Third Presbyterian Church

Jesus first, others second, we're Third!

Here at Third we are very active in our children and youth programming. We believe that the key to quality, beneficial, and worthwhile Christian Education is built on a solid foundation of faith and a commitment to the Lord.

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

Proverbs 22:6 KJV

 

    

 

What we offer at Third is a vast range of programming and activities to engage our children and youth in a passionate relationship with the Lord. 

 

In addition to Sunday School at 10:00 a.m, we have a lot of children programs throughout the year.

 

 

 

Youth Club (Pre K - 5th Grade) (Fall and Spring)

Youth Club is run twice a year (Fall and Spring) for children Pre K through 5th Grade. They meet on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m. Children enjoy music, games, a Bible lesson, and craft, every Sunday. During the Christmas season, the Youth Club partners with the older youth of the Jr./Sr. Crosswalk to perform a musical.
