Overview of Programs
Sunday School is available to children from preschool age through high school age during the 9:00am and 10:30am church services. Classes are taught by teaching teams of two adults, and provide weekly lessons based on an established curriculum.
Typically, children attend the beginning of all Worship Services with their parents. For Sanctuary services, the children will be called forward for a Children’s Message, as indicated in the bulletin, and then released to be escorted to their classrooms.
For the Upper Room service held at 10:35, the children will be released in the same manner, however there is no Children’s Message.
Infant and toddler care is also available at the same time as Sunday School.
To guide and nurture our children in a loving environment and through prayer to develop and strengthen their relationship with God.
Where and When does it take place?
Sunday School is held weekly on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. beginning mid-September.
At 9:00 a.m., Sunday School will be offered for all children from nursery through high school. During the 10:30 a.m. service, Sunday School will be offered for children from nursery through fifth grade. We also have special events focused around the church calendar.

How do I know if there Is a change to the typical Sunday School format?
If you have questions about the day’s Sunday School format, you may ask the Deacons of the Day stationed in the Narthex prior to each service or check the Announcement Monitor in the lower Narthex entry area for directions.
Where do I pick up my child(ren) after church?
Children of all ages (up through 7th grade) will remain in their Sunday School classrooms until they are picked up by a parent. If you need assistance locating your child’s classroom, you may ask any Sunday School teacher, the Deacons of the Day, or refer to the Church building map.
Does my family need to belong to the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth to participate in Sunday School?
No, Sunday School is open to any child who would like to attend and learn more about God’s love and His works in our lives. However, preregistration is necessary for regular attendees to allow us to be prepared for appropriate staffing and materials. You have three options to register your child/children for Sunday School to ensure a regular spot for your child(ren):
- Paper copies of the Family Ministry Enrollment Form are available in the narthex,
- Download and complete the Family Ministry Enrollment Form (pdf) and return it to the church office, or
- Enroll your child(ren) online with our convenient Online Family Ministry Enrollment Form.
What if I have a Special Needs Child(ren)?
At FPCP, special needs children are mainstreamed into age-appropriate or ability-appropriate classrooms (as determined by the parents and teachers). If you have questions about the appropriate classroom for your special needs child(ren), please feel free to contact Victoria Barkoff, Director of Children’s Ministry, at 734-453-6464, ext. 110 or by email at victoriabarkoff[at]fpcp.net.
