Our Sunday School program builds a strong foundation in the Christain faith for our children and creates a community where they can learn, play, form friendships, and find fellowship.
On Sunday mornings, children remain in the worship service through the Children's Message in which Rev. Early offers a unique message for them on the same texts he has shared with the entire congregation. The children then head downstairs for a few songs accompanied by guitar before breaking into their two classes (pre-K-1st grade children and 2nd through 5th grades) where they explore the Bible's messages and applications to their lives.
On several Sundays throughout the year, children take on many of the leadership roles during the worship service. For example, children will light the candles, ring the bell, collect the offering, read the liturgy. The sermon that day will be appropriate for children and adults.
Nursery care is provided for younger children every Sunday.
In addition to Sunday mornings, quarterly fellowship activites are planned for evenings or weekends, e.g. Mariners game, camping, church sleepover.
We need your help with Sunday School! We hope it will be a rewarding way to contribute to our church community. Please see which age group and time slot meets your needs. We have easy to use curricula for K-6th graders. Karen, Andrea, and Brooke are happy to help with any questions about teaching! It is important to look at who is teaching the week after you to coordinate delivery of curricula and a note about how far you got in your lesson. For our oldest kids (7th grade and up), we'd like to have someone take them out for coffee, donuts and conversation on the 2nd Sunday of the month. This is a chance for them to get to know adults in our church family and you to get to know them. All volunteers will need to complete a background check and return to Andrea Early.
