Sunday School Classes are offered for all ages every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Our teacher's use the Grow, Proclaim, Serve! curriculum. Your child will enjoy learning about the Bible through engaging lessons, crafts and games. More importantly they will feel welcomed and loved by our our caring teachers. The first Sunday of each month our preschool and elementary classes begin with music and praise in the chapel.

Jr. High (6-8)
Teacher: Jane Cooper
Each year the students in our Jr. High class search the Bible for a "word of the year". Each student looks through the Bible and writes down words that he/she finds interesting or that stand out for him/her. After compiling the list, each student chooses one word to focus on for the year. Some words that have been chosen in the past are: forgiveness, listen, gladness, wisdom, hope and trust. Each student makes a poster that is displayed in the classroom to remind the class of the words that were chosen. Periodically the words are reviewed to evaluate the impact that the word is having on thier lives.
This class is also studying the life of King David. He did some really great things, but he also committed some horrible sins. God showed His love for David in many ways. He loved him by both confronting him with his sins and forgiving him when he repented. As the youth learn about God's mercy and grace for David they learn that this same grace and mercy is extended to each of them.
This class enjoys opening and closing their lessons in ritual. Every class begins with prayer time and the sharing of joys and concerns. At the end of each lesson, a key Bible verse(s) is recited. One is: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. - Based on Matthew 22:37-39. Another is: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. - Romans 12:21.
The students in this class look forward to the tradition of painting a brick in the classroom to represent their faith before moving to the High School class.
Rooms 109 and 111
Teacher: Kevin Gaskill
Our high school class has a service and learning approach. The group meets once or twice a month in the youth room for a lesson/discussion led by teacher, Kevin Gaskill. The other weeks of the month are used for a variety of service projects inside the church including preparing slides for worship, helping with children's Sunday School and lending a hand wherever needed.
Our high school classes use the curriculum BL4Y (Bible Lessons for Youth). This curriculum applies the bible to real life issues our youth face today.
While your child is in Sunday School, make sure to check out one of our eight adult classes. The classes study a variety of Bible studies and current issues and have a variety of teaching styles. You are sure to find a class that is just right for you.
We periodically offer classes on special topics or issues such as parenting, prayer, world religions. Members are invited to suggest topics of special studies.
Note: Your child's safety is of of the utmost importance to us. All of our child care providers have had background checks and participated in child protection policy training. A copy of our child protection policy is available in the literature racks outside the church office.
