Sunday School for Children
Sunday school classes are held throughout the school year, running from Mid-September to Mid-May.
Classes are taught by a dedicated group of volunteers from the congregation.
Our Sunday school classes have lectionary-based scripture stories and lessons that match up with what children and adults hear in worship each week. It is the hope of the Christian Ed committee that this helps provide continuity and a shared experience for families to take home.
During Sunday school children hear stories, do activity worksheets, engage in crafts and games to help reinforce the stories that they are hearing.
Sunday school begins at 9 a.m., starting with younger children – 6th grade and younger – in the sanctuary practicing songs with the Children’s Choir. Classes convene at 9:20 and go until 10:15, ending 15 minutes before worship in the sanctuary begins.
Children in Worship
Children in worship have opportunities to engage in what’s happening. “Pew packs” are hung on the elevator room wall and have coloring sheets and crayons inside. Children’s bulletins are available each week for ages 3-6 and 7-11.
Additionally, a Children’s Message with the pastor is a part of weekly worship. Children are invited to come forward to engage in a conversation with the pastor about a theme related to worship for the week. “Stu-Bear” (stewardship bear) is passed and children are invited to bring a monetary contribution to offer.
Sunday School for Adults
Adult Sunday school classes run from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. throughout the school year. Prayer, bible study, and conversation fellowship are a routine part of the Adult Sunday School class. Themes and conversations shift throughout the year based on the participants present.
Adults are welcome to bring a cup of coffee along with their bible to join in this group.
