While the church has received approval to open for in-person Worship beginning on Sunday, July 5th, Sunday School will not be held until further instruction.
Children may be seated with their families. The Pastor will offer a children's message to them at the beginning of Worship, however they will stay with family in the pew rather than come up to the altar as is our usual custom.
In September we will have further discussion about the safety of starting Sunday School up again.
"Raise a child in the way they should go, and even when they are older, they will not depart from it"
Our Sunday Church School program runs 52 Sundays a year and provides a vibrant, exciting and relevant experience for each of our children to look forward to each week. The classes run from Pre-K 3 through 8th Grade and culminate with Confirmation.
What can you and your child(ren) expect?
When families arrive for 9:00 am Worship each Sunday, everyone gathers together in the Sanctuary. Following the Opening Prayer, the children are all invited to come sit on the altar for a message and time with Pastor Jim. The children are then dismissed to Sunday School as they process out of the Sanctuary to music.
All of the children gather together for a time of Worship in our Children's Church. Through music, movement, and video the boys and girls experience a relevant worship experience where they may learn a new song, and learn how to pray together in a fun and exciting way.
Following this time of children's worship, everyone then breaks into their age-appropriate classes during which we teach a lesson from the Bible about God's love and Jesus' friendship and how they belong to a church family. The children will be engaged in fun activities, art projects, and even games that all show how amazing God is in their young lives.
There is no cost for our Sunday School and all children are warmly welcomed. Donations for art supplies and other items are always greatly appreciated.
Please let us know if your child has any learning differences so that we may accommodate them and ensure that everyone feels welcomed and their unique gifts appreciated.
Our church strictly adheres to the Safe Sanctuary Policy set forth by the United Methodist Church. Each classroom has two teachers/adults present at all times.
