Sunday School- 4 years through 5th grade

During the school year, our Sunday School programs for children and teens meet at 10:30 am in the school building. On the first Sunday of the month, we will have a first Sunday family worship service, and no Sunday School for children. Our family worship service gives our community an opportunity to worship together in a “kid friendly” format and allows teens and children to serve as readers, ushers and more!

On May 28, we make a shift to a Summer Sunday School program for children, tweens, and teens. Read about Summer Sunday School.

 

Godly Play (4 years – 2nd grade)

Godly Play is a Montessori-based curriculum developed by the Rev. Jerome Berryman, an Episcopal priest. This is a class that brings the Bible to life, giving children a foundation and understanding of God’s story. Gifted storytellers retell stories just like ancient storytellers passed down the sacred stories of the Bible. Children will see the “sand of the desert,” the “chains of the Israelites” and have a time to question and respond to the story with paint, clay and even Legos. The children are invited to choose their “work;” an artistic response to the story.

re:form (grades 3 – 5)

re:form is a Bible curriculum developed to prepare young people for confirmation. Kids will be challenged to dig deeper, share experiences of faith, build community and find connections to God. Video clips offer humor, while tackling tough questions. It’s not all silliness – substance and humor are paired in ways that deliver messages in ways that speak to tweens.
