We have an active program of Christian education for children, youth, and adults at TPPC. For a complete update on Christian education programs for children and adults, call the church office at 301-270-5550 or send an email to one of the email addresses below.
Sunday School for children from preschool through the 6th grade is held between 9:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. each Sunday morning during the regular school year.
Many terrific activities are planned for the entire year. In addition to learning about traditional Bible stories, Sunday School students will perform several community service projects, act in plays, create works of art, make new friends, and have a great time - guaranteed!
There is also an emphasis in the church school on becoming a community of caring people and reaching out in mission. Lots of sandwiches for the hungry have been made by church school classes. For example, the children participated in the Annual Help the Homeless Walkathon at Silgo Creek Park.
In addition to Sunday School, there is a "time with children" segment in the worship service. Children from pre-K through 1st grade can leave after this for a special worship service designed for young children, and older children (from 2nd through 5th grade) can go to our children's choir rehersal.
Christian education classes for junior and senior high students are also held between 9:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings during the regular school year.
The joint Search Committee of Christ Congregational Church and TPPC will meet this month to begin advertising for a new three-quarter time Youth Director.
We are seeking a creative and inspirational leader to help two thriving and progressive churches develop a combined youth ministry that brings our youth and supporting adults to the "next level" of inner faith development, community involvement, and spiritual activism. This is a unique opportunity for a person of faith to serve a new community that is growing out of already existing and vibrant teen groups at two distinct congregations in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
The Director of Youth Ministry will develop and implement a cooperative youth ministry between Christ Congregational Church -- United Church of Christ, Silver Spring, MD (CCC) and Takoma Park Presbyterian Church, Takoma Park, MD (TPPC).
Ordained and lay persons will be considered for this "non-called" position.
At CCC and TPPC, we honor and celebrate people of all races, cultures, ages, abilities, sexual orientations and gender.
A full job description is available on the CCC website, as well as on Craig's List
Please keep the Search Committee in your prayers.
Adult Sunday School meets in the church parlor from September to May, also from 9:30 to 10:45. Previous topics have included studying the books of Genesis, Exodus, John and Mark, exploring the Isaiah texts which inspired Handel's Messiah, taking a journey through the Psalms, participating in a DVD-based program called "Living the Questions", and using models such as the the African Bible study model to help church members explore their own spirituality.
All are welcome. For more information on adult Sunday School at TPPC, contact email@example.com.
Starting on October 13th and continuing this fall, the combined women's circles will meet on the second Saturday of the month in the church parlor starting at 10:30 AM. Please bring food to share for lunch at noon.
