Our Church School Program 


Preschool (Classroom #2) ~ The children in our preschool class learn about eight bible stories over the course of the year. They spend four weeks on one story. Each week involves a picture book and an activity to follow the story. This year they will learn the following stories: Noah's Ark; Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors; The Birth of Jesus; Daniel and the Lions; The Story of Easter; The Creation Story; Moses; and Jonah and the Whale.  This class is for children ages three and four years old.  


Kindergarten & First Grade (Classroom #3) and Second & Third Grade (Classroom #7) ~ The children in these classes will embraced the Deep Blue curriculum.  It is a comprehensive Bible study that covers the Bible over three years. It incorporates stories, science activities, arts and crafts, and games that will help our children discover what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ. In our classrooms, we use colorful and engaging resources that encourage the children to "dive deeper" into the Bible and explore their faith in a fun and age-appropriate ways


The Fourth & Fifth Grade (Claassroom #4)  ~ The children in our fourth and fifth grade class will learn how the Bible came to be, how to use the Bible, the significance of the Torah and the important stories of the Old and New Testaments.  The teacher uses a book titled  "Teaching Children Bible Basics"  that provides lessons that stimulate creativity and critical thinking in our children.  The children in fourth grade have just received their own bibles and will need to learn how to use it.  For those children in fifth grade, it will reinforce the lessons from the previous year. 


Junior High (Library)  ~  The children in the Junior High class will focus on the lectionary year. The teacher uses a curriculum called Seasons of the Spirit which allows the youth to see the church in full circle.  They are able to connect with what they have been learning for the past several years to real world situations.  


Learning Centers  ~  Learning centers take place on the first Sunday of the month for those in Kindergarten through Eighth grade.  They are designed to broaden their Christian Education knowledge and to work together as a community.  The children will be begin their morning in the Sanctuary to participate in communion.  Those children in Pre-school will have regular church school.   


Christian Education Program  ~  Our Christian Education Enrichment program is a multi-aged, one room classroom.  It provides an opportunity for our children to further their knowledge in our Christian tradition.  These programs are open to all children and are held on Sundays that are generally low in attendance.
