Our Church School program runs during the school year and is Biblically based, different themes each year.   Group classes for elementary school children is creative, informing and inspirational; with older children often helping out the teachers.  Music and crafts are woven throughout, and trips to an area nursing home to share such items take place.  On the first Sunday of the month, the children join the congregation for communion.  On the other weeks, they begin the worship service with their families then depart for classes after our minister shares ‘Words With the Children of All Ages” --- which often brings a smile, laughter and/or tear! 

Other highlights of the program includes the Christmas Pageant during Advent and Vacation Bible School in late June.  We also support our children attending Pilgrim Lodge summer camp, an outdoor ministries of our Maine Conference – U.C.C.

Confirmation is offered every few years depending upon the number of middle high / senior high youth interested.  

A youth fellowship program for these same ages is in a transition period.
