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 10:30 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

    For children in 1st - 5th grade. Sunday School is a weekly worship your child can attend during the 10:30 service . During the Sunday School hour they enjoy worship, a drama or recap about the Bible story, and activities to help them apply what they have learned together. Children check into Room 126/128 in the Ministry Center.
