Sunday School and Youth Education

10:15 AM to 11:00 AM 

 Junior Room and Guild Rooms in the Church Building




Our Sunday nursery is staffed by a trained preschool teacher who shares an age appropriate Bible story with the children every Sunday. Preschoolers who attend worship before going to the nursery or who stay in worship with their parents are also included in the Time with Young Disciples at the beginning of worship. This time involves a Bible story and brief lesson shared by the pastor or members of the congregation.


Primary Aged Children


These children are also included in the Time with Young Disciples’ as described above. And they are invited to attend Sunday School during the last two-thirds of the worship hour where lessons are taught by parents and members of the congregation. Current curriculum is Seasons of the Spirit. Occasionally special events are planned for this age group, such as a mini-retreat on prayer.


Junior and Senior High Youth


Youth are encouraged to attend worship and also to attend youth group on the first and third Sunday evenings of each month. These meetings include Bible study, prayer, games, dinner, and mission planning and events. The group of 9 youth is currently planning an August mission trip to Maine where they will work with a rural community ministry. Youth also lead worship several times per year.
