Children’s Sunday School

Nursery

Children ages 0 – 2 are welcome to come down to our nursery. Young children will spend time in a safe secure environment with paid, trained nursery workers. All workers have had thorough background checks and have been trained on “Safe Sanctuary” protocols. The nursery is open 9:30 am – noon on Sundays  and during certain events.

 

Elementary

Children ages 3 – 2nd grade are invited into our elementary classroom where a professional educator and some wonderful volunteers will lead them in learning Bible stories, exploring their feelings, prayer and meditation, crafts and snacks.  All this happens in a classroom that has been constructed to look like a 1st century home in Jerusalem! The elementary class meets at 9:30 am on Sundays in room 105.

 

Way of the Child

The Way of the Child helps children, grades 3 – 5, develop an intimate, personal relationship with God, providing an opportunity for them to experience and practice spiritual disciplines that can nurture that relationship for a lifetime. The class meets at 9:30 am on Sundays in room 104.

 

 

Middle School

The Middle High Sunday School class, grades 6 -8, explores the interconnection of personal faith, cooperative community and eternal life questions. In an intentionally open format, kids are encouraged to challenge their assumptions and expectations regarding religion.

Is there baseball in heaven? If not, what IS the nature of heaven? Will my pets be there? Why do bad things happen to the innocent? Isn’t money the root of all evil? Does God really care about the outcome of football games? Does God intercede in my life when I pray? Would Jesus be a Democrat or a Republican? How would you know?

Finding guidance in both Jesus’s life and the concept of soul freedom, we use a bible based approach and historical context to seek answers to those very questions. Collective service projects add some fun to the mix, as well as the key elements of discernment and tangible, productive action as a group to the class. The class meets at 9:30 am on Sundays in room 306.

High School

Youth, grades 9 -12, gather together during the Sunday School hour with a dedicated adult volunteer to share their life together.  They talk and share stories from their week.  They address the questions of faith and life that develop in their life. The high school class meets at 9:30 am in room 306.
