Sunday School

During the school year September through May, Sunday school meets during the 10am worship service.

This year Children’s Chapel and Lectionary Lessons will be combined for an enriching experience for children in Pre school through 5th grade. Each Sunday we will focus on one of the readings to bring understanding of our faith, faith traits, and faith in action.

Children will begin in church during Summer and on special Sundays throughout the school year. The children will follow their leaders to the Sunday School Building after the gospel. The lesson will be based on the lectionary readings. Picture books will be chosen to reinforce the lesson in a way that applies to their lives and makes them wonder about God in the world. There will also be time to play games, do crafts and hang-out in a safe supervised environment.
