We aim to make Sunday School the best hour of a kid’s week! There is never a dull moment! For younger kids (ages 3-5th Grade), themed lessons change every 4-6 weeks. Activities encourage active learning through lessons purposely planned to highlight the theme’s Bible Verse and story by way of cooking, art, games, science, stories, and music. The safety of your children is very important to us.

Sunday School Sign In – All children ages 3-5th Grade must be signed in and out by an adult.
