As a faith community that was founded in 1900 originally as a Sunday School, our mission revolves around teaching the next generation and supporting its families. We provide both nursery care and opportunities for children from age 3 through 5th grade to participate in and learn about the Christian faith.

Church School, Ages 3*-5th Grade

Children begin in the Sanctuary with their families. Following the Children’s Message, they are escorted to their classroom for age-appropriate Bible stories and lessons, projects, games, and friendship building. Adults meet children in their classrooms after worship.
Note: On the first Sunday of the month, children in grades 3-5 remain in the Sanctuary to participate in Communion with their church family.
*Parents of 3 year olds may allow their child to go to the nursery or participate in church school. Children older than 3 years should participate in their respective classrooms
The first time one of your children attends Church School, we will ask that you complete a registration form (one form per family). The teachers will use this information to track enrollment, to communicate with families, and to note any special concerns (such as allergies).
|Nursery||Please sign your child in when dropping them off.|
|All Other Classes||Children will begin the 10:30 am worship with their families and then will follow their teachers to their respective classrooms after the “Children’s Message.” Please pick up your child from their classroom after the service ends.|
