All activities will give participants the opportunity to explore, articulate and share their faith journey. Parents are invited to share suggestions for activities, to encourage their children to participate in the youth program, and to volunteer when help is solicited. 

  • He is Risen...

    He Is Risen Indeed!

  • Spring at the Clock Church

    Spring has arrived at the Clock Church. Flowers are blooming, the banner announcing Easter services is out, and a couple sit on the porch rail enjoying the sunshine before the Palm Sunday concert.

     

     

     

  • 2nd-4th Grade

    April 15th "Jesus Blesses the Children".   The children wondered what it would be like to be invited by Jesus to sit on his lap.  What would Jesus look like?

    April 22nd"The Good Samaritan".  After reading the story about the Good Samaritan, someone who was the least expected to help a beaten Hebrew, the children made "doctor's bags".  What would you put in your "doctor's bag" if you were called to help a person found lying alongside the road?

     

  • Who's Climbing the Walls?

    On Easter Monday, a group of climbers from ages 8-late 50's went to "The Cliffs" in Vahalla to try our feet and hands at climbing 40' walls.  Some scaled those walls like lizards, others well....One, who couldn't climb due to a foot injury (let him tell you that story) rooted for the climbers.  Others while waiting their turn held onto Peregrin, our youngest sport.  There's a picture of everyone climbing.  They are posted up on the church's photo wall.  Come and see.  

                 

     

  • Why I believe...

    Sunday, April 22:  "DaMacPro" reflects on the disciples' hesitant belief in the Risen Christ as it is recorded in Luke 24. 

    Why do you believe in Christ?

  • SS Organ Fund Raiser

    While the adults are in the pews having their sins washed, the children are washing their cars in the parking lot.  Donation of $10 will go to the Organ Fund.

  • Service of the Resurrection

  • The Egg and Treasure Hunts

    The Egg and Treasure Hunts took place after the Service of the Resurrection.

                   

  • 7th Grade Hides the Eggs

    The oldest grade loves to hide the Easter eggs for the younger children.  This year they hid them at 7:15 a.m. after the Sunrise Service. 

                                                                

     

  • Camp Warwick Easter Egg Hunt

    On Good Friday morning Camp Warwick hosted an egg hunt.

    On your mark, get set....

    Our prizes!

  • Seder

    Remembering the Passover in this ceremony is like going through a museum with hands-on displays.  The children hunted for leavened bread, made "sandwiches",

    poured "wine",  asked questions,   and best of all ate.    

  • Palm Sunday

  • Hosanna! Save us!

    Hosanna, save us from...Well, the 5th-8th grade attempted to enact Jesus' triumphal entry after having read the story from all four Gospel accounts.  In their skit, though lacking perhaps the enthusiasm, desperateness, and hope of the crowd lining Jesus' path, the students did discover that much of what they guessed might be the motivations of the people for  crying out, "Hosanna" has not changed in modern times.  What would "Hosanna" to Jesus coming down Broadway mean to people in Tarrytown?  Save us from the Romans?  Certainly not, but save us from our enemies?  Save us from our mess ups or wrongdoing?  Save us from our poverty?  Save us from our fears? Our demons? Our sickness?

     

  • In God's Eyes...We Are All Equal!

     

    The 2nd-4th grade heard the story about a blind man who was brought to Jesus and healed from the Gospel Mark 8:22-26.   None of the students are blind, and neither is teacher Katie.  However, teacher Katie has to wear thick, THICK, eye glasses.  That made her different from her students.  To show that each student is different from the other, they each made stick figures of themselves.  "We're all different, and Jesus loves me and he loves you."
