Portland Bible Church
Sunday School Program for Kids
We use a series of children’s books published by R.B. Thieme Jr. Tapes and Publications in Houston, Texas. For a copy of the curriculums and lesson plans, please visit the members only section fo the PBC website. Our goal is to make learning God’s Word a positive experience.
Infants thru two years of age
You are welcome with your infant/toddler in the auditorium if your child is not disruptive or distracting to others listening to the message. However, given that infants and toddlers are generally wiggly and noisy, we have an area for parents to listen with their infant/toddler. Please ask for assistance. As our church grows we hope to provide nursery services for parents.
Kids age 3 thru 1st grade (non-readers)
This class is catered to young children where we learn songs, memorize verses, do crafts, learn bible stories and simple bible concepts. Class begins at 10:00 and continues until the break. Please have your children arrive on time and have them use the restroom prior to class. We can only take toilet trained children.
Kids 2nd grade thru middle school
We learn lessons from scripture, application of the lesson and memory verses. The teacher uses worksheets, a felt board, a white board and fun interactive methods to learn God’s word. Reading and writing are a prerequisite for this class. Class begins right after worship. And continues until the break. Middle school kids are also welcome to stay in the auditorium.
Post-Break Kids’ Activities
Every Sunday after the break we have either a biblical movie or singing instruction for kids age 3 on up. Occasionally on nice days, the teacher may allow the kids to play on the pavement in the back of the facility.
Given today’s environment, and for the mutual protection of teacher and student, we do not allow male teachers. If you have additional questions or have an interest in teaching, please contact the Deacon of Sunday School, Dave Davis 503-695-3422.
