Kirk of Kildaire



“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”    Proverbs 22:6


Our spiritual education extends to even the youngest of God’s children. On Sunday mornings, young children form their ideas about the goodness and love of God as we nurture them at Kirk of Kildaire, Presbyterian in Cary, NC.

Time with Children

Child care is available during the worship service.

Parents are encouraged to keep their 3- and 4-year-olds with them during the worship service through the ‘Time with Children’. Parents may then take their children to the Nursery. Before entering the Sanctuary, children are encouraged to pick up an age-appropriate Worship Bag that includes Bible story books, crayons, and clipboards. Children’s bulletins are also available from the ushers.

Age: 3- & 4- year-olds
Location: Classroom Building
Time: 10:30 During Worship Service

Children’s Education

Elementary children attend Sunday School where they use the workshop rotation model which uses hands-on activities (storytelling, art, drama, puppets, and video workshops) to help them learn and experience the Bible stories.

Age: Kindergarten through 5th Grade
Location: All students meet in the Classroom Building Room C215 to begin.
Each class then goes to its designated workshop for the day before returning to C215.
Time: 9:15 am Sunday School Hour (during the School Year)

Preparing Children for Participation in Worship (PCPW) is a very special program taught to our second and third-graders for a couple of months.

Discussion includes these and other topics:
The Order of Worship
The Church Year time elements
The meaning of the Sacraments
The Lord’s Prayer
The Apostle’s Creed
The Offering, what it is is used for
This will enable the children to actively participate in worship upon completing PCPW.

Location: Classroom Building
Time: After the Time With Children during the 10:30 am Worship Service.
