Sunday Education

9AM to 12PM Child Care

  • Through the Nursery experience your child will learn that church is a safe and fun place to spend time and even at this very young age begin to make friends and learn that we are all God’s people. We encourage families to introduce their children to the church experience by using our Nursery which is available during our Contemporary Service at 9am, Adult Sunday School at 10am and the Traditional Worship at 11am.

  • Graceful Revelations with Sylvia Jayne is an adult Sunday School class for women of all ages that meets at 10:00 on Sunday mornings. We decide on which book, usually a current biblically based book, or sometimes we do a DVD series. We all have input on what to study. We function as a small group who cares and supports one another in all we do. We also try to be involved in Church functions and even have our own fundraisers for the church from time to time. We welcome all to attend and get to know one another, we will be meeting in the North Room at 10AM starting the 14th of September.
