Every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. we welcome children
and their family to worship. We provide clipboards with crayons
and children’s bulletins to support the parents in their
desire to have the children feel comfortable in the sanctuary.
Ten minutes into the worship service is a Children’s Story
when all children are invited to come and sit at the front of
the sanctuary for a story or a song. Then they are invited to
go with the Sunday School teacher for class that lasts until
the worship time is finished.
The Sunday School teacher is Bobbie Royalty, an
imaginative instructor with a strong faith and a hearty laugh.
She delights in teaching children and is very artisitic! Bobbie
is supported by various other people depending on the occasion
of the year or the size of the Sunday School.
The curriculum for Sunday School is based on Spirit
of the Seasons with special touches by Bobbie!
When asked what they like best about Sunday School
at Eastgate Congregational United Church of Christ, here are
some quotes from children involved in the program: "It's
fun! I wouldn't want to miss it!" "I really like the
crafts we do!"
