Sunday School
Sundays/ 10:00am

This is a great way for children of the church to connect to one another and get to know some other adults in our congregation as they are introduced to the many stories of scripture.
  • please be on time, as it gives your child time to meet everyone and participate in the welcome activity
  • don't worry if you miss a week, while we'd love to have every child in the church every week our stories are presented independently from week to week. So if they are here they will obviously get to see/hear more of the lessons, but if they are away one week they won't be lost when returning.
