About Our Children ministry

Our Children’s Sunday School Classes are exciting and fun as we instill in them that they are loved by God.

Children in Worship & Nursery Ministry

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”  Matthew 19:14

We welcome and encourage children of all ages to be in worship. We understand that little ones may wiggle and move, drop crayons, or whisper a little too loud, yet we  watch while they also sing, pray, and listen along with the rest of the congregation as part of our faith community. 

Children worship bags can be found in the back of the Sanctuary and other activities can be found on the Children's Worship Table located in front of the font.

Understanding that little ones may need a break from worship, our Nursery is staffed by caring individuals who have cleared background checks. 

Playful Beginnings

Playful Beginnings is a preschool program sponsored by Mechanicsburg Presbyterian Church.  The focus is on providing a loving, Christian environment in which all children can experience the informal learning that can contribute to the child’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and religious growth.

The selection of a preschool is an important decision.  We realize that you will have many questions as you begin your search and urge you to come for a tour, visit the classes while the children are here, and talk to our staff.   Handbooks are distributed at the orientation for parents.
