CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL
2-year-olds (room 9 in the Parish Hall): Our main objective with children this age is that they come to know that the church is a safe and loving environment and that God loves them. With provided lessons, music, and storybooks, they can thrive in Sunday School. The church gives a Bible to each child on Promotion Sunday. They will use this Bible in Sunday School to support the lessons they learn.
2s & 3s meet in Room 7 in the bottom floor of the Parish Hall.
Pre-K (4s) & Kindergarten meet in Room 213 in the Education Building.
1st & 2nd Grades meet in room 207 in the Education Building.
3rd & 4th Grades meet in room 210 in the Education Building.
5th & 6th Grades meet in room 209 in the Education Building.
Following Confirmation Sunday, 6th Grade will meet in the Youth Lounge.
Pre-K thru 2nd grade: These children meet for a combined 10-minute praise & worship assembly in the Chapel at the end of Sunday School.
YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday Mornings 9:45-10:40am | UTH Lounge | Grades 6-12
Sunday School is a great opportunity to start your week with your church family learning about how to live a life that follows Jesus. We have a class for Middle School students and a class for High School students. 6th graders start out meeting with the 5th graders in August until they are confirmed on Confirmation Sunday in January. At that time they begin meeting with the 7th & 8th graders in the Youth Lounge. There are two veteran teachers that lead the classes with phenomenal lessons and conversations.
