CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

 
 

Nourishing Spiritual Growth for All Ages.

FREE Classes offered at Christ Church United include:
 
NURSERY
A nursery for infants through 3 year olds is staffed by volunteers and provided during the Sunday worship service.
 
PRE-SCHOOL
Grade 3: Christ Church United’s Church School program is offered on Sunday mornings from 11 am to Noon for children in Pre-K through Grade 3. Our program runs from September through May, and culminates with Youth Sunday, which is held in early June. Our second grade students are presented with their own Bibles midway through the Church School year.
 
JUNIOR FELLOWSHIP
CCU’s Junior Fellowship Program is a hands-on and creative approach to lead fourth, fifth and sixth grade students to learn the teachings of Jesus and the Bible. Bible verses are taught in a themed manner, and based on those themes, the students use their creativity to write puppet plays, that they present to the congregation.
 
YOUTH MINISTRY
The Youth Ministry Program at Christ Church United is for youth grades 7-12. Our mission is to provide a Christian learning environment that includes the Five F’s; faith, fellowship, friends, fun, and food. Meetings are usually Sunday nights during the school year from 5-6:30, and always start with food, so it is okay if you haven’t had dinner yet! During our meetings we discuss Bible lessons and explore different ways in which we can “Practice Our Faith”, in our everyday lives. We play games that reinforce some of the Bible lessons and make learning fun. Our group helps out with church functions such as suppers, creating worship services and helping out during Sunday morning worship.
 
ADULT BIBLE STUDY
Spiritual growth and the journey of discipleship do not end with high school. Adults of all ages and stages are encouraged to continue learning about the bible and faith through various classes offered seasonally. A class for exploring church membership will take place in the fall, one on the topic of hope will meet in the weeks leading up to Christmas (Advent), and a bible study will commence in January .
 
Christ Church United also offers the Sacrament of Baptism for all ages and Confirmation Classes for 9th-12th graders.
 
SAFE SANCTUARY
Christ Church United of Dracut is a “Safe Sanctuary”, upholding guidelines of ethical behavior toward children and youth through practices such as teacher background checks, training, and the guarantee of two adults in every classroom.
