"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 at 9:30am Sunday mornings. We have classes for all ages.
Children's Sunday School class
PreK - 5th grade
(in the basement classrooms)
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 Sunday morning Children's class are Jamie Bish, Sammie Beachem, and Meagan Aiken.
Tween/Teen's Sunday School class
6th - 12th grade
(in the upper room)
All students in middle school or high school are invited to attend our Tween/Teen Discussion Group. 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.
Beginning Sunday, September 18, 2022, the group will continue with The Lies We Tell Ourselves.
In the past, 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 Sunday morning Tween/Teen class are Sue Moore and Corrie Nye.
Adult Sunday School class
(in the sanctuary)
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.
3:16 - The Numbers of Hope beginning Sunday, April 16.
In 3:16, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado encourages us to study closely the "Hope Diamond of the Bible": John 3:16.
Max says of his favorite verse, "Every time I recall these words, they are fresh and as stunning as my first encounter with them. The mind-bending awareness of God's limitless love, his incalculable sacrifice, and the priceless teaching at the core. How can we not review it again and again? I want this generation, and all who come after, to look closely at the key promise of God and choose the gift beyond all gifts."
Throughout this updated and expanded edition of 3:16, Max will invite you to: Stand in awe of how deep, wide, long, and high God's love is for you, Understand more fully the living hope you have through Jesus' death and resurrection, and Rest in the assurance that salvation is a gift from God, not something you can earn.
If you know nothing of the Bible, start here. John 3:16 invites you to know God's love deeply and intimately. And once you accept God's love, your life will never be the same. If you know everything in the Bible, return here. Let John 3:16 become the banner of your life, so much so that the message of God's unending and unbending love overflows from you to others.
The teacher for the Sunday morning Adult class Brian Lasko.
