Children’s Sunday School 

 
If you are new to the church, please see someone at the Welcome Desk, just outside the Sanctuary, who can help you find the appropriate classes for your children.

 

10:00 AM: Our One-Room Sunday School House – Fellowship Hall

Using the Seasons of the Spirit curriculum, elementary age students will focus on a lectionary-based scripture reading, often the same one used in the sermon that morning. Then, using a variety of crafts and other activities, they will interpret the scripture for themselves and apply it to their lives. This is a traditional approach to religious education.

 

 

11:15 AM: Our Worship Hour – Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall

Families begin the worship hour together in the Sanctuary. Following the Time with Children, those in Pre-K through 3rd Grade are invited to Fellowship Hall to participate in Godly Play—an introduction to worship for young children where they hear and see scripture and, with the help of a storyteller, interpret the scripture verbally and tactilely. Students in the 4th and 5th Grades remain in the Sanctuary with their families, unless they are attending a Worship Supplement workshop. These workshops are held throughout the year and take place following the Time with Children. In both cases, the children are returned to the Sanctuary by their teacher before the end of the worship service to be reunited with their families.
 
 
REGISTRATION: Children need to be registered for Sunday School at 10:00 and for Godly Play at 11:15.
