Sunday School

Sunday School is in session!!

Sunday School classes are offered for all ages and stages, including children, youth, and adults.

  • For help in locating a class, visit our Welcome Station in the narthex (lobby in back of the church).
  • All classes meet from 9:30-10:30 between our worship services (most meet only Sept-May).
  • All classes are always open to new persons at anytime!

Children's Classes

We have an Open Registration so that students may join our classes at any time during the school year. Simply complete a Sunday School Registration Form and turn it in to the child's Sunday School teacher.  When a child enters 3rd grade, we love to present him/her with a brand new Bible.  Please let us know how the Bible should be inscribed by completing this form.
