Join us for our Fellowship Breakfast in the Barr Center Gym at 9:00 am and regular Sunday school classes at 9:30 am, all beginning Sunday, September 9.
3k and 4k
Three and four year-olds will explore Bible stories throughout the year and learn about prayer and giving thanks to God, all in an engaging environment that mixes play and simple storytelling. This class will help lay the foundation for an early understanding of God's love for them and the thread of this love throughout the Old and New Testaments.
5k through 2nd Grade; 3rd through 5th Grade
Students in elementary school will dig into year two of the Holy Moly! curriculum, which combines short and simple videos of Old and New Testament stories with a re-telling of the story in book form. Sunday School leaders will help connect these Bible stories to children’s everyday lives through engaging questions and a craft or activity. Each week, the early elementary and older elementary children will start by gathering together in Room 215 for the video portion, splitting up afterward into separate classrooms
(5k-2nd and 3rd-5th) for age-appropriate activities and discussion time.
Middle School and High School
Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers will meet in two different classrooms in the upstairs Sunday School Hall each week for a time of fellowship, food and discussion based on scripture or a chosen theme series. They will engage in discussion, connecting God’s word to their lives and listening to occasional guest speakers talk about their faith stories. In the Spring, high school juniors and seniors may participate in Confirmation class during the Sunday School hour.
