Faith Development for Children

2019-20 Programs for Children

With the help of an experienced and committed team of teachers our program will:

* Apply our beliefs in God and Jesus to our lives
* Help children gain a better understanding of Jesus and the Bible
* Teach children to work together in a caring and peaceful community

Sunday School
The 2019-20 school year began Sunday, September 8th during the 10 a.m. worship service. Grades 4K through seventh will be using a curriculum called Holy Moly and another called Whirl.

4K through first grade: Every lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and have an activity.

Second through Fourth grade: Every lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and have an activity.

Fifth through eighth grade: Every lesson follows a four-part sequence: Discover, Relate, Connect, and Create. Each week, kids watch an animated Bible story video, talk about the story, read their Bible Storybook or Bible, and have an activity.

Eighth through tenth grade: Confirmation
Our confirmation program helps young people in their early teens to decide if they are ready to become members of our congregation, and confirm that they want to walk in the way of Jesus.

Mission Statement

To create and promote opportunities for religious education, spiritual growth, and intergenerational connections for our members and friends throughout their lifespans.

Our picture policy

We will not identify any children by name in photos on the web site or Facebook. We ask members and friends to notify us on the registration form if they do not want their children pictured on the web site or Facebook at all. Please let the pastor or director of faith development know if you are concerned about this.
