During the Covid-19 Pandemic, some of our activities and events have continued virtually and some have been on-hold as we wait, with hope,  for better days. Please see the notes in blue for up-to-date information. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN

meets during worship, September through May. Children attend the opening of the worship service before being dismissed to their classrooms after ‘Children’s Time’ during the service. In the classrooms, that topic is enhanced with a variety of activities. There is no Sunday School on the first Sunday of every month when we celebrate Communion so families can worship together. The combined Sunday School presents a Christmas pageant during worship in December and the Passion drama on Palm Sunday.

FALL 2021: Sunday School has resumed! Let the little children come! Sunday School is currently meeting in the Upper Room to allow the children to safely distance themselves. Also, everyone is wearing masks when indoors. 

 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FOR ADULTS

is available most Sunday mornings at 9:15 AM during the school year. Check with the office (314.631.8930 or office@edenucc.org) to verify current availability. Both a Bible study class and a book discussion group meet at this time. 

FALL 2021: Zoom Bible Study every Thursday in October. Click here to see the flyer. 

YOUTH GROUP

meets during worship on the 3rd Sunday of the month (September through May). Our Youth Group is composed of middle-school and high-school-aged young people. The group plans special projects and social activities for its members and for the congregation. Additionally, they raise money for and are engaged in mission projects and trips.
