Confirmation

Confirmation is the process by which young people are given the opportunity to fully join the community of faith. With a team of teachers and paired with mentors, confirmands learn more about our congregation and denomination, the confessions of the church, church organization and polity, Bible study, and experiential learning relating to faith practices. The class also participates in a weekend or week-long retreat or pilgrimage. We anticipate our next confirmation class beginning in 2021.

Children in Worship

We are currently worshipping virtually, meeting at 10 a.m. every Sunday via Zoom. Families are sent coloring sheets in advance of each Sunday and children are warmly welcomed into worship, which includes a special time with children.

Nursery

When we re-open our church building, we look forward to welcoming infants and toddlers back to our nursery, staffed by trained, certified professional caregivers each Sunday from 8:30 a.m.- 12:45 p.m.

Child Protection Policy

Since 2003, the Session of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church has had in place a policy to ensure the safety of the children under our care.
