Sunday School

Ages 2 – 5th Grade | Sundays from 8:45 – 9:45 AM |
Howard House

A wonderful beginning (or continuation!) of your child’s spiritual growth. Each week we submerge into our faith journey through community, teaching, and discussion. We strive to ensure our lessons are relevant, meaningful, and provide a way to connect children to the Word of God.


Ages K – 5th Grade | Wednesdays from 4:15 – 6:00 PM | PARISH House

Join us Wednesdays for fun, fellowship, music, and crafts. A great way to break up the week and cultivate your child’s connection to God and fellow Sunday School friends. You have the option to stay for our All-Church Dinner afterwards!

Nursery School

Ages 2.5 – 5 Years | PARISH HOUSE

The primary goal of our Nursery School is to serve children and families by offering a nurturing and stimulating atmosphere for young children. We offer the children an opportunity for emotional, physical, intellectual, social and spiritual development in a Christian environment.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

June 24 – 28, 2024 | Enrollment Is Open!

Your kids will dive into an amazing undersea adventure where they’ll experience the ever-flowing, never-ending love of God. At Scuba VBS, kids will be immersed in the Word and discover what living water is really all about! For one week in the summer children and youth ages 3-12 are invited to attend a fun and exciting day program at the Parish House. Camp runs from June 24 to 28, 2024 from 9:15 am until 12:15 pm.


Music is a common language that people all around the world can understand. At PCM, we love to sing and play instruments to express our joy and love for each other and for God. We invite your child to come and explore music with us!

Singers and Ringers | K – 5th grade

Each Wednesday afternoon, our children have exciting musical training and fun Christian education during our Midweek Program. The Bel Melodia (K-2) and Bel Canto (3-5) Choirs sing and ring handbells each week in rehearsal and lead music at our 10:00 am worship service monthly, as well as on special days such as Christmas and Easter. Each year we have Music Sunday in May that is a celebration of all our musical groups from children through adults.

Voice for life program | 3RD – 5TH Grade

We are an affiliate member of the Royal School of Church Music America and use the Voice for Life curriculum for choir and music training. Students in grades 3-5 are paired with an adult musical mentor who works with them individually each week as they learn about music and how to use their voices. After completing one of the five levels of training, each musician is awarded a medal for their achievement. We are blessed with kind, knowledgeable adult musicians who look forward to working with your child!

Sunday School Music | AgeS 2 – 5th grade

Children through fifth grade enjoy music as part of their Sunday School class. They will learn songs and hymns to share at worship services. 

Sarah Michal directs our children’s choirs and would love to meet you and talk more about our music program.
