The Children’s Ministry of Second Presbyterian Church seeks to inspire children through the development of their faith and their knowledge as they grow in love of God and the world.
Sunday School: Deep Blue
Deep Blue is offered for older 2’s/ young 3’s through 3rd grade during the 10:50 a.m. worship service. Children begin worship with their families at 10:50 a.m. in the sanctuary and are dismissed from worship after the Passing of the Peace to attend age appropriate classes.
Deep Blue for 4th and 5th graders during the Sunday School hour. Club 45 will begin at 9:30 a.m. in “The Cave” located in room 179. This Sunday School will begin with breakfast and hang out time and transition into the Sunday School lesson. This is a special offering for nine through eleven year olds stuck in-between being a child and teenager needing their own time and conversation to discern their place in the church and community.

After much conversation and following the guidelines of the Presbytery, the Children's Ministry Committee has decided to cancel Smiley Camp for Summer 2020. The size of the camp does not allow for rescheduling this Summer. Full refunds will be issued for any payments that have been made. Please contact Kim Pitchford at Kpitchford@2ndpreslou.org with any further questions or concerns. We look forward to Smiley Camp continuing in 2021!
June 21-July 24
After much conversation regarding the realities of social distancing with children, the Children’s Ministry Committee has decided to cancel in person Vacation Bible School for Summer 2020. VBS will instead be offered online throughout the Summer. VBS is based on five Bible points. Rotations of snack, art, science, Bible story and missions are then created to support each point. This Summer, virtual VBS will run June 21st – July 24th. Each Bible point will be explored over one week with one rotation per day coming to you via email. Materials will be provided and can be picked up from the church on Sunday of each week. Registration is a must however, payment is not required. Please contact Lorie Williamson at email@example.com with questions or concerns. We look forward to in person VBS continuing in the Summer of 2021!

We look forward to Project Serve continuing in 2021!
