What to Expect on Sunday Morning
Children’s Sunday School
Washington Presbyterian Church (WPCA) offers Sunday school classes for children from infants to 12th grade.
We understand that Sunday school doesn’t replace, but aids parents in the spiritual nurture of their children. Our classes primarily use Great Commission Publications’ (GCP) curriculum, which is God-focused and Christ-centered. The handprint on all their material stands for “Show me Jesus.” Our goal is to show the kids Jesus in every lesson and to teach the doctrines of grace from the whole Bible before they graduate high school.
Our over-arching aim in our children’s Sunday school is to pass on to the next generation how to know and experience the Lord, through the Bible and prayer, so their foundation may be built on the unwavering rock that is Jesus Christ.
How do you grow in knowledge of the Bible as an adult? Adult Sunday school at WPCA helps us to seek the Lord together by actively engaging in spiritually vibrant discussion centered on the Bible every Sunday morning. Our main “diet” is to teach verse by verse, section by section, through one book of the Bible at a time. We discuss what we are to believe and how we are to live as followers of Christ. We occasionally teach through a topical series (on marriage, for instance) or a broader series on doctrine (as not to “lose the forest amidst the trees”). Also, not insignificantly, the Sunday school hour helps prepare our hearts for the worship service.
Families are welcome to worship together during the worship service. We also provide childcare for children under age 5 during Sunday school and worship service. The nursery offers a safe, nurturing—and fun!—environment, with two adult volunteers present at all times. All childcare workers are approved by our church’s Session and have obtained Child Protection Clearances in the state of Pennsylvania.
