Christian Education

Christian Education is an important part in the life of Tustin Presbyterian Church. We offer educational opportunities for both the young and the not so young. For the very young children, nursery and toddler care is available from experienced caregivers during most activities so that parents of young children can participate. Each Sunday the children attend the first portion of the worship service and then meet at the front of the church for a Children’s Moment with the pastor. They then are invited to attend Sunday School. The curriculum used in the Sunday School for the children is called Growing in Grace and Gratitude. The Sunday School curriculum for the youth is Feasting on the Word. Both of these curricula are published by the PC(USA). During the school year, TPC has a midweek afternoon program known as REMIX for children and youth. Children and youth from the congregation and the surrounding community participate in Bible study, choir, handbell choir, recreation, and an evening meal. A number of adults from the congregation support this program by serving as teachers, recreation leaders, choir helpers, cooks, and dinner table parents. For the adults, adult education classes are normally scheduled following the worship service during the 11:00 a.m. hour. The classes address a wide variety of thought-provoking topics and vary in length from a single session to as much as six to eight weeks. This enables people to attend classes that are of particular interest to them and as their schedules allow. Classes are also occasionally scheduled at other times during the week for special topics. There are also opportunities for men and women to participate in small groups that meet on a regular basis.
