Christian Education


Nursery care is provided for children ages infant through 3 years old. Children can be dropped off before church starts and picked up after the church service ends. While in the nursery, children read book, play games, and do crafts.

Sunday School

Sunday school is offered to children in pre-K through grade 8 during the school year. In the summer months children age 4 through 2nd grade participate in Sunday school while children aged 3rd grade through 12 grade participate in youth choir and intergenerational church services.

Adult Christian Education

Adult Christian Education at Standish Congregational Church focuses on discipleship. faith formation, and spiritual growth.  We offer a Spiritual Enrichment Bible Study on the first and third Tuesday mornings of each month, September-May.  In this group we pray for local joys and concerns, read a Psalm together, read aloud a Bible passage that will be featured in the following Sunday service, and discuss the passage using the Lectio Divina method.  Each year we have a Lenten Discussion series after church for five or six Sundays during Lent.  Most years we have book discussions, often reading several books, or portions of a book, as a unit in relation to a topic of interest.
