Children and Youth Programming at Newman Congregational Church, UCC
As summer comes to an end and children are preparing to head back to school, Newman Congregational Church, UCC welcomes and encourages families in East Providence and its neighboring communities to make our church a part of your family’s routine this Fall. Newman’s Church School Program offers classes for preschool-high school during our Sunday morning worship service using a curriculum from Spirit & Truth Publishing, Living the Word. This curriculum uses games, crafts, and other hands on activities to explore scripture in the classroom and provides resources for families to live out their faith at home.
We kick off our church school year on Sunday, September 10. Families will begin together in worship then children and youth will be invited to join teachers downstairs in our church school wing. Professional nursery care is available for infants and toddlers throughout the service. Worship begins at 9:30am.
Newman’s Church School Program welcomes children and youth of all abilities. Pre-registration, available online at newmanucc.org, helps us prepare the best learning experience for your child(ren) but registration forms are also available in classrooms on Sunday mornings throughout the church school year. Contact Michaela Gillett, Minister for Faith Formation, if you would like more information or have questions about how we can support your child(ren)’s needs.
Our church school isn’t the only program we offer for children and youth. Youth in grades 6-8 are invited to engage in fun and fellowship with our Middle School Youth Group and those in grades 9-12 can join our Senior High Youth Group on our annual mission trip. A variety of family-friendly programs for all ages, like game nights and dinners, are also scheduled throughout the year. Check out our church calendar at newmanucc.org for more information about upcoming opportunities.
Newman Congregational Church is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ and extends this invitation to one and all, living out the example of Jesus’ extravagant welcome.
