Welcome to Ellington Congregational Church's Church School Program! Church School is offered at the second service (10:30 a.m.) from September through June.
Children begin in worship (except on Communion Sundays) and are dismissed to their classes after the Children's message. Classes meet for 40-45 minutes.
On Communion Sundays (the first Sunday of the month), children report directly to the education wing for a multi-age, one-room schoolhouse. The children will be escorted by teachers to join their families in the Sanctuary for Communion.
Children & Communion: The Communion Table at our church is an open table; in other words, all who profess Jesus as Lord and Savior are welcome to share in Communion. However, the decision to allow your child(ren) to receive communion is up to you. If you wish your child to receive, please let them know. If you prefer that your child not receive, please instruct them not to take from the plates at Communion time.
Mission Outreach: Part of the focus of our children's progam is mission outreach. Throughout the year the chidlren will be invited to take part in special mission projects.
Our children's ministries are greatly enhanced by our church's fantastic music programs. Children, second grade and older, are invited to become a part of one (or more) of our children's choirs. Rehearsals begin in September. For more information click here.
