...“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
Church School plants the seed of faith in our children, it teaches them how to live their lives as a Christians, and teaches them the practice of reading the Bible.
Church School meets during the 10:00 a.m. service. The children come to church with their families and are brought up to class by their teachers following the Children’s Message. They are brought back into church in time to have Communion with their families. The younger class (Preschool – First Grade) has a hands-on curriculum playing within the different Bible stories using a story set and activities related to the lesson. The older class (Grades 2-5) uses a Scripture based curriculum called “Faith Weaver Now” by Group Publishing. Both classes study the Old Testament in the fall and shift to the New Testament for winter and spring Newcomers and visitors are always welcome!
