Spiritual Growth

Sunday School

 

Children's Sunday School

We are so excited to dive in with your kids as we play games, do science stuff, and have fun with faith in a hands-on way.

  • Ms. Tracey will have the pre-K-K kids (while other adult helpers snuggle with babies)

  • Ms. Joyce Frazee will be with those kids in 1st-3rd grades

  • Ms. Marianne Rinker will meet with our 4th-6th graders.

Adult Sunday School - Dr. Mary Clark's class on "Who Is Jesus?" is this session's Sunday School class. Many of us know some of Jesus’ teachings, stories, miracles, parables, etc., but do we know who he is as a person? This class will focus on the Gospel of John and, as always, we will share our thoughts and insights. Feel free to join whenever you are able. Rooms 200-202, between first and second services (10:05-10:55 am).

Youth Groups

 

Jr. High Youth Group 

Designed for 7th and 8th graders, the Jr. High Youth Group is tailored to create laughter, joy, and friendship as faith is formed and developed. As the kids learn of Jesus, they will play games, have challenging discussions, and grow closer as a group. Meetings for this group are in person in the youth room on Sundays from 5:30-6:30 pm. You can email Pastor Nick for more information.

 

Senior High Youth Group 

We encourage 9th through 12th graders to join youth group where the love of Jesus is shared through conversation, games, and personal growth! Each week will have new games, discussion questions, and voices to help the youth experience where God is at work in this world, and how Jesus can transform their lives. This group meets in the youth room on the lower level on Sundays at 6:30 pm.  You can email Pastor Nick.
