Children's Education

Nursery and Toddler Program

(Closed until further notice)

On Sunday mornings, infant and toddler care is available in the Nursery. Our adult babysitters with CPR and First Aid training are employed to care for your children. For your convenience, the nursery is open from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. You will be issued a pager when the child arrives. If a child gets distressed and cannot be comforted, the pager system allows us to quietly contact you during the worship service.



Bibles for Second Graders

At Acton Congregational Church it is a long held tradition to present our second graders with Bibles of their own. The presentation of Bibles takes place during the 9:15 worship service on the Sunday following the beginning of the new Sunday School and church year. A parent/child class is held on Friday afternoon that same weekend. The children are given the New International Version (NIV) of The New Adventure Bible. Each Bible is inscribed with the child's name and includes a dictionary, concordance, color charts and maps, time lines, helpful study notes and information about life in Bible times.



Children in Music

Music and singing is a big part of Sunday School, especially for grades 1-6. Tremendous care is taken to teach songs and hymns foundational to our Christian faith and that correspond to the monthly Rotation theme. Both the Grace Notes Workshop and Communion Sunday Gatherings provide opportunities to sing together. The Children's Choir is for children in kindergarten through 6th grade; it provides special music in worship several times a year. Practices are held at 10:30 AM in the fall and spring. The choir is directed by Amy Stimac.


Hosmer Library

The Hosmer Children's Library is located upstairs off Hartman Hall. The Library is open for browsing and book borrowing any time that the church is open, and especially during Fellowship hours. Each year, books are added to the library in honor of the Sunday School volunteers. These books are purchased from funds in the Sunday School budget.
