Children

Christian Education is extremely important at The Presbyterian Church at Woodbury.  Our Director, Judy Platt, brings energy and creativity to the programming for all ages, especially children.  Below you will find a description of many of the programs offered for children of all ages.  For more information, e-mail Judy at judy.platt@pcwoodbury.com or click here.

Children’s Message:  Early in the worship service, the children are invited to come up to the front pew for a faith message prepared just for them.  After the message, children ages 3-5 may go to a beginner’s class in the Church School for the rest of the worship hour.

Vacation Bible School:  Our church is part of a group of churches that have V.B.S. together in July for 5 days.  We rotate churches among The Presbyterian Church, Kemble Methodist, St. Stephen’s Lutheran, Holy Angels Catholic, and Central Baptist. 

Rally Day:  At the start of the Church School season in September, some of the classrooms are transformed into places in the Bible.  Stories of the Old and New Testaments are re-enacted to make the Bible come alive.  Elijah defeating the prophets of Baal, Moses parting the Red Sea, the walls of Jericho falling down, the Parable of the Good Samaritan, and Peter’s escape from jail are a few of the stories from the past four years.  Everybody in the church is invited to walk through the stories.  Click to see pictures from 2008, 2009, and 2010!

Hayride:  This annual fall adventure, sponsored by the Membership & Outreach Task Force, includes riding in a wagon full of straw/hay through a wooded campground, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over an open fire on a sandy beach, and enjoying the fall weather.  This event is fun for all ages.  Click to see from 2009 and 2010 .

Church Christmas Party:  In the evening of the first Sunday of Advent, the church families come to a soup and sandwich supper to make an Advent wreath of live evergreen cuttings.  Each family is also given the traditional set of four candles to put in the wreath to be lit each of the four Sundays of Advent.  A variety of other craft options for different ages are also provided.

Christmas Pageant:  The story of the nativity, re-enacted by the children of the church.  At the worship service, the shepherds, wisemen, and angels come to honor the birth of the Baby Jesus to Mary and Joseph of Nazareth.

Church Picnic:  Usually held in June, picnic and games are offered for all ages.  This is a great event to wrap up our programming year and kick off summer.  Click to see pictures!
