Our Christian Education program begins the second Sunday of September. Sunday School is held during worship at 10:30am.
Families worship together for the first 20 minutes and following the children's message, they will be dismissed to their classrooms.
Sunday School ends at 11:45am allowing parents a few minutes after worship to have bagels & coffee and talk with others before picking up their child (or just sit silently in the sanctuary).
We have professional, paid teachers and also have access to a resource teacher for children of special needs
The curriculum is Spark Classroom which is interactive, bible-based and hands-on with activities, music, and games. Our teachers are professionals who understand the faith development of children.
