Children's Programs

More than just Sunday School!

Children are important at Geneva! 

We have a desire for our every kid to know some essential  truths that will stick with them for life.  


Family Fun at VBSWhat every child should know when they start Kindergarten:

–  God made me, everyone and everything.

–  God loves me and wants me to share with others.

–   Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Family Fun at Geneva Presbyterian ChurchWhat every child should know when they start middle school:

  1. The story of the Bible is that God loves me no matter what.
  2. Jesus is trustworthy, so I can trust God.
  3. God celebrates when I make wise choices.
  4. The best way to live is treat others the way I want to be treated.
  5. God forgives my sins.  Jesus died on the cross to take my sins away.  I should forgive others.

We help children discover those in each of the opportunities described below:

Sunday School For Pre-Kindergarten through high school every Sunday from 9 – 10 am in the Fellowship Hall.

Wednesdays – KIDS KLUB  is open to all children thru 5th grade. During the school year we meet each Wednesday evening from 7 – 8 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  New activities are planned each month. Past years we did Trunk or Treat, a scavenger hunt for families in need is scheduled at Thanksgiving, participated in the Angel Tree, a special treat is planned for Advent Wednesday, and our annual Talent Show.  To be part of this exciting group contact contact Teri Batchelor in the church office at 287-4865 or email  Come and bring a friend!

Mom's Morning Out Leader

Hello I am Carri and I am excited to be joining the Geneva Presbyterian Preschool!!  I will be working with the two year olds.  This will be my fourth year teaching.  My journey to teaching started by becoming a substitute teacher in 2015.  I have previously worked in other MMO and Mom2Mom programs. I look forward to meeting your children and cannot wait to help them learn and grow.  I also love to do lots of crafts and hands on activities. 

 I am a graduate of Florida State University and our family enjoys going to Tallahassee as often as we can for football games.  I am originally from Illinois but grew up in Vero Beach, Fl.  My husband and I have lived in Atlanta,Ga and Winston-Salem, NC.  We have been in St Augustine for 14 years now and have a son and a daughter who are entering 9th and 6th grade.

Here are our VBS themes for the last 19 years… though we can go back 30 years, if you like! It’s a strong and deeply loved tradition at Geneva Presbyterian Church.

Usually, we have between 50 – 95 children participating and  roughly 70 volunteers from our congregation which include youth and adult leaders to keep us all on track!  It is a joyful week for all.
