Sunday School is held during the 9am service and provides Christian Education for children. Creative ways are used to teach children from pre-school to high school about God and the Bible. Sunday School teachers assist children in learning the basics of our church service, singing songs, and memorizing the Lord’s Prayer and Bible verses. Each week, lessons are based on the lectionary readings for the day. One of the main thrusts of Sunday School is having fun while learning about Christianity. Children find coming to church fun as we worship God together, meet friends and enjoy the experience. Fun makes the learning enjoyable! Refreshments are provided.
