Nurturing people into a right relationship of with God through Jesus Christ is the most important thing the church ever does. We seek to help people who enter our church to grow in their understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. September through May, the church meets Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m., for Christian nurture and growth.
Children and Youth Sunday School Programs
Infants through 4 year olds meet in the Nursery for simple lessons, music and childcare.
Faith Village is our Sunday School program for children from Kindergarten through 6th grade. It is built on the Workshop Rotation Model. Students begin the morning with a light breakfast from 9:00 - 9:10 a.m. They then visit the Marketplace, the Inn, the Temple, the Garden, the Carpenter's Bench, the Amphitheater, or the Synagogue, approaching Scripture from a variety of learning styles.

Middle School Sunday School includes 7th and 8th graders. They meet in Room 100. The class is taught by a team of teachers. The main resource for this class is "Faith In Motion" published by Cokesbury. The class includes discussion on faith and life issues facing midle schoolers as well as biblical study and mission opportunities. And, there is always time for fellowship and fun each Sunday morning!
High School Youth meet in room 101. High school youth enjoy a lively, Bible-based resource known as "Spice Rack", developed by Mark DeVries, founder of Youth Ministry Architects (now known as Ministry Architects). This resource not only imparts biblical knowledge in a fun and dynamic way, but it leads to wonderful sharing of ideas and discussion among class participants.
Adult Sunday School Classes
The Adult Christian Education Ministry focuses on providing opportunities for adults to grow in their personal faith and relationship to Jesus Christ.
Our "Journey in Faith", adult Sunday morning electives, are usually six-week gatherings that focus on topics included in the major categories of Bible and Theology, Church and Society, Spirituality, and Practical Faith. The format for these gatherings is presentation and discussion.
We also have an on-going discussion based class, Faithful Conversations, which is co-facilitated by a groupwith a focus on fellowsip and building relationships within the congregation. It is open to adults of all ages. There are topical discussions on current events, theological issues, elements of worship and choices Christians face each week.
