Christian Education

Children & Youth

Family Gathering

Wednesdays 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Wednesday evenings from 6-7 p.m. we explore Bible stories together as a families for children 4th grade and below. We sing silly songs, hear God’s word, and do a craft or activity to bring it home and help us connect the story to our lives. We want this to be a time where families are intentionally learning together and practicing spiritual disciplines together. It’s a great way to bridge the gap between church and home.

This spring we will walk through the life of Jesus, particularly focusing on his miracles and parables. 

Youth Group

5th-12th grade

Sundays 6-7:30 p.m.

Students gather for fellowship and to study God’s word more deeply. We start with hang out time and large group games, then we transition into a time of large group lesson and small group grade-based discussion.

Sunday evenings students get to learn about what Jesus actually taught during his 3 years of ministry, not just what we think he said, and discuss the implications of his words for our lives today.

Sunday School

Sunday School meets at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings followed by a time of Fellowship.

Children can be checked by family at the kiosk upstairs by the nursery or downstairs as you enter the classroom space.

Children & Youth

Nursery: Our babies get to learn and grow in their love of God through a simple, repetitive, tactile, developmentally appropriate lesson teaching that God made families! 

PreK: Starting in Genesis, through Play, Preschoolers experience God’s Big Story with their whole bodies as it leads them on a joyful discovery of God’s love.

K-2nd: At this level children get to use their vivid imaginations to experience the sights, sounds, and people in God’s story and to explore how they can live into and out of that story. Through the Patriarchs in Genesis they get to imagine being a part of God’s family. Then through Exodus, they get to imagine following God’s direction. And finally, during Advent, they get to imagine meeting Jesus.

3rd-4th: These students explore smaller portions of Scripture in more depth, allowing students to dig deep into and marvel at God’s Word. Through the stories of King David, they get to marvel at God’s faithfulness. Through the stories of Solomon, they get to marvel at God’s wisdom and strength.

5th-7th: Foundations class looks at the foundations of our faith, what we believe about God, about the Bible, and about ourselves.

8th-12th: Students will look at what the Bible actually says about Heaven and why it matters now, in this life.

Adult

We will have two adult Sunday School classes for the spring semester.

How to Read the Bible with Jessica Hooten-Wilson:

We’ll cover as much as we can of how the early church thinkers read the Bible and what tips we can draw from reading literature to help us read the Bible. We’ll walk through the virtues of reading, the four senses of scripture, and the ART (Author, Reader Text) of reading well. 

Luke Book Study with Aminta Arrington:

This class will focus on Jesus Christ of Nazareth as presented in Luke’s Gospel account, and in particular, His interactions with the poor and the marginalized.
