Come grow with us!
Christian Education classes for children age 4 through grade 12 are held during the school year between services on Sunday morning. See below for the class that fits you.
All classes have been moved to Zoom until further notice. Email Karen for info on how to connect.
- Whirl Kids (Pre-K through 3rd grade) meet on the lower level Sundays at 10:15am. Kids are introduced to key Bible stories and Christian concepts through Bible reading, classroom activities, songs, games, and animated characters who give them a visual of how to live out faith. Kids also receive a leaflet with activities to take home to do with their families during the week.
- Submerge Class (grades 4-7) class meets on the lower level Sundays at 10:15am. These younger youth will take a deeper dive into the Bible, contemplate tough questions, and enter into the stories through improvisational drama, deep discussion, and creative activities. The Submerge magazine articles help tweens make connections between biblical faith and modern culture.
- Senior High Discussion Group meets in the Wesley Room on the upper level Sundays at 10:15am. The group takes a closer look at the Bible – finding deeper meaning than the Sunday School lessons of our childhood – and engages in discussion about living out its lessons and the role a Christian faith plays in our 21st century lives.

Do you know all the books of the Bible in order? Yeah, we didn’t either… so our 6th grade class created this fun video to help us remember where everything is!
