SCOTCH PLAINS — Willow Grove Presbyterian Church, will hold its Fall Kick Off and Homecoming on Sunday, Sept. 11. The 10 a.m. worship service will include inspiring music and a sermon to encourage you through the week. On the fourth Sunday of each month, the church’s worship is contemporary in flavor, including multimedia, guitar, keyboard and drums.
Every Sunday, after Pastor Cynthia’s Message for Young Disciples, young people leave to participate in classes for their age group. For young children under age 3, parents may keep them in the worship service, but the church has a well-equipped nursery called The Children’s Ark, available for them to play under the care of church volunteers. Parents can be reached with pagers if needed. After worship members of the congregation share coffee and other refreshments every Sunday morning in Alexander Hall.
For children from age 4 through grade 1, this fall the church enters into the sixth year of a Sunday School curriculum called “Discovery Kingdom.” This class leads children to the discover the meaning of Christian faith through a rotation model, using multi-media resources such as computers, music, science, puppets, drama, arts & crafts, food, puzzles, games and videos. The same Bible story is the theme for four weeks.
For children from grades 2 to 5, the church will continue with Live B.I.G. Children learn to find their way around the Bible and begin to see how the stories guide them in their lives. For children in grades 6 to 12, classes are held on Sunday morning. They will be viewing dynamic video series from Alpha and discussing topics relevant to living the Christian faith. The Youth Group meets every other Sunday night at the church from 6 – 7:30 p.m. for games, discussion, service projects, trips and recreation.
