Education for Children

St. Paul UCC is a child-friendly community of faith that values children and seeks to provide them with opportunities to grow spiritually and explore their own faith through Christian education, worship and service experiences. Children’s programs are for all children ages pre-school through 5th grade.

Each Sunday begins with the children joining in worship to hear a special children’s message (kids stay for the entire service on Praise Sundays.) After the children’s message, the kids are dismissed from worship to participate in the Sunday School program, Journeys.


A Christian education experience for children held from September through May. St. Paul Kids take Journeys to the wonderful places that Jesus and the disciples inhabited. The education experience for kids on Sundays uses a multi-intelligence model of teaching to stimulate a child's natural curiosity and desire to learn. Children explore The Bible as they learn in various ways such as storytelling, music, art, cooking, drama and many other creative experiences. The JOURNEYS program is for children ages preschool-5th grade. All children are welcomed to participate in the Journeys program. JOURNEYS is held each Sunday morning, 9:30 - 10:30 AM, in St. Paul's education wing.

Vacation Bible School St. Paul holds an annual summer-time Vacation Bible School that welcomes all children from Barrington and the surrounding communities to a week of learning about God, fellowship and fun! Kids spend the week learning Bible stories through story-telling, crafting, science, mission projects and games.

St. Paul holds Camp Christmas, a morning of learning about the birth of Jesus, each year on one Saturday morning of December. All kids from Barrington and the surrounding area are welcomed. This morning of fun always includes the telling of the Nativity story, cookie baking, crafting and games.


Nursery Fully-staffed Nursery Care is provided each Sunday for infants and toddlers. The bright spacious nursery has a variety of age-appropriate toys, and is stocked with "diaper-bag" extras.
