Purpose and overview:

We include a Christian Education Program as a part of After-School Program on Wednesdays. The format is the same as the Tues/Wednesday program, with Christian Education replacing the Creative Play time.  

We will pick up students at Riley Elementary School at 2:40pm and at Griffin Middle School at 3:40pm on Wednesdays. We will have snacks from arrival, homework/tutoring from 3:30 - 4:30pm for elementary school students, Christian Education 4:30 - 5:30pm for all students, dinner at 5:30pm, and departure at 6:00pm.

We need Christians of any denomination to come help us with the Christian Education Program. We will have a theme for the semester and the children will be divided into small groups by grade with no more than five children in a group with their group leader (that’s you!). Group leaders will sit with their group to help them stay focused during story time and worship and will help them with their crafts.

 

If you have any questions before signing up, please contact Elizabeth Crowe, Director of Children's Programs, at elizcrowe@comcast.net. Once you sign up, she will contact you to discuss details of the program.
