"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
We invite you to join us for Sunday School each and every Sunday morning at 9:30am.
Children's Classes - Preschool-5th Grade
Our younger children's classes meet by age level (Non-readers: Preschool through 1st grade. Readers: 2nd through 5th grade.) Each class time includes a Bible story and activities such as games, object lessons, music, videos, and/or crafts that reinforce the Bible Lesson. The kids could be at the table, under the table, sitting in a circle on the floor, or running from here to there. Sometimes all in the same morning! The kids are also given a take-home extension to the lesson so parents can get involved and bring the classroom learning home. The kids are thriving and the teachers are excited!
"Dig In (curriculum from Group Publishing) creates experiences where kids make discoveries, helping them to take ownership of their faith. Simply being TOLD to believe something does not result in a strong and sustaining faith." (Description taken from https://www.group.com/category/ministry-resources/childrens-ministry/sunday-school/dig-in.do)
The teachers for the Children's classes are Jamie Bish, Jodie Parson, Sammie Beachem, and Meagan Aiken.
Tween/Teen Class - 6th-12th Grade
All students in middle school or high school are invited to attend our Tween/Teen Discussion Group during the Sunday School time. In this class, the kids "drive the bus." It is a safe space to share; for difficult questions to be asked and discussed. We want our teens and tweens to feel that they are heard and what they have to say is important.
In the past year, the students wanted to discuss what the Bible teaches about bullying, Deborah, Samson, handling anger, contentment, integrity, called to be different, favorite Psalms, and why did Jesus have to die?. Other activities included prayer journals, leading a children's lesson, Bible drills, writing Thankful Thoughts, and they explored The Last Supper and Messiah's Birth paintings.
The teachers for the Tween/Teen class are Corrie Nye and Sue Moore.
The adult class is a wonderful opportunity to share with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ our questions and thoughts about scripture. The class atmosphere is friendly and casual. If you do not feel like speaking out loud, that is perfectly fine. Just listening to the discussion is still a great way to learn more, and with such an amazing God, there is always more to learn. We hope you will attend the class as often as you can.
For the rest of the winter, the adults are studying Fear of the Other, No Fear in Love by William H. Willimon.
"There is a distinctively Christian way to engage the so-called 'outsider' and 'stranger.' Tolerate one another. Wait. Isn't that supposed to be love one another? It's one thing to genuinely love people who are more or less the same as we are, but what about those who are not only strangers, but are people who live completely different lives? Reliable spiritual guide Will Willimon invites you to look more closely at the Gospel's command to love - because to genuinely love those considered to be 'Other,' or outside the mainstream Christian culture, may be the hardest thing for people of faith to do."

The teacher for the Adult class is Brian Lasko.
