Infants, Children and Youth
The Nursery at DMPC is open during Sunday School and worship for children ages infant – 3 years old. Our nursery is staffed by trained staff and volunteers who are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for your small child.
Children & Youth Sunday School
All children are welcome to join our Sunday morning education classes for ages kindergarten through 12th grade. God’s word comes alive through engaging lessons and experiences that nurture further understanding of our faith.
Through our curriculum, children experience the wonder of God’s word to us. Important biblical themes are integrated into study and worship through scripture and spiritually-enhanced experiences, appropriate for each grade level.
Sunday School classes meet each Sunday at 9:45 am. Classes for children and youth meet upstairs on the second floor of the educational building. Immediately following class, children are invited to join their families for the worship service at 11 am.

After School Program
The After-School Program of DMPC allows a safe and positive environment for elementary students grades K-5 to be dropped off by a school bus, and do homework, have tutoring, play games, do crafts and have fun! This aspect of the church’s ministry is to reach out to working parents and provide a valuable ministry at a low cost. Please see the After-School web page for more information!
Every year, DMPC sponsors Vacation Bible School to promote fun, fellowship, and faith-foundations for children in grades K – 5 completed).
Summer Camps and Conferences for Children and Youth
DMPC believes in the value of allowing children and youth to be nurtured in the faith through camps and conferences. Elementary students are encouraged to attend Camp Bluestone, a ministry of the Presbytery of West Virginia, while Middle School and High School Students participate in a week-long mission project.
DMPC will also be encouraging high-schoolers and college-age young adults to attend the Trinity Youth Conference. TYC is an annual event organized by the Friends of Trinity Youth Conference, and is a Mission Network of the Synod of the Trinity, which is a part of the PC(USA).
