Linda Sawyer is emailing the Sunday School materials each week to the homes of our
elementary and preschool children. Video lessons that accompany the Sunday School material
will be posted here on the POP website. Due to copyright restrictions you will need a username
and password to view the video lessons. Linda will send these with the emailed materials.

If you wish to receive the Sunday School materials and are not on Linda's mailing list,
please call the church office or email Linda at
firstname.lastname@example.org to be included.
The number of videos has grown large enough to make this page hard to load. Therefore, the Children's videos have been placed in a YouTube Playlist. All of the Children's Videos from the Pandemic period can be found there.Children's Video Playlist
Teaching and leading our children is a central ministry of our church. When we witness a baptism, we as a congregation pledge to do all in our power to support the baptised person in their life in Christ. We rely upon many dedicated volunteers to provide an environment where our children can learn of the love that God has for them.
Children in preschool and kindergarten through grade 5 are Champions. In the Sunday morning 10am ministry for children the Bible is taught creatively with skits, videos, music and interactive storytelling. Grade level small groups are intentionally shepherd by loving leaders dedicated to sharing God's love. All of the church school leaders and assistants are required to have a background check.
The acronym we have chosen for the church school is SHINE
Share in God's word. (worship)
Help others. (service)
Invite others to know Jesus. (evangelism)
Nurture friendships. (fellowship)
Experience God's love. (discipleship)
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good
works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
