Youth Education


I’m very pleased to welcome you to the Onondaga Hill Presbyterian Church. My name is Sarah Buckshot and I’m the youth educator of our Sunday School and Christian Education programs at the church. I have been with the church since July 2011 and I’m very excited to tell you about the programs that we have available.

Every Sunday during the school year we offer Sunday School classes for youth who are preschool to senior year in high school. We also offer an adult studies class at the same time. The Sunday School classes meet at 10:15 a.m. after services. We offer two different classrooms – a preschool class for children 3 years old to kindergarten and a “One Big Sunday School” class for all remaining students. We will add classes as the need arises. In 2024-2025, we will offer a Confirmation Class. In our classes, children will learn about the teachings of Jesus Christ, worship, take part in an array of activities and learn about mission work and giving back.

I would love to welcome your family to visit our church and visit a class. Also feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or comments.

My email is and my phone number is 315-877-8271.

Mark 10:14 — “Let the little children come to me…”

The preschool and kindergarten classroom is known as the Worship Center. This classroom is where children will begin to develop a basic foundation for Bible study and will learn the stories of Jesus Christ in creative and innovative ways.

This classroom may also be a child’s first experience with worship. During several months of the year children will sing with one of our praise team members and learn songs for two very important concerts. The students will begin learning Christmas songs in November and will perform them in service near Christmas. The children will also learn other worship and praise songs that will performed during a special service called Celebration Sunday, a service in May that is run 100 percent by Sunday School students.

During the school year the Worship Center students will also learn about giving back and helping others during our mission projects.

The Worship Center’s classroom teacher are Lou Ann Black and Tara Buckman. Lou Ann has been a teacher for more than 20 years
