Children begin in the sanctuary with their families until the children’s message, at which point they are dismissed to Sunday School (around 10:15 am). Kids stay with their Sunday school class until they are dismissed at 11:15. Parents are invited to stick around after worship for coffee, cookies, and to build connections and community with one another. Kids will be dismissed along with their classmates to coffee hour in Dennis Hall at 11:15 am.
We currently use three curricula from Sparkhouse: Our youngest kids use Frolic, a program specially designed to support the spiritual growth of kids birth to three. Those in PreK through fifth-grade use SPARK: Activate Faith! Spark is a lectionary-based model that allows the whole family to hear the same story whether they’re in worship or Sunday school! Tweens and teens in Middle and High School participate in CoLABorate, a bible study that allows teachers to answer questions about the bible and integrate current events and issues specific to navigating adolescence into their time together.
Our Sunday School classes will be held in Education Hall (Ed Hall) and the Youth House.
