All women of the church and community are invited to join varied topics from the Bible. Come and join the discussion. Stairs a problem? We will be using the elevator. Busy Saturday? We get out early enough to meet friends and family for brunch.
CLASSES FOR CHILDREN & YOUTH beginning again January 7th:
PreK-K Class – Room 213 Teachers: Lauri Buly, Debbie Krawchyk & Paige Baierl
Our youngest class will continue to use The Story for Little Ones bringing the message of God’s great love through attractive illustrations and simple text. Throughout the year, we build an overview of God’s story using 31 pivotal Bible stories.
Grades 1-3 – Room 216 Teachers: Bev Shelenberger & Jennifer Green
Deep Blue: Learn & Serve! Our kids will learn about God and what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Students will engage in Bible stories, science experiments, arts & crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games with the goal of helping children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus today.
Grades 4-6 – Room 118 Teachers: David & Stephany Bruckner
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. This class listens to the “radio theatre” audio version of this classic story and engages in discussion and expression together.
Grades 7-8 – Room 309 Teaching Team: Susan Karson & Diane Camlin
Over the next fourteen weeks, this class will investigate the answer to the question, “What is our salvation for?” For the Life of the World is a quirky, DVD-driven study about God’s plan for all areas of our lives, including family, work, art, charity, education, government and recreation.
High School Class – Youth Room Teaching Team: Denise Scuito & Co.
This class meets in the Youth Room to talk about current topics and questions about life and faith. Not a set curriculum, the group will help determine the direction of future gatherings.
COLLEGE MINISTRY IS A LOT OF THINGS...
...it is inspiring, funky, hilarious, and weird. It is high-energy, world-changing, tear-jerking, life-altering. UKIRK is for skeptics, Christians, athesists, doubters, and wanderers. It gives students a space for worship, questions, prayers, fears, anxieties, hopes, and dreams. It reminds us -- whether or not we're in college -- that we are not alone, that we are loved, and that we matter.
Not only will we name God's radical love for college students, we will encourage a way of life proclaiming that the Lord is at work in the world, for the world, for all of us. New Wilmington Presbyterian Church welcomes YOU, as a college student, to participate in UKIRK college ministry.

The SALT Class meets weekly in the corner of the Social Hall to discuss various topics and books. Currently, the study is based on the bookOur Only World, Ten Essays by Wendell Berry – a farmer, poet, and essayist - who for over 50 years has been America’s “eloquent advocate for the planet, for our families, and for the future of our children and ourselves.” Written over the course of the last 5 years, these essays confront “head-on the necessity of clear thinking and direct action” in the face of “the planet’s environmental problems.” All are welcome to join the conversation in the southeast corner of the social hall.
All are welcome to join in this discussion group. The Sunday class begins at 9:10am.
In addition to all the modular Sunday School offerings, we've got a number of other opportunities to engage you and your families in spiritual formation. Set aside the time for these events, because you won't want to miss the
