REID'S ROOTS

Just like the roots of a plant ensure its growth and future, the roots of Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church are its children.

All ages, races, and lifestyles are welcome, and we will invest deeply in each individual child to prepare them for the life God has in store.

PIPS (6 months - 2 years)

The Pips is designed to nurture children physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The children learn about God’s love for them through their interactions with caregivers, Bible stories, songs, and age-appropriate fun activities designed just for little ones. Our staff understands the special nurturing each child needs and strives to see that each child feels and understands Jesus’ love for him/her.

Children are assigned to and move through rooms based on developmental milestones, such as infants, crawlers, and walkers, until they are toddlers. Toddlers are assigned to a classroom with other children their age and remain in that classroom until moving to the Shoots classroom the fall after they turn 2-years-old.

SHOOTS (2 - 3 years)

What better time to start teaching about how much Jesus loves them than when children are young? Paul reminds Timothy that he had the privilege of knowing the holy Scriptures “from infancy” (2 Timothy 3:14-15). Our Sunday morning classes include helping children learn about God and develop a relationship with Him at their level, learning that God is great, that He made the world around them, and that He loves them.

HOLY MOLY / SUNDAY SCHOOL

Sunday School

New and exciting things are on the horizon for this year's Sunday school program! We have modified our Sunday school program just a bit to meet the needs of busy families everywhere. Each week, we will post a video with the weekly lesson on Reid Memorial's website.

You can watch the lesson any time that is convenient for you and your child - on the way home from soccer practice, after school or even on the way to church on Sunday mornings. Our hope is for families to have access to the lesson at home, to create opportunities for parents and children to explore the story more fully and to keep children engaged when they may not be able to attend Sunday school in person.

During the Sunday school hour, the children will participate in hands-on activities that relate to the video lesson. Join us in rooms 210 and 211 on Sunday morning for Sunday school!
