CPC Youth and Children’s
Christian Education (CE) Program
Thank you to those who have served as Sunday School teachers and commissioners over the years. Your dedication and commitment brought the Word of God to countless youngsters. And now, thanks to your feedback, the session and I have been discussing, brainstorming and praying about how we can reorganize CE this season to re-energize adults who have committed to work with our kids and re-ignite excitement in our kids in learning about their faith. We anticipate this to be the first baby step in a longer journey toward totally rejuvenating our Christian Education Program; more on that later.
This season, youth and children’s education will kick off in conjunction with World Communion Sunday on October 1st, and conclude May 20th. This season will be about music, mission, family and fellowship.
First Sunday: Music – We plan to provide opportunities for youth of all ages to praise God through music.
Second Sunday: Mission – One Sunday per month will be dedicated to performing a mission project during the Sunday school hour.
Third Sunday: Word of God – Younger children will be taught the more traditional Sunday School lesson and sent home with stories or other activities to prepare as a family for the following week. Older youth will be given an opportunity to interview members of the congregation about their faith journeys.
Fourth Sunday: Family – Together, parents or adult caregivers and youth will participate in a variety of activities during the Sunday school hour.
Fifth Sunday: Activities for the fifth Sunday will vary and may be held at different venues or times. Activities will be announced by the first Sunday of any month five Sundays.

Christ Presbyterian Church is partnering with Western Fairfax Christian Ministries for their annual Backpack Drive. This year we have been asked to help the kids at Colin Powell Elementary School. We’re asked to provide NEW backpacks, with a mix of gender neutral colors. They should be regular two-strap backpacks without wheels or characters. (No messenger or tote bags please)
Backpacks are due at the church by Aug. 6th and can be dropped off Sunday mornings or during the week in the preschool office.
