Vacation Bible School
The highlight of summers around PPC is, without question, Vacation Bible School! Children ages 2 – Grade 6 are invited to join us for five evenings of fun!
Summer 2017 Vacation Bible School was MEGA SPORTS CAMP. We enjoyed games, Tae Kwon Do, track relays, stories, songs, and a grand finale of Family Worship, a Family Potluck and ending the night with Flying Aces, professional Frisbee performers.
Our VBS 2017 Outreach Project was collecting canned foods for Aid in Milan and our Mission Project was raising an offering to go to the Washtenaw County Special Olympics.
Our VBS 2018 will be happening next summer around mid-July, check back in the Spring for more information!
