Sunday School Re-opens

It has been a long time since we have been able to host Sunday School at church.  We are taking first steps back as we welcome children, youth, and their families back for Worship and Sunday School ministries.

On Sunday morning, our children and youth will be present in worship with their families. Following the:

  • Opening song and prayer there will be a Young Disciples Moment after which the Preschool and Elementary (K-6) children will be dismissed to Fellowship Hall for a time of learning and fun.
  • Sermon the Youth Class (7-12) will be dismissed to their class in the Youth Room.

We are working with our Sunday School Leaders to have appropriate ventilation in our spaces and to ask the children above age 2 to wear masks as they interact.

We will be working to expand our staff team and have Sunday School ministry starting in mid to late October for pre-School age children. 

We look forward to growing the Christian Community as we share the faith and way of life that was shared with us.
