Overview of Programs
Sunday School is available to children from preschool age through 5th grade during the 9:00am and 10:35am church services during the school year. Classes are taught by teaching teams of two adults, and provide weekly lessons based on an established curriculum. During the summer (June – August), Sunday School is ONLY available at the 10:35 service.
Typically, children attend the beginning of all Worship Services with their parents. At the appropriate time during the service, the children will be called forward as indicated in the bulletin and will be escorted to their classrooms.
Infant and toddler care is also available at each Worship Service.
To guide and nurture our children in a loving environment and through prayer to develop and strengthen their relationship with God.
How do I know if there is a change to the typical Sunday School format?
If you have questions about the day’s Sunday School format, you may ask the Deacons of the Day stationed in the Narthex prior to each service or check the Announcement Monitor in the lower Narthex entry area for directions.
Where do I pick up my child(ren) after church?
Children through 5th grade will remain in their Sunday School classrooms until they are picked up by a parent, unless otherwise noted in the bulletin. If you need assistance locating your child’s classroom, you may ask any Sunday School teacher, the Deacons of the Day, or refer to the Church building map.
