Sunday Mornings

Educational Opportunities

We start the Sunday school hour with a lively gathering time where we sing, share and hear the lesson for the hour. We follow a rotation curriculum that teaches one major Bible story 
at a time by rotating classes through a variety 
of creative workshops. This way of learning allows the children to explore their interests and talents. All the volunteers leading the classes model the accepting love of Christ as children learn and 
play together.

Sunday School Pre K-Fifth Grade 9:45-10:45 am Room 201


Sundays, September–May, 11 am, Sanctuary

Children are welcome to stay with their parents during the entire service however we do offer Sunday School for children ages 4 through 5th grade immediately following the children's sermon during the 11 am service. Each week's lesson coincides with the day's scripture reading and is presented through age appropriate books, songs, arts & crafts, and free play allowing children to explore their interests and talents. 

  • Children may be picked up at 12:15 pm after the service on the second floor, education wing.
