“Let the little children come to me… for to such belongs the kingdom of God”

Mark 10:14


At Carolina Beach Presbyterian Church, we delight in the presence of children at worship. We welcome babies, children, and nursing mothers, and we offer the following opportunities for children to grow in faith.

Sunday School

Sunday Education Hour for Children and Youth meets weekly at 9:45 a.m. in the education wing classrooms that are alongside the fellowship hall. There are five classes, each with focused, age-appropriate curriculum.

  • Pre-K: Wee Believe 
  • K-2: Growing in Grace and Gratitude (PCUSA)
  • 3-5: Growing in Grace and Gratitude (PCUSA)
  • 6-8: The Thoughtful Christian and "Middle School Talk Sheets"
  • 9-12: The Thoughtful Christian and Nooma Video Series

Children’s Worship

Children’s Worship is a special worship experience for young children. At the 11 a.m. service, children 4-7 begin worship in the sanctuary with their parents. After the Passing of the Peace, children come forward for the children’s sermon and then are led to a classroom for Children’s Church. There they sing, pray, listen to a special Bible story told with beautiful wooden figures, and respond with art and other activities. We offer Children’s Worship at the 11 a.m. Sunday service only.

On fifth Sundays of the month and on a few special occasions, we have one Sunday worship service at 9:30 a.m. On those Sundays there is no Children’s Church time so kids are invited to stay in worship or attend the nursery for the remainder of the service.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer, children 4 years old through 5th grade gather to learn about God through a variety of crafts, puppets, skits, music, Bible study, and service projects at Vacation Bible School. The Rising Women’s Circle of Presbyterian Women lead the congregation in hosting this event for our children and any neighbors, visitors, and friends from the surrounding community. There are always lots of opportunities to participate as a volunteer and we have a great time!
