Third Grade: "Bible Basics"
It is a long-standing tradition at Second Church to present Bibles to children entering the third grade. This class is a special four-week program where the students, along with a parent, become acquainted with using the Bible. They learn about the contents and the organization of the Bible and how to make using it a part of everyday life.
Fifth Grade: "Joyful Feast" Program
This Lenten course, with a participating parent, examines the Christian Sacrament of Communion. The material covers the Passover roots of Communion participating in an actual Seder meal, and compares our communion practices with those of other faiths. The program culminates in the class participating in communion during the Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service. During the Tenebrae service the chalices that the students made during the program will be used and they will have their own kiln fired chalice to keep as a reminder.
Ninth Grade: "Confirmation Program"
The primary goal of the Confirmation program is discipleship: people who more closely resemble, in lifestyle, beliefs and values, disciples of Christ. An adult member of the congregation works with each student as a mentor. Monthly lessons and meetings are combined with community service and fellowship. The program ends with Confirmation Sunday when the students become members of the church.
