Sunday School

We have a dedicated team of volunteer teachers who lead each class and help youth connect the teachings of our Christian creeds and Scriptures with their own lives. Our youth programs are meeting in person this fall! Please come to the Multipurpose Building (campus map) for Sunday School.

We'll meet there briefly then split to:

  • 11/12th grade: Multipurpose Building
  • 9/10th grade: Big Youth House Room
  • Middle School Boys: Youth House Basement
  • Middle School Girls: Multipurpose Basement

Parents are invited to join us for the Parent Gathering in Jones Hall in the Education Building for a reflection on the Scripture and to support one another in raising children to know Christ.

Serving

We provide many opportunities for youth to serve throughout the year! Helping with food drives, packing up welcome boxes for families moving from homelessness to homes, and making sandwiches for those with food insecurities are just a few examples. In addition, juniors and seniors who are interested in helping lead and disciple some of our children are invited to serve as youth leaders for the weekly Club 45 (4th and 5th graders). If you are interested, please contact Kristin!

Registration

Prior to your youth's participation in our youth activities, we ask that you complete a brief registration.
