Sunday School Classes
The Pre-Kindergarten –Kindergarten Class weaves Bible stories and age-appropriate arts and crafts into a fun, first Sunday School experience. Sunday School provides many young children their first opportunity to separate from their parents in a classroom environment. Several special friends (who’ve been through this before) are available to help your child adjust as you both take this very important step in early childhood development.
The Kindergarten Class explores scriptural truths through Bible stories, hands-on activities and an introduction to memory treasures. A snack is offered before Closing Worship.
The 1st through 6th Grade Classes use a variety of means to help children understand the lessons behind the familiar Bible stories. Children should bring their Bibles to Sunday School. Memory treasures are used to reinforce scriptural truths. A snack is offered at the discretion of the teacher.
