CHILDREN'S CHURCH SCHOOL CLASSES
"Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me."
ALL CHILDREN'S AND YOUTH CLASSES MEET AT 9:45 AM SUNDAY MORNING
PRE-KINDERGARTEN TO KINDERGARTEN
Meets in Toddlers Room 10
Growing in Grace & Gratitude is quarterly curriculum that will helptransform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grace and gratitude. Children this age play and learn by pretending and mimicking what the adults around them do. They learn about spiritual matters the same way they learn about other things: through relationships with caring people, through their senses, through hands-on experiences, through play, through curiosity. While children this age think literally, listening to stories helps spark their young imaginations. Encouraged by a sense of wonder at God's amazing ways, they can be assured of God's love for them—a love that does not depend on what they know or understand.
ELEMENTARY CLASS GRADES 1 TO 5
Meets in Elementary Room 12
Growing in Grace & Gratitude is quarterly curriculum that will help transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grace and gratitude. Multi-age environment is a wonderful place for children of various ages to grow in faith. Differences in the experiences, knowledge, and abilities of the children can be celebrated. It is a joy to observe older children as they help their younger friends. They do so with great pride. As we watch older children respectfully interact with younger ones, we see their potentials unfold. Younger children benefit by modeling actions from their older peers. Encouraged by a sense of wonder at God's amazing ways, they can be assured of God's love for them—a love that does not depend on what they know or understand.
MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL CLASS 6 TO 12
Meets in Blue Room 13
Youth are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Feasting on the Word materials provide opportunities for this age group to explore their personal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God's amazing, unconditional love, youth will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ's disciples. Each session includes a media connection section that ties the week's Scripture passage to a film, video, song, or website.
