Sunday Church School
Our 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 September 1, 2018.
