Our ministry with children is guided by the understanding that all children are a gift of God. We share in affirming that all children are:
Created by God and created good;
All children are a gift to the whole human community;
All children have a real faith and gifts for ministry;
All children have the right to be children;
And all children are not just tomorrow, but they are today.
For more information about children's faith formation, or to find out how you can be involved, contact Amy Wilson, Director of Children and Family Ministries.
Godly Play is our Sunday School program for children ages 3 years old through 5th grade. It is based on an interpretation of Montessori religious education and is an imaginative approach to working with children, an approach that supports, challenges, nourishes and guides their spiritual quest. Our storytellers capture the attention and imagination of every child around the circle as they share stories from the Bible and encourage the children to reflect on them.
Godly Play meets on Sunday mornings, 9:00 - 9:45 a.m., in the Godly Play suite on the second floor.
Danville Youth Connection (6th - 12th Grade)

Danville Youth Connection is a shared ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Danville, Trinity Episcopal Church, First Christian Church. DYC is a great place to find true friendships, exciting events, and important lessons about life’s challenges. Most importantly, it’s a safe place to connect with a real God who is passionately seeking us!
