Children and Families

Offering a creative and nurturing place for families to come and worship together is of the greatest importance at Amherst Community Church.  Each week our young people begin worship with the congregation, and then after a “Time With Our Children”, led by our Pastor and/or Director of Christian Education, children leave for Sunday School.  Other offerings during the year have included Vacation Bible Camp during the summer as well as “Fig Leaf” weekday evenings to share a meal and have fun.

Amherst Community Church places great importance on education in all seasons of life, but in particular for the children. Therefore, we have a long history of employing highly educated and dedicated staff. We have had only three Christian Education Directors in the last 20 years. The current Director of Christian Education is a certified New York State teacher with over twenty years of teaching experience, and has filled the position for eight years.
