Children + Family Ministries

It’s fun with a purpose

Pennington Presbyterian Church partners with families as they journey through all the twists and turns, the ups, and the downs that life takes. It’s our desire that each child, from infancy through fifth grade, grows to know, love, and follow Jesus. From the moment of birth onward, we provide opportunities to nourish children’s budding faith. Our leaders are faithful people who have been trained and equipped to create a meaningful and safe environment for every child.

Beginning Sunday, April 24th, 2022 infants and toddlers can be with their parents or can be cared for in Room 102 of the Nursery School Wing. After the Time with Children, children ages 3-7 may return to their pews or go down to childcare as well.

Family Ministry Team

Family Ministry at PPC focuses on the fellowship and nurturing of the families in our church. The Team meets periodically to plan events that connect to the themes and seasons of the church year. These fun, family-oriented activities help our families connect to God, each other, and the wider community. To join the team or to receive updates about family ministry events, please contact the church office.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Local congregations in Pennington traditionally join together over the summer to offer a week-long, ecumenical Vacation Bible School program for students, age 4 through elementary school. Adults and older students join in the fun by volunteering for the program.
