Young people are an important aspect of every family, and it is no different at Philo Road. We offer classes on Sunday morning, as well as a children's library and various events throughout the year to help our young people grow in the Lord. We also have a very active teen program, with classes and special programs aimed at the special needs that teens face today.
The children's educational program organizes Bible classes for children from age 6 weeks through 6th grade. The different age groups are: Cradle Roll (6 weeks to 2 years); 2 - 3 years, Pre-Kindergarten - Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th grade, 5th and 6th grade.
Our children's library (room 18) is entirely independent of the adult library, and offers over 1,000 books and videos for the children. Open after most services, the library is used intensively by the children who read thousands of pages each year. The children's library is included in the church budget but is a popular target of special donations.
Throughout the year, classes are provided for 7th -12th grade and the curriculum is determined by the specific needs of the students. Summer brings an opportunity to meet with other area churches in central Illinois at the weekly Summer Youth Series (SYS) where junior high and high school students gather to sing, fellowship, and grow in Christ.
