We are blessed with our thriving church school. We are proud of our kids and their endeavors. We are thankful for our teachers. Our Board of Christian Education is dedicated to providing a quality children’s program.
Christian Education Program
Nursery care is provided during worship service for our youngest members and church school classes begin with Pre-K and continue through 8th grade.
Second graders attend communion class and prepare to receive their First Communion during World Communion Sunday in October.
Confirmation classes are led by the Pastor for students in the 7th & 8th grade and include field trips and study to explore their commitment to their faith. After confirmation, our youth members participate in the Pilgrim Fellowship Youth Group. The Youth Group enjoys several events and service projects such as caroling, an apple picking/pie baking fundraiser, and helping prep for a New Year’s Eve dinner at a local shelter.
In addition to the church school curriculum, the children participate in a philanthropy project, designed to encourage them to care for those less fortunate. This year’s philanthropy is Family Promise of Bergen County.
The CE program holds several fun events throughout the year such as “PizzaFest”, where local pizzerias donate pies and participate in a fun pie tasting event, and an “Everything but the Bird” food drive at Thanksgiving. Other church school events include a Christmas Pageant, Easter Egg Hunt, twice-yearly picnics and Church School Sunday – where the children plan the service, explaining what they have learned!
Youth Praise Choir
Our Youth Praise Choir has taken on a new, fun lyrical direction! The last 15 minutes of each Sunday school session sees a mad dash to the choir room for swinging & swaying under our music director, Patricio’s, guidance.
