Christian Education

The ministry of Christian education is essential to the life of the Union Church of Cupertino congregation. Through Christian education, we invite people and our community of faith to be transformed as they are inspired to:
 
>Know and experience God through Jesus Christ
>Claim and live God’s promises
>Grow and serve as Christian disciples
 

Sunday School

“Loving God, who knows us better than we know ourselves…and loves us with steadfast love… lead us this day to know you better. Surprise us with new insights into your activity in the world, so that our students may know you as a God who is involved in the world – and in their world. Amen.
 
Children, youth, and their families are invited to join with our entire congregation for the beginning of our service of worship at 10am Sunday morning. A “Children’s Moment” invites them forward for a special time with the pastor, the Rev. Mark Brady or Sunday School Superintendent, Barbara Murray. Following this time together, the children join their Sunday School teachers to go to their specific classes. Once in a class, we strive to live out our purpose together to grow in God’s grace.
 
We provide the following classes:
 
>Pre-K/Kindergarten – Montgomery Hall
>Grades 1-2 – Montgomery Hall
>Grades 3-4/5 – Ivan Hall
>Grades 6-7/8 – Montgomery Hall
>Grades 9-12 – Fireside Room
 
Volunteer helpers are always welcome. Come and Join the Team! If you think you might be interested or want more information please contact the Church Office or the Christian Education Committee.

Youth Choir

Joyful Noise! is our choir for youth and is directed by Mindy Dickens. It’s open to all young singers ages 3 through 14. Songs are learned largely by rote and rehearsals include play, solfeggio, rhythm instruments, and basic ensemble etiquette. Ability to read music is not required to participate in choir. Membership in church is also not required. Rehearsals are during Sunday School on the first Sunday of the month and after church on other Sundays. If you are thinking about joining or have any questions, please talk with Mindy or email her at note@MindyMusic.com.
