Sunday school is a large part of our Christian Education program. We use the curriculum Grow, Proclaim, Serve which helps us connect the stories in the Bible with children’s lives today. Service and inclusion are an important part of our church’s philosophy and Sunday school curriculum. We strive to teach the children to Love God and Love Others.
Sunday school continues through May 19, 2013. Classes do not meet on October 7, November 25 or December 30 in 2012 and March 31, 2013.
Our Sunday school is taught by experienced, caring adult teachers and teen assistants. Class configuration depends on demographics. The fall of 2012 we have three classes: PreK and Kindergarten (ages 4, 5and 6); Grades 1, 2 and 3; Grades 4 and 5. Sunday school meets on the second floor of Nolan House. Children attend the worship service with their family until after the children’s theme then meet their teacher in the church foyer to go to class. Class ends at noon.
Snack is provided for the PreK-Kindergarten class. The older classes do not have snack on a regular basis but students are welcome to bring something to share. We ask that you avoid all peanut and nut products.
Throughout the year, during the Sunday school time, the children participate in special events such as a children’s communion service, Christmas musical program, and on October 28, 2012 we will have our first Christian themed Halloween party.
All information for Sunday school activities will be on our website. Check periodically, especially if your child has been absent from Sunday school.
