Children’s Ministry: Church School

UCC offers Church School for pre-K, K-3rd, and 4th-5th graders every Sunday morning at 10:00 am. Children join adults in the sanctuary for the “children’s time” and then go to the Church School room with their adult to get signed in.  Our creative, inclusive Church School curriculum includes prayers stations, scripture study, object lessons, service projects, care cards, crafts, and music. Each year the Church School presents a Christmas pageant as well as other special events.  We also offer inter-generational worship services several time per year. Families of all descriptions are welcome here!

UCC Missoula’s Safe Church guidelines help protect the safety of the children and youth in our care.  Therefore, we do not post or reproduce images of people under the age of 18 on any of our social media platforms, publications, or streamed services or events.

    As in past years, this week the children will hide an “Alleluia” banner after our Children’s Time, since we don’t say the word Alleluia from now until Easter. For children, Lent is simply a time to get ready for Easter (what does this mean, and feel like?). In Church School, we will tell the story…
