Sunday Church School

The Sunday Church School adventure integrates learning through Bible stories, faith formation and service projects. Each week we build on the fundamentals of faith, learning about the stories in the Bible and God’s love for us through storytelling, crafts and dramatic play. We welcome all children who will be at least three years old by the September 1.

Vacation Bible School

Summer offers the perfect time for some of our youngest friends a chance to grow in their faith and make new friends through Vacation Bible School. Together we explore God’s great world and learn Bible stories, create crafts, play games and activities, and sing songs in a special 4-day summer adventure.  Available at both campuses.
