PreK- Grade 5

Calendar info below!

This age group gathers at 9AM in the lower level of the church for a time of group children’s worship followed by Sunday school. During the worship portion, the children learn the Bible story of the day, collect an offering and their stewardship reflection, sing in children’s
choir, and have a group prayer. At the end of this group worship, the children break into two separate classrooms: Prophets: preK-grade 2 and Apostles: grades 3-5. Each classroom has one teacher and one adult assistant.  For the 2019-2020 school year, we are using the curriculum Shine: Living in God’s Light, which is co-published by Brethren Press and MennoMedia

See our Calendar below!

Middle and High School

Calendar info below!

Our combined middle school and high school class meets at 9AM on the 2nd floor in the Youth Room. A team of teachers rotates and for the 2019-2020 school year,  uses the curriculum "Spice Rack" published by Abington press. The lessons are based on a Biblical lesson that is then applied to a contemporary context. Some weeks the class simply has a question and answer session about all matters relating to the church, faith, the Bible, or contemporary issues facing
our youth today. No question is too big or too small or out of place.

We love questions.

Adult Sunday School


The Adult class meets every Sunday morning 9-10am in the first floor
conference room. The class follows thematic studies that run for 3-6 weeks. A Biblical foundation is the backdrop for discussing contemporary issues and themes. The guided conversations allow us to inform our responses to modern topics from a Christian perspective
and encourage us to ask questions and fully discuss how we are to respond to these contemporary issues.
