Plan to join us for the most important week in the Christian Year starting with Palm/Passion Sunday on April 14. This service combines two services into one, with the children processing with palms, joyful anthems, and through dramatic readings and the Chancel Choir’s presentation of The Crucifixion we attempt to capture something of the conflict […]
This week we met Mr. X, who plays the xylophone. We put x-rays on a projector and pretended we were doctors examining patients. At our craft table we made x-rays, xylophones, pirate maps and Easter bags. We read Xavier’s Ox’s Xylophone, Experiment, Fox in Socks, and X-Men. We were excited to go on a field […]
April arrives with the hope and promise of Easter! We explore the Gospel of John, finding times when people had lost all hope … and then witnessed the infinite power of God. We’ll learn about the raising of Lazarus along with the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. These events give us the hope we […]
A delicious selection of wholesome homemade soups and breads provided a wonderful prelude to the Ash Wednesday service that helped us ‘jump-start’ this year’s Lenten season. Thank you to everyone who cooked, set-up, cleaned-up, read scripture, sang, colored signs, lit fires, and politely agreed to mess up their fingers and have their foreheads marked with […]
Thank you to Erin and Maggie for entertaining those attending the Communion Brunch with their amazing Irish Step Dancing. The girls rushed over from another event to make our Irish Breakfast complete!

It’s not often that in casual reading of a fictional short story one simple phrase will make me stop to reflect. But the veracity of this statement seemed worth considering: “This is the period when your brain and your heart form and solidify.” It brought to mind the argument I developed to convince my parents […]
It has been a while but I am back! For those who don’t know me, I have been a part of the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church since I was born. My siblings and I were all baptized here, my brother was “baby Jesus” in the 1993 Christmas Pageant (he was only 3 months old). My […]
Fly on the wall views as we finish our February theme of Service–Lending a hand to help someone else. Note children growing in faith and having fun, led by adults who are good sports!
What better way to celebrate the letter P than by having a pajama day! We also served pancakes. We played with the parachute and pretended to pop popcorn on it with the balls. Our Nursery class did pom pom painting,made puppets, pajamas, and pigs for Lunar New Year. They did a penguin dance. They read […]
