Sunday School

Sunday School

It’s a big part of our youth program. We believe that Christian Education is essential in the lives of our children. To that end, learning how God intends for us to live our lives gives direction and purpose to children as they grow. A strong faith and knowledge of the Bible will help children make healthy choices in their lives.

Schedule

Our formal Sunday School program runs from early September through early June, except for the Nursery which is year round. Summer Children’s Church and Vacation Bible School take place only during the summer.

  • Sunday School: During the 10:30 a.m. worship service, Sunday School for 2-year olds up through 6th grade takes place . Children first attend the service with their family. So, after the “Children’s Time” they leave for their Sunday School classrooms. Parents should pick up their children from their classroom at 11:45 a.m.
  • 7th/8th Grade Sunday School & Confirmation Class: From 9:30 to 10:20 a.m. in rooms 107 and 108, Sunday School for 7th and 8th graders meets . The curriculum is geared toward preparation for confirmation at the end of 8th grade. Most notably, confirmation is a personal choice.
