Sunday School

"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."

Tween/Teen's Sunday School class
6th - 12th grade
(in the balcony)

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 19, 2021, the group will begin looking at Bullying and the Bible. Our young people will be able to build the Biblical foundation they need not to fall victim to bullying or engage in bullying behavior in the future.

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.

One September 19, 2021 the adults will begin studying You Are Never Alone by Max Lucado.

"When life feels depleted, does God care? I'm facing an onslaught of challenges, will God help? When life grows dark and stormy, does God notice? I'm facing the fear of death, will God help me? The answer in the life-giving miracles in the Gospel of John is a resounding yes. In You Are Never Alone, Max will help you:
   •    Realize that Jesus is walking with you and lifting you out of your storms,
   •    Dwell in the grace of the cross, the miracle of the empty tomb, and the assurance of restoration power,
   •    Believe that God is your ever-present source of help, and
   •    Recognize that you are never without hope or strength because you are never, ever, alone.
Today, take courage that you are stronger than you think because God is nearer than you know." (Review taken from https://www.amazon.com/You-Are-Never-Alone-Presence/dp/1400217342)

The teacher for the Sunday morning Adult class is Brian Lasko.



SON SEEKERS

Son Seekers is NOT meeting right now. Check back for the new start date.

We are excited about the opportunity to meet together. We miss the time to be more active, the fun games, the cool experiments, the craft projects, the chance to ask questions, and the opportunity to learn more about our awesome God together. We want to gather together on Wednesday evenings for "Sunday School". Classes for all ages (pre-school through adults) will meet to continue with the great curriculum we started last year. Each group will have its own area to meet, and we will meet outside when the weather permits. Continue reading below for more information about each age group.

Son Seekers Adult Class

Are you looking for a firmer foundation for your faith? Or perhaps you have an interest in the history of faith. At Son Seekers the adults will be looking at the Shorter Catechism of the Westminster Confession of Faith. This isn't as scary as this formal title sounds. The Westminster Confession is an explanation of the basic principles or standard of doctrine for Christians. These standards, written in the 1600s, have stood the test of time, and they are the standard of faith at Mountville.

The Shorter Catechism is a way of teaching the basics of scripture through a series of questions and answers. The questions cover the topics of God the Creator, sin, Christ the Redeemer, the Ten Commandments, Baptism & Holy Communion, and the Lord's Prayer. The answers are backed up with Bible references which are the infallible words of God and our highest authority.

The teacher for the Son Seekers Adult class is Sue Moore.
