We want the children to know who God is and to respond to Him in obedience. In order to accomplish this goal, our gifted and caring Sunday school teachers use games, songs, arts, and crafts along with solid Bible lessons to teach the children in a captivating way. We want to see the children's lives changed, so we put the emphasis on teaching God's word.
The Sunday school ministry is one of the most important of the children's ministries. Our 9:30 and 11:00 am services have classes for children from 3 years old through 6th grade. We have a different class for each of the following age groups: 3 and 4 year olds, Kindergarten through 2nd grade, and 3rd through 6th grades. Our 8:00 am service has a class for 3 year olds through 2nd grade.
For the 3rd through 6th grade classes we incorporate supplemental material into the Sunday school hour to further develop the children spiritually. First, we teach them basic Bible knowledge. The basics of the Bible give the children a greater understanding of the Bible itself and help prepare them to use the Bible as a tool in their daily lives. Basic Bible knowledge includes the books of the Bible in order, the ten commandments, the Lord's prayer, the great commission, and other key verses.
On occasion we also present a hero of the faith biography to the children in the 3rd through 6th grade classes. We want to encourage the children by the lives of individuals who demonstrated great obedience, faith, and sacrifice. Missionaries, theologians, and preachers make great heroes for the children to look up to and emulate.
We would love for you and your children to visit us in Sunday school. If you would like more information, please contact Clint McClure, our director of children's ministry.
