Sunday School

Every Sunday, 9:30-10:30am

Our Sunday School program is offered every Sunday from 9:30-10:30am, September through May! There are classes for ages Pre-K through Adults.  All of our teachers are Safe Sanctuary approved with background checks.

Where is Sunday School?

We have several Sunday School classes located throughout our church building. Children and Youth are assigned classrooms based on current school grade.

Children in Pre-K through 4th grades begin and end Sunday School is Classroom #4, located in the main hallway of our church. Parents/Guardians will receive a check-in sticker when your child is dropped off at Classroom #4. To ensure the safety of all children in our care, parents/guardians must present this sticker when picking up your child at Classroom #4 in order for the child to be released. 

Youth in grades 5th-12th grades may go directly to their assigned classrooms located on the lower level of our church. Youth in 5th-8th grades are in the Junior High room and Youth in 9th-12th grades are in the Senior High room.

What To Expect

Children in Pre-K through 4th grades begin Sunday School by meeting together for our Sunday School Opening. During this time, our Sunday School Superintendent leads the kids in singing along to music videos and watching our weekly Bible lesson cartoon video while discussing the week’s key Bible verse and story. After the Opening, the group is split into three grade level classes for a fun activity and/or craft. Children end the morning by returning to Classroom #4 for a final group activity. Parents should drop-off and pick-up children in Classroom #4.

Junior High (5th-8th) and Senior High (9th-12th) youth meet in their respective classrooms separately. Our teachers create a fun, warm and encouraging environment where they can tackle the tough issues youth of this age may be facing. Lessons are grounded in the Scriptures while relating them to current day situations. Fun activities are also planned throughout the year. 

All of our teachers strive to create a fun, safe and comfortable space where children are able to learn and grow in their faith journey.
