Fall 2022 - Everything You need to Know

Fall Christian Education

It’s that time again!  Sunday school will resume on September 11 at 10 a.m. and worship will return to 11 a.m.

Parents are asked to please review our updated Health and Safety Guidelines and complete our  Children and Youth Registration for each student participating. 

All children and youth programs will follow the Sixth Church's established Covid protocols. Masks are required in the building while Allegheny County is in a “medium” or “high” CDC community risk designation; N95 or equivalent masks are preferred while in “high.” Masks are welcome and recommended while in “low.”  All staff, Sunday school teachers, and other volunteers working with children and youth are required to be vaccinated. 

Nursery Care and Extended Session

Nursery care for infants and toddlers will be provided from 10 until the conclusion of worship each week.  Extended Session will be held during worship each week for children ages preschool through 3rd grade. Kids will be dismissed from worship during the Passing of the Peace following the time for children. Jenny Newman and Extended Session staff will provide snacks, storytime, crafts, music, prayer time, Godly Play stories, and free play time.

Sunday school

Preschool through 6th-grade class

We will use a combination of our Feasting on the Word lectionary-based curriculum and Big God, Big Ideas (PCUSA) Confirmation materials throughout the Sunday school year.  Students will have the opportunity to be confirmed into the church in the spring of 2023 if they chose to do so.   Also, for those interested in Confirmation, students will have the opportunity to attend two confirmation retreats at Camp Crestfield led by Pittsburgh Presbytery. The dates for these retreats are Sept. 24-25 and March 3-5. 

Youth Fellowship

Youth Fellowship meeting activities for students in 6th grade up will meet throughout the year for in-person activities and Zoom/online gatherings.
Youth Fellowship dates for September:
Thursday, Sept. 15  6 to 8 p.m. in-person at the church

 Acolytes and Water Pourer

Pouring the baptismal water and lighting the Christ Candle are vital parts of our worship service. There will be a sign-up sheet for Sundays in the narthex of the church for children and youth who are interested in being a part of the service in this way.

We will have a short training for Acolytes and Pourers after worship on Sept. 18.
