Most Sunday mornings, young people in Preschool through Senior High begin at worship with their families. They are released to concurrent classes after a time “Not for Children Only.”

Sunday School is voluntary. If a child prefers to remain with parents, or the parents prefer to have the child remain with them, that is acceptable.

When there is a fifth Sunday in a month, and during some holidays, students who otherwise would be going to Sunday School remain in worship with their families.

Enrollment and participation in Sunday School are at no charge, although registration is required. Please contact Director of Christian Education Tracey Harris for an enrollment packet or more information.

 

A Christ-centered, Peace-oriented Curriculum

Our Sunday School curriculum is Shine: Living in God’s Light – a dynamic Sunday school curriculum that engages Christian communities and families in their life together by

  • calling children to experience the transforming power of God’s love
  • nurturing trust in God and invite children to follow Jesus
  • encouraging imaginative, interactive biblical storytelling
  • exploring the meaning of the Bible within the gathered community
  • cultivating the inner life of the Spirit through spiritual practices
  • expressing faith through lives of compassionate peacemaking and service

 

Nursery Care

Alternatively during worship, children up to Preschool age may want to be in our Toddler Room – the first Dutch door in the north-south hallway – where a practiced, paid attendant is present, and plenty of activities are provided. Toddler Care is available from 9 until 11:15AM, each Sunday.

Similarly throughout the morning, a Nursery is available for parents and infants, immediately outside the Narthex (front hallway).

Both the Toddler Room and Nursery are equipped with speakers transmitting the morning worship service.

 

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is our annual summer offering for young people, which meets during a week in mid- to late-June, on Sunday through Thursday evenings, beginning with supper together at 6:00 p.m. in Memorial Hall. Classes begin at 6:30 in Memorial Hall and last until 8 p.m.
