Sunday School

For the 2019-2020 school year, Sunday School will be held September 15th through May 24th for children 3 years old to 5th grade. Class begins at 8:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings. After a lesson and some fun activities, children join the adults in worship for communion, prayers, the closing song, and blessing, all sitting together with the teachers in the front of the sanctuary.

We believe it's important for kids to be a part of worship - to receive communion and offer their praise and prayers to God.

To register your child for Sunday School, complete this form.

If you have any questions, contact our Minister of Congregational Life.

2020 First Communion Class

The next First Communion class will be held in the spring of 2020. Children who are ready* to begin receiving Communion and at least one parent/guardian should plan to attend this class. Children who complete the class will then take their First Communion at our Maundy Thursday worship service (April 9th, 2020). Please sign your child up for the class on the sign-up sheet after it's placed in the foyer.

*If you're not sure about your child's readiness for receiving Communion, please feel free to talk with Pastor Brandon or Monica, our minister of congregational life, about it.
