Sunday School
The core of our Christian Education is Sunday School. We offer classes during the school year for pre-school age through adult.
It meets from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. every Sunday morning. 
 It is a great way to begin our praise of God on Sunday morning. 
Sunday Club: This is a rotation based curriculum by Spark targeted to grades PreK - 4th grade. Fred Rogers once said, "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." Students learn various Bible stories through play in different workshops including: Science, Bible Skills & Games, Art, Cooking, Drama, Technology, and Music.

Tweens:  5th -8th grade uses a lectionary based curriculum called, "Feasting on the Word Curriculum: Teaching the Revised Common Lectionary." It is an ecumenical resource that incorporates the uniqueness of the award-winning Feasting on the Word commentaries. This curriculum begins with a solid scriptural and theological base for leaders and invites leaders and learners deeper into the rhythm of the church year.

We try to give the kids several opportunities to serve others others through:
Operation Christmas Child:

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

The Sunday School Mission Fund:

Each Sunday morning, an offering is taken at Sunday School.


In 2014, we worked to "Fill an Ark" through Heifer International. We have purchased sheep, 6 flocks of chickens, pig, goat, llama, water buffalo, and a heifer.

During 2015, we worked toward purchasing a Cotton Candy Machine for the Webb House.
