What to Expect/Sermons
Classes are available for children in three age groups: Nursery, Youth, and Young Adult. All children attend the first 15 minutes of worship with their parents, and then are escorted to the Sunday School classrooms by their teachers. Your children are also welcome to remain in the worship service with you, if that is your preference.
Sunday School is fun! We use the "Gather Round" curriculum. We selected Gather Round because it makes the stories of Scripture accessible to kids of all ages. It is creative and hands-on, really getting young people involved in learning about what it means to be a Christian. We use singing, movement, handicraft projects, reading, writing, sign language, and games to learn about the Bible.
We also encourage parents to continue their children's religious education at home. You may not always know how to do this, so we provide resources to make it easier. For example, you might like to borrow a CD with songs you and your child can sing together. Once a month, the Young Adult group has Bible study with our pastor.
