COVID has put a burden on church activities everywhere. We have started to resume our normal activities and added a few new activities to enhance our relationship with God.
Adult and children's Sunday School is an important focus of our Sundays. Our Adult Sunday School is lead by one of our members from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings. Movies and videos are often used as part of the lesson plan.
Children's Sunday School takes place at the same time. A curriculum is selected by the teachers, with arts and crafts augmenting the lessons being taught. The children's Sunday School class often does special singing and presentations for holidays like Christmas and Easter. Students lead worship once or twice each year under the guidance of the Sunday School teachers.
Sunday School runs in sync with the normal school year with a break in the summer months..
We are blessed to have a excellent, professional organist as our music director. Music is selected based upon what the sermon and scripture of that Sunday will be.
Each summer we have had very successful VBS programs. Church Leadership, Christian Education, the Presbyterian Women group and the congregation come together to support this activity. Check back to see when VBS will resume.
Thanksgiving opens the Holiday Season for us. Our Deacons collect food items for the local Food Pantry. In addition we as a congregation collect personal items and gloves, scarves, and hats for the homeless of Wilkes Barre. Our ongoing work for One Great Hour of Sharing during lent and Advent Special Offerings to support other mission work is a corner stone of our congregation.
