Our Mission & Goal

At Worthington Presbyterian Church, we offer an active, growing children’s ministry that welcomes children of all ages. From Sunday School to youth group to children’s vocal and handbell choirs to fellowship opportunities, there is something for every child - and all are welcome!

Our mission is to welcome children and provide opportunities to grow together in Christ as individuals and as families while becoming integrated into a vibrant community which prepares and supports us as we share the hope of Jesus Christ with one another, our neighbors, and the world.

Our goal is to create an environment that will open the children’s eyes to the splendor of God, and will inspire them to develop their relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Sunday School Information

Our basic curriculum is Spark. It incorporates Bible stories, activities, crafts, media, and games into a full faith experience for children, where children develop the skills to unlock the Bible message and grow their faith by leaps and bounds. Spark will nourish and enrich children's faith, so they can proclaim the good news of God’s love and serve God and neighbor. Children will realize their faith goes with them as they grow.

Spiritual Rites of Passage
Our children's educational programming also incorporates an internally-created curriculum called "Spiritual Rites of Passage," which are designed to guide children in their faith development in an exciting and memorable way. These classes supplement the standard Church School curriculum. Each class is designed to highlight key areas of Christian life. This helps children to develop a firm foundation of knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith that should serve them well now, and as they continue to travel on their faith journey. Spiritual Rites of Passage programming includes the following modules:
  • The Wonders of Worship - an introduction to the meaning of worship and the various parts of a Presbyterian worship service. Designed for Kindergarten.
  • Seasons in God's Love - an exploration of the seasons of the church year and their significance in the life of the church. Designed for children in Grade 2.
  • Exploring the Bible - a Bible skills class, which also includes receiving a presentation Bible. Designed for Grade 3.
  • Hey God, Let's Talk - an exploration of the nature and importance of prayer. Designed for Grade 5.
  • The Sacraments - an exploration into the meaning of the Sacraments. Designed for Grade 4.
  • Stewardship – a look at what the Bible says about time, talents, money, creation-care and justice and advocacy. Designed for Grade 1
