Every year the church school program is built around a theme and culminates at our end-of-year Children and Youth Sunday service in June.

Simple Path PrayerIn our 2019-20 Church School year (see calendar below), we will be focusing on SERVICE!

We will focus on what the Bible says about service and about the many different ways we can serve and who we can serve: community, school, church, planet, animals, the list goes on! As Jesus said in Mark 9, verse 35: “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.”

Note: Church school does not meet on Communion Sundays, which are the first Sunday of each month.  We believe that this is a time to come together in worship as a community of faith.

We are also starting a Classroom Shepherds program which will consist of volunteers rotating in the classrooms to assist the teachers.

Confirmation class is a year-long process offered to youth in 9-12 grade.  We meet once monthly on Sundays for an hour.
