Children’s Sunday School Program
Preschool (ages 2 ½ through 4 years old)
Curriculum: Lesions out of picture Bible
Purpose: To start building the basic foundation of a Christ centered, C.O.B. based lifestyle through teaching and church worship experiences.
Our classroom is large, painted in bright primary colors. The furniture is age-appropriate sized, with a reading center (in a bath tub), a house keeping center, play center, and art center. The area is handicapped accessible and equipped. We are ready and able to include special needs children.
Teachers Sue Bock, Bonnie Hoffman
Our youth class provides the entire Children’s Dept. with a Christian based carnival the last Sunday in August during the usual class hour. Our youth provide an Easter egg hunt Easter Sunday morning during the usual class hour also.
Children's Church meets on 2nd. and 4th.Sunday of each month after the scripture reading in church. This worship experience is designed for children enrolled in kindergarten thru 5th grade. We meet on the first floor.
Children will hear scripture during God's Story/Our Story. This is followed by a message about the scripture - the messages often involve skits and puppets or games. Children will learn worship songs - both traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs. We will work on learning the doxology and the Lord's prayer so we can participate during "big church." Children will also create a classroom project about the worship topic for the day. Come and join us at Children's Church we can't wait to see you!
Youth Sunday school
Kindergarden - Grade 5
The class meets in a large room on the second floor at the top of the front stairs, next to the Good Shepherd wall mural.
The Shine Curriculum includes various ways to present, dramatize, and respond to the Bible stories. We work on learning the memory verses that go with the quarterly theme. Prayer, music and movement, and puzzle and craft activities help expand and reinforce the lessons. Grade 2 class and Grades 3, 4,5 class are combined into one group.
