Are you a parent or a grandparent who is trying to raise a child (or children) to share your Christian faith? Are you looking for a place where the lessons you teach at home will be reinforced? Are you looking for additional adult Christian role models for your children? Do you think your children can’t possibly hear stories of God’s love for them too many times?
Our Sunday School provides some of the help that parents need. Through the creative use of art, science, food, computers and music we provide a stimulating learning environment. Children aged one month to eighteen years can find a classroom designed just for them. A complex world demands complex answers. We try to help young people find those answers in our Christian tradition and faith. Our teachers are screened and trained in Leading with Care protocols so that we can provide the safe community that kids need to flourish in.
Our Sunday School meets at the same time as our Sunday morning worship service. Preschool children and infants may go directly to their class when they arrive at church. Our nursery and preschool rooms are on the first floor of the Christian Education wing. All other children attend the first part of the worship service; their teachers will lead them to the appropriate class when the minister announces the start of Sunday School. Children aged two to senior kindergartens use the Young Children in Worship curriculum. School-aged children up to grade 8 take part in Workshop Rotation Model classes, which are highly interactive. A bulletin board in the Great Hall lists classrooms so parents can locate children after the service. We invite parents to attend if they feel that their child needs their reassuring presence. High school students have their own class for learning and discussions at this time.
