Sunday School Youth Programs

How do you get your kids involved? It’s easy!! Come to Church Sunday morning at 9:30. We know your lives are busy. That’s why we’ve designed our Church School program so that kids are welcome to come when you’re available.

Sunday School is offered on the second, third and fourth Sundays of the month. Sunday School begins during worship, and after the children’s message, children are led to their classrooms to share together in fun, fellowship and faith, with the help of trained presenters and shepherds.

Infants & Toddlers

Infants and toddlers are welcome in the Nursery located next to the Church Office staffed by our Nursery Coordinator and members of our church. The room is equipped with age appropriate toys and equipment. Care is available for infants and toddlers during Sunday worship. Parents must complete a sign-in sheet.

Care is often provided for young children during weekday evening classes and other church activities. Call the church office in advance to ensure availability.

Preschool through 5th Grade

Our ‘rotation’ approach for children in Preschool through 7th grades means that we spend more than one Sunday on one Bible Story and we teach that same Bible story in different ways! That means our children learn the Bible Story through the art center one week, through games the next, and through cooking in the kitchen! Whether your child is there for all weeks of the story, or just one, they’ll encounter a fun way to learn about the Bible and the basics of our faith that are so important for every child to know.

Middle School Youth

Our 6th and 7th graders have their own Sunday School class – and a chance to really dive into ideas and great discussion together! The Grade 6-7 class has a wonderful new curriculum called Connect. Families will be given the opportunity to purchase a Connect Bible for their child to personalize and bring to class and write in throughout the year.

Youth in 8th grade or higher are invited to participate in our mentor-based confirmation program.  Youth partner with a church member to look at questions like, “Why would anyone participate in religion?”  “Why Jesus?”  At the end of the process each confirmand writes a brief statement of faith.  Confirmation is required for anyone wanting to join the church as a youth, although joining the church is not the goal of confirmation.  The goal is to be able to answer, “What do I believe and what difference does it make in my life?”

Serve with us!

Teens and adults are encouraged to join the fun as teachers and assistants. If you feel led to become a lesson Presenter (teacher) or Shepherd (assistant), we encourage you to fill out an application.
