Christian Education

Children and Youth Sunday School

Christian Education provides Sunday School for children and youth in preschool through grade 12, from September through May.  Youth in grades 7 through 12 are invited to join our Youth Group for activities centered around spiritual development, mission and just plain fun!

In September 2019, Dover UCC Christian Education implemented the Godly Play curriculum to enable our children and youth to begin and build on their personal relationship with God.  Godly Play is a self-directed program delivered through story telling, individual “work time” and community/sharing development.

Each Sunday, children and youth will join their families in the sanctuary at 10:00 AM for the beginning of the worship service.  After the Children’s Message, they move to their respective classrooms.

“Family Sunday” – The first Sunday of the month (Communion Sunday); the children and youth will remain in worship.

In alternating years, our children and youth are involved in:  Summer Vacation Bible School (VBS) an ecumenical program delivered through a joint effort of several churches in the area; and Peace Village, teaching children and youth skills in conflict resolution, empathy, creating inner peace through the development of inner strength, connecting with the natural world, and collaborative leadership.
