Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
The children’s ministry at Clemson Presbyterian Church serves infants-fifth graders. We want to impact our community and the world by making disciples of children who are transformed by the Gospel and learning to serve others. All instruction is grounded in the Gospel with the purpose of training up children with Biblical teaching. Our children’s ministry partners with parents by equipping and encouraging them in the Christian nurture of their children. In order to accomplish these goals, we provide our children and their families with a variety of spiritual growth opportunities in worship, service, fellowship and missions.

The Catechism and Memory Program (CAMP) includes age‐appropriate verses and catechisms for memorization during the school year.This ministry is designed for parents to teach their children the truth’s of scripture.

We love being involved in the Good News Club at Clemson Elementary School. Good News Club is a way for us to build relationships with community children and talk to them about Christ.
Each year our church sends hundreds of boxes around the world through OCC, providing gifts and the Gospel to children who have typically never received either. We encourage our children and the church at large to donate needed items throughout the year. To find out more about the ministry of OCC, visit the Samaritan’s Purse website.
Children K4 and up join their families for worship on Sunday mornings. Because our congregation is used to small children in the service, we strive to offer a gracious atmosphere for families who are training younger children to worship. We provide several tools to help parents and children. The Bread Box, located in the foyer, has an object lesson for each week’s sermon. There are also Worship bags (filled with coloring pages to go along with the sermon, a clipboard, crayons, and
books, worship training sheets) for children to borrow and return at the end of the service. We also provide a Family Room in the foyer of the Worship Center for parents with babies allowing parents to still be a part of the worship service and attend to their young ones.
