Sunday School

We welcome families with children ages 3 through 12 every Sunday at 9:30am.

 

Children start the day upstairs with our Music Minister, Matt Hummel, to learn a song for the Children's Choir. After that session, they will be led in a Bible-based lesson by one of our long-time congregational members until the worship service begins at 10:30am.

During the worship service, Pastor Gary will invite the children to participate during worship in various small ways week to week (like the monthly song or helping to light the Advent wreath). 

The kid-centric Sunday School experience will then continue as our Stevens University teachers, Emily and Taylor, will return with the children to the Parish Hall, leading them in crafts, games, and a snack. 

Our goal with this dynamic Sunday School plan is simply to give everyone in your family (adults and kids alike) the space they need to be recharged and happy coming to church.

 
Confirmation
Class

Through Confirmation, our personal relationship with Jesus is strengthened. Youth go deeper into their faith, gain wisdom to see the world from God’s viewpoint, and start to come to grasp with their own purpose in this life. Students in 7th & 8th grade and all young teenagers who have not yet been confirmed are welcome to attend Confirmation Class.

The year and a half long process involves meeting with Pastor Gary once a week during the school year, attending Confirmation Camp in the summer, and completing service projects.
