Sunday School and Youth Group at Park Congregational Church

Our growing Sunday School consists of two classes plus a Youth Group class that also meets on Sunday mornings. We have three very dedicated Sunday School teachers, Lisa Lindquist for the younger children, Dee Dorsey for the older children, and Holly Proulx for the Youth Group. Linda Bogosian is the Sunday School Superintendent who gives the Children’s Message during the worship service. The children and youth begin in the worship service, hear a Children’s Message, and then depart for their classes around 10:15am. In addition to learning about the Christian faith, our Sunday School sponsors a NEADS dog, an adorable black lab puppy, Benny!

Our Youth Group are all Youth Deacons and faithfully serve our local congregation and the wider church. They participate in our own worship service as lay readers and at the Odd Fellows Nursing Home in Worcester, where Pastor Gary leads a service once a month. Several of our Sunday School children sing in a Youth Choir. Our Sunday School children and Youth Group also participate in a joint ecumenical Vacation Bible School with First Baptist Church and Wesley United Methodist Church every year which this past summer attracted over 100 children and several dozen adult volunteers. The Sunday School and Youth Group also sponsor throughout the year suppers, candy sales, and other fundraising activities, as well as go on recreational outings together with the Sunday School staff and chaperones.
