We believe that even young children can understand and participate in worship. Children's Sunday School meets during the 9:30 service. During the 11:10 service, children aged 4 through Grade 3 sit with their parents until the offering; those that do not wish to stay for the sermon then proceed to Children's Church. Here, in a child-friendly environment, children meet and worship God through songs, prayer and Bible stories. They are encouraged to have their own experience where faith can be nurtured and where they are prepared to join in the full life of the Stone Hill Church of Princeton congregation.

Middle School Girls -After a year of learning how to study the Bible, the Middle School girls now have a chance to use these lessons as they read and discuss the gospel of Luke. This gospel, with its beloved parables and the most detail about women in the life of Christ, is a great forum for observing carefully and applying wisely. Come and share prayer and ideas, art and laughter.
Middle School Boys - Christ's People in the book of Acts
Senior High: Jesus is the central focus and figure of the Bible. The Bible predicts His coming thousands of years before His birth, tells of His life and ministry, recounts His death, details His burial, announces His triumphant resurrection, and shows the remarkable changes in the lives of His followers. Knowing Jesus is the beginning and the end of the Christian faith. Through this yearlong study, your students will come face to face with Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
