Sunday School is held most Sundays between September and June at 9:45 a.m., following worship. The students watch a short video about that week’s lesson from church, then go into separate classes based on ages for a lesson and sometimes a craft. We look forward to finding ways to add music back into the program keeping in mind safeguards for COVID-19.
We begin each year in September with Rally Day, when we welcome returning and new students to register and introduce our staff. Typically, on the Sunday prior to Christmas each year we hold our pageant, telling the story of Christ’s birth from various perspectives with costumes and songs. Palm Sunday brings our traditional egg hunt and Easter craft. We also hold a special children’s gathering on Good Friday to help them understand the difficult concept of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. In June, we celebrate on our final day of Sunday school with games and special treats. During the pandemic, we have had to adjust these activities to keep everyone safe. We are planning a Christmas community activity for this year and hope to be able to resume more “normal” activities as COVID becomes more controlled.
