Christian Education

Our Christian Education Programs include Sunday school for children and youth ages Preschool to 12th grade.  The children and youth worship in the sanctuary with their parents for the first part of our worship service.  On most Sundays the children and youth leave the service following the doxology to attend their Sunday school classes.  However, on the first Sunday of the month the children and youth remain in the worship service until after they have received communion.  The two younger elementary classes (preschool through fourth grade) participate in age appropriate exploration of the scripture.  The middle school class (5th-8th grade) alternates between periods of traditional exploration of the scripture and project based learning that includes researching a problem the youth see in the world using the bible, UMC statements, and current solutions to the problem.  The high school class typically uses the Living in Christ curriculum that integrates current events with our Christian faith.
Another part of our Christian Education program is a series of fellowship events offered during the year.
