We use the Celebrate Wonder curriculum in our Sunday morning

ministry to help children hear about God’s love and  explore the Bible in ways

that feed their imagination and encourage creativity while giving them the

tools to incorporate their faith into their daily lives. 

    Sunday School, birth - Kindergarten

    Children in Kindergarten and below attend Chapel during their 10:30am Sunday School hour. They begin by bringing in the Light of Christ. Next they celebrate the Bible and participate in the giving of their offering, then hear and experience the Bible story together. They end with a prayer and a reminder that they can always carry the Light Of Christ with them in their hearts.  

    Sunday school, 1st - 5th grade

    For children in 1st - 5th grade. Sunday School is a weekly worship your child can attend during the 10:30am service . All elementary children will start out in Worship with their families. After the Children's Moment, the children will be escorted to their age appropriate class.
