Christian Education Ministry

Delafield Presbyterian Church continues to serve Christ in our children and our youth. In recognition that Christian Education is vital to our faith, our desire is to facilitate the spiritual growth of the next generation of faithful servants. With that objective in mind, we utilize curriculum that continues to explore Christian values from pre-school, through the teen years and beyond. We coordinate programs and strategies to aid the spiritual development and discipleship of believers into Christ-likeness.


The Christian Education Committee continues to be actively involved. This committee is comprised of a variety of people in the church – Sunday school teachers, parents, grandparents, and other interested parties. The committee helps choose the curricula, plan and man special events, such as youth activities, kid’s involvement in worship, Christmas pageant, etc.


Children’s Sunday School

The Sunday school program continues using the curriculum called “Seasons of the Spirit.” This curriculum is based on the church calendar, so that topics covered in worship are also covered in Sunday school. Lessons are posted in the weekly bulletin so parents can have meaningful conversations with their children about faith and what it means to follow Jesus.

Our Sunday school class is offered to children from five years to twelve years of age. Our teachers are Candy Morakinyo, Lori Petersen, and Patti Rojas. Teachers rotate Sundays and are sometimes assisted by Junior High and High School students. Here’s just a few of the exciting Sunday school events from this past year:

  • We have been learning more about gardening and the community garden at KMUPC.  We even took a field trip to the garden to learn more about it. We are hoping to take another trip to the garden this spring.
  • We sold soup mix jars and raised enough money through the Heifer Program to buy 2 sheep.
  • We made the bread for the communion. Each child made their own pretzel to enjoy.  Steve Petersen helped with this project.
  • We learned the Lord’s Prayer and also presented it to the congregation in sign language. We are learning The Beatitudes this spring.
