We hope to be able to resume in-person Sunday School classes in 2021. The following information is our pre-pandemic Sunday morning schedule for children:
In order to truly welcome children into our faith community, all children Grades K - 5 begin worship in the Sanctuary with their families each Sunday and depart for Sunday School classes after the Children’s Message. The first Sunday of each month is Worship Together Sunday, when children in Grades 4 - 12 worship with their families for the entire hour.
While our program varies according to age group, each class has a curriculum that is enriched by worship, biblical storytelling, and music and visual arts. Our aim is to address the spiritual formation of children at their appropriate developmental stage within a faith community.
From Sept.- May, the schedule is as follows:
- Infant and toddler care with electronic pagers, 7:45 - 12:30 p.m., Education Building
- Art@9, a mixed-age art class for age 3 to grade 5, 8:45 a.m., Education Building
- Sunday School for age 2 - age 4, 10:00 a.m. In the 2 and 3-year-old class, children are introduced to bible stories in traditional classrooms. Our 4-year-old class uses a unique worship space environment with multi-sensory materials and biblical storytelling.
- Grades K-5 begin Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary with their families. After the Children’s Moment, they are dismissed down the center aisle to their “Shepherds” who walk them to their classrooms. (Please accompany your child if it's your first Sunday). Sunday School for Grades K-3 follows in assigned classrooms, while a Sunday School Workshop Rotation for Grades 4-5 is offered to provide a variety of ways for children to experience the Bible story each week through art, drama, computers, and even cooking.
Worship Together Sundays
Grades 4 -12 worship with their families on the first Sunday of the month ("Worship Together Sunday") from October through May and on summer Sundays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Special children’s bulletins and crayons are available; ask an usher.
What happens after Grade 5?
