Sunday School is an opportunity for families to help one another pass their faith to children from preschool age through age eleven. These children are arranged in age-appropriate groupings where they learn God’s Word utilizing a “Through-the-Bible” revolving curriculum. The backbone of our curriculum is an excellent God-focused and family-unified study entitled “Generations of Grace.”
Sunday School meets weekly on Sundays from 9:00 to 9:45 am.
For families who want their younger children in a children’s church — children through age 8 have special children’s church services which meet Sundays at 10:00 am (during our morning church service). On Sunday evenings many of our younger children learn to sit in church and worship with their parents in the auditorium. Of course, we have a nursery available for all our services.
Children Music Clubs
Happy kids sing! Our PeeWee Pirate (age 3-5) and Patch the Pirate (age 6-11) music clubs meet Wednesdays for one hour beginning at 7:30 pm. These children choirs stress character and Bible-memory through a great music program. Their special music presentations are enjoyed in our adult worship services on Sunday mornings from time-to-time. Check out our PeeWee and Patch page.
