  • Join us for Sunday School

    2017 Sunday School Offerings

    Youth and Children
    3K & 4K

    Preschool and kindergarten will use the Little Lambs curriculum and explore the books of the Bible starting with the Creation Story in Genesis. This class will help lay the foundation for an early understanding of God's love for each of us and the thread of this love throughout the Old and New Testaments.

    Kindergarten and 1st Grade; 2nd and 3rd Grade; 4th and 5th Grade
    Grouped by grades, students in elementary school will explore part of each Sunday’s scripture readings and connect it to their everyday lives. They will learn about Old and New Testament stories and discuss traditions of the Episcopal Church, deepening their knowledge of the Bible in an approachable and interesting way. This year, elementary students will also look at the “why’s” of worship, breaking down different parts of Sunday services and the meaning behind them.

    Middle School and High SchoolMiddle Schoolers will meet in room “356” each Sunday morning and high schoolers will meet in the neighboring room for a time of fellowship, food and scripture based and topical discussions about living out their faith in their daily lives. In the Spring, high school juniors and seniors are invited to participate in Confirmation class during the Sunday School.

    Adults
    Every Sunday at 9:30 am
    The Wired Word, Parlor

    Each week, participants are invited to engage in stimulating and thought-provoking conversation on current events in the context of relevant Bible scripture and from a Christian perspective.

    Jesus in the Old Testament, Multipurpose Room 
    This 10-week course will explore how Jesus was present throughout the Old Testament. Using the book The Lamb of God by Nancy Guthrie as a guide, this class will give you a fresh perspective on the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, and a clearer understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of scripture. 

     Monthly Offering, Second Sundays, Following the 8 am Service, Light Breakfast Served
    The Miracles of Jesus, Dining Room
    Jesus not only preached the kingdom of God in word, but he demonstrated it in power through his miraculous deeds. This unique, in-depth look at the miracles of Jesus will open your eyes to their impact on the lives he touched, what they reveal about God's heart, and their significance for us today. This study shows how each miracle reveals God’s character, the kingdom of God, and his love for you.

  • New Altar Rail Cushions

    If you haven't noticed that our altar rail cushions are not in good shape, your knees probably have. The new altar rail cushions have been designed and painted by nationally recognized artist, Linda Mote.  The cushions are based on the seven "I am" statements from John and illustrated, primarily, with scenes from our church.  They are beautiful! (We promise that the new cushion inserts will be thick and better for your knees!)

    If you would like to be a part of this project or have questions, contact Mackie O'Keefe at mackieok@gmail.com.
