Due to the Switzerland-wide cancellation of in-person gatherings, we are currently unable to meet for Sunday School classes in person. Just as our worship is being offered in an online format, we are also offering corresponding children’s resources for families with Sunday School age children. Click here for resources by date.
Every Sunday from 11:00 to 11:20, there is an online Bible story time for children ages 2 to 6, with singing, praying, a Bible story and a craft idea. If you would like to join, please contact the Children's Ministry Administrator.
We will keep you updated as the situation evolves. We appreciate your patience and look forward to the return of Sunday School classes soon.
IPC Sunday School Statement of Purpose
The Sunday School program at IPC is committed to presenting God to children and families and helping them to understand and apply the truth of God's Word in attitude and service.
This is accomplished by:
- Introducing each person of the Trinity: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
- Demonstrating how to have a loving, personal relationship with God in deed, word, prayer.
- Teaching how to become a responsible and caring Christian in relationships with others.
- Modeling biblical values, participating in praise and worship, and developing social skills through class participation.
This Year's Theme: “UP, IN, OUT”
In their Sunday School classes, Junior Church, P.O.S.T. and special programs, the children of IPC will learn core values of Christian discipleship as they grow in their relationship with God (UP), strengthen their unity with other Christians (IN), and practice being the light of Christ in their communities (OUT).
Sunday School Offering
All IPC Sunday School children attending classes in the Kantonsschule are encouraged to bring an offering to Sunday School. We encourage children to bring an offering as
training to tithe and to support God’s kingdom work. The IPC Sunday School offering goes to Aids Care Thailand. Click here for more information about this ministry.

Nursery, Lambs and Sheep always begin their classes at 11:30. Love, Hope and Faith go directly to their classrooms, except for the 1st Sunday of each month, when they will attend the first part of the morning worship and hear a children's message.
John, Luke, Mark, Matthew and Paul will attend the first part of the morning worship every Sunday except for the last Sunday of the month, when they will attend Junior Church or go directly to their classrooms. Kairos has its own schedule, and the children attend the service when they don't meet for class.
