The Sunday School ministry at Hamilton Square is offered to children of all ages; from toddlers to senior high, and is designed to establish children in the faith by effectively teaching them the truths of God’s Word.
Each week, children are introduced to historical events recorded in the Bible. These are used to point out and correct the thinking and actions that God calls sin, and to instruct the children to live their lives in ways that please God. Weekly lessons through verbal instruction, visual aides, singing, and crafts for the younger ages are conducted by knowledgeable and experienced teachers in an age-appropriate environment.
Sunday School is also a place where we introduce children and young people to the gospel of Jesus Christ with the goal of leading them to a settled assurance of their own personal salvation and relationship with God. Each student is sent home with a take-home paper full of fun activities and a story to which the children can relate for application.
Children love Sunday School - yours will, too!
The day doesn't end with Sunday School. Following the Sunday School hour, Hamilton Square offers its children a time of worship especially suited just for them. During the adult worship service at 10:50 a.m. children ages four through six gather for Beginner's Church while Second through Sixth graders gather together for Junior Church.
Beginners join the Juniors at the beginning of the service for singing and offering time. The two groups split up the remainder of the time for a more age-appropriate time of worship. The Beginners are taught a lesson, create a craft and munch on snacks. The Junior class includes a sermon, scripture memorization, a challenge from Scripture and a time of prayer.
Children's church gives children the opportunity to understand what worship is and why we worship in the way we do. We explain clearly the Lord's Supper, Baptism, the singing of hymns, corporate Bible reading and taking up the offering. When the children "graduate" into the adult worship service, they know Whom they worship and the significance of each portion of the worship service.
