Children's Sunday School
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. ~ Proverbs 22:6
We offer Sunday School programs for kids of all ages at 9:30. The Nursery Sunday School Class is for the youngest members. The Beginners class is for children in pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten. The next class is for children in 1st and 2nd grade. Finally, the last children’s Sunday School class is for children in 3rd through 5th grade. Children are promoted to their next class in September during a ceremony during the 10:45 service.
