Sunday School

On Summer Break, will resume September 11th with an outside (weather permitting) play day and meet and greet. Please fill out this Google survey if you plan to come to aide in planning and provide contact information.

Sunday School classes are typically held from 9:45 until 10:45 on Sunday mornings for children three years old and older. We want to build a strong faith foundation for children, bringing them to a better understanding of God and what God calls them to be and do. Continue to grow with God at home using some of our sample self-paced topics below from the virtual school year.

 

School Year 2022-2023, Beginning September 11th

This fall we will be doing as in-person large/small group classroom study, which means kids 3+ will all start in the sanctuary together for music and activities and then break out by age group into smaller classes for more learning. Our goal is to engage all ages with songs, crafts, stories, and more! If the older children want to, we have opportunities for them to help lead the younger kids.  Learning by leading is a great way for the kids to gain confidence leading, public speaking, and communicating clearly.

We will be using larger spaces in the church when available: the sanctuary for songs, the social hall for crafts/experiments, and the outside pavilion (whether and lesson permitting, so always dress to be outside!).

Events and Classroom Crafts

Whether in-person or virtual, our goal is to engage the children and teach them about God’s love. Throughout social distancing, we created weekly lessons and take-home packets to deliver to our families. Families could continue to hear God’s word either on their own at home or during our virtual classes.

In addition to Sunday School, we also typically have events throughout the year including Easter egg hunts, Trick or Treating in the Social Hall, and the Christmas play, in partnership with our drama club.

Check out our Event Page for upcoming and past event information.
