The Sunday School

easteregghuntTraditional Sunday School
Traditional Sunday School is offered September – June during the 10 AM Worship Service. Children gather with their families in the Sanctuary for the Call to Worship, Confession, Sign of Peace, Anthem, and Children’s Message. Following the Children’s Message, children ages 3 through grade 6 are dismissed to the Sunday School classrooms to learn about God’s Love, Worship, Prayer, and Service in multi-age learning groups. A lectionary based curriculum, Spark Activate Faith (PreK/K) and Feasting on the Word (Grades 1-6) is used to hear Bible stories, ask questions, and interpret the stories in meaningful activities.

Children’s Worship and Communion Sundays
During the school year, on the first Sunday of the month, children are dismissed to Fellowship Hall following the Children’s Message to meet with a member of the Choir to learn songs that will be used during future worship services. This is also a time to introduce children to worship, communion, and prayers of the Church, including the Lord’s Prayer and Apostle’s Creed. Following the gathering, children will return to the Sanctuary for participation in Holy Communion. Participation in worship is a vital component of a child’s faith formation. Children are provided opportunities several times during the year to actively participate in worship through singing, special prayer services, presentations, reading scripture, and serving as an usher. In June, the older Sunday School students, along with the Confirmation Class, will lead the regular worship service on Youth Sunday.

Children’s Christmas Eve Worship Service
Children are invited to portray the Gospel of Jesus’ Birth during the 4 PM, Children’s Christmas Eve Worship Service. This service is geared towards a child’s perspective and encourages families with children of all ages to worship together. Children will begin planning for this worship service during Sunday School classes beginning in late October.

Faith and Friends Days
Approximately one Sunday per month during the school year, children are invited, and encouraged, to bring a friend or two to Sunday School. During these special days, children of all ages will gather and grow in faith by participating in holiday activities with a Christian perspective: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Advent/Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Lent/Easter, etc.

Summer Sundays
During the summer months, children are invited to participate in interactive learning stations to help them grow in their faith. Children may select which learning stations to complete each week. Summer Sundays allow children to grow and discover their faith in an informal setting in a one-room, multi-age learning environment. This past summer, children discovered the Fruits of the Spirit during each week of Summer Sundays
