Youth

K-5TH GRADE

PYC - Presbyterian Youth Club (3rd-5th Grade)

PYC is for elementary school students grades 3- 5 and meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:15 - 7:30 pm. Activites include interactive Bible lessons, games, mission activities, and a meal halfway through the evening. A special homework club (7:30 - 8:15 pm) is available for children with older siblings who attend the KIX or TIM youth groups on Wednesdays.

FaithQuest Sunday School (K-5th Grade)

FaithQuest is the Sunday School program for children in kindergarten through 5th grade. FaithQuest is based on the Workshop Rotation Model for Christian Education. Recognizing that children learn differently and through repetition, major Bible stories and concepts are taught using activities that actively engage all the senses. Students hear the same Bible lesson repeated for a 2, 3, or 4 week period as they "rotate" through different learning areas to experience it through several different ways: art, cooking, drama, puppetry, audiovisual, movement, Bible skills, computers, music, and storytelling.

FaithQuest students gather in the Sanctuary at 9:15 am for an opening and then leave with their Shepherds for their workshops. At 10:15 am, students are picked up by their parents.

FaithQuest’s workshops are:

Cine’ 1 – audio and visual presentations usually with popcorn!

FirstCity – drama or puppetry

FirstMoves – games with whole-body or cooperative learning

FirstTemple – Bible skills using computers and games

FirstVillage – storytelling

FirstXpression – hands-on art or cooking projects
