Our Sunday School programs are designed to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each child and youth along with the family. Our ministries seek to draw each child and youth into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the church.
Each Sunday, Preschool and Elementary aged children will delve into the same Bible story in Sunday School that they will hear during worship. Each lesson has four components. During Gather, children enjoy a welcoming activity and prayer. In Open the Bible, they explore a story together in their Bibles. Then, in Activate Faith, children experience creative activities that integrate Bible learning with everyday life. Finally, a Send activity and prayer closes the lesson.
6th and 7th Grade students focus on biblical studies as a sort of “pre-confirmation” curriculum leading up to their official confirmation studies in 8th grade. On alternating years, the 6th and 7th graders focus on either the New or Old Testament. During the 2017/2018 school year, they will be studying the Old Testament. Students in the 8th Grade (Confirmation year) will be focusing on a confirmation curriculum that prepares them for confirmation by helping them to understand their baptism, their faith commitment, and their place in the church.
Sr. High students will explore the Bible with the guidance of the book “Half Truths” by Adam Hamilton. the students will discuss phrases that we have been hearing all of our lives. The student will learn that although they capture some element of truth, when compares to the wisdom found in Scripture, they’re really just popular sayings.
