CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

 

Sunday School

 

Our Sunday School Program takes place during our Morning Worship. Children leave worship for Junior Church after the Children’s Time and return during the last hymn. Each lesson includes and Bible story and related prayers, songs, and crafts, with games and religious videos sometimes included. The program year includes Rally Day in September through Children & Youth Sunday in June. Gifted and prescreened adult volunteers serve in our Junior Church Program that is coordinated by members of our Board of Christian Education in consultation with our Pastor.

 

Our  Church Program includes:

 

Nursery Care for infants & toddlers

Bible Story time and activities for Preschoolers

Biblically based and a varied activities program for children ages 5 -10

 

 

Adult Christian Education

 

Adults at our church study in groups where the individual spiritual and learning needs of each adult are given priority in determining the content and process for class sessions. All groups maintain a Small Group Covenant enabling persons to share in a trusting environment. Adults are asked to pre-register for most classes. Our Pastor and other gifted adults coordinate all adult classes. Over the past few years, the following small group studies have taken place:

 

                                         * Scripture Study (Joshua, Ruth, Esther, Romans, Revelation)

                                         * Small focus groups (Old Testament & New Testament overviews)

                                         * Book studies (“Honoring the Body”, “A Purpose Driven Life”, “Celebration of  Discipline” among others)

                                         * Newcomer’s Class

                                         * Baptism Class

                                         * Spiritual Retreats

                                         * Christian Parenting
