Sunday School

 

“The mission of the Christian Education ministry through its classes, programs, and activities is to help people of all ages know, love, and serve God on an increasingly consistent and obedient basis”.

Children and Youth

All volunteers in children and youth ministries of the church have been screened and background checked.

Nursery
Available during the worship service, Sunday School, and for other church activities. The nursery facilities are intended for children up to age four. We have both a Quiet Nursery where mothers can nurse and rock their infants and a Children’s Nursery for supervised play time and instruction. During Sunday School, there is also a class for Toddlers (ages 2 & 3).

Sunday School
Provides a supportive and caring environment where children are discipled and equipped to be followers of Jesus Christ. We use a Reformed Sunday School curriculum that disciples children by rooting them firmly in God’s Word. For older children and youth, the curriculum deepens and broadens students’ knowledge and understanding of God’s Word. Classes are provided as follows:

  • Age 3
  • Ages 4 – K
  • Grades 1-3
  • Grades 4-5
  • Grades 6-8
  • Grades 9-12

Communicants Class
Communicants Class is provided for children who are ready to make a public profession of faith. Students receive instruction in the Gospel, the Reformed faith, how the local church is governed and the Sacraments.

Adults

Each quarter we offer different adult Sunday School electives. The educational offerings are designed to teach spiritually-sound, culturally-relevant, and practical Christian principles important for both individuals and those in families as they grow in conformity to the image of Christ. Additionally, we offer adult electives in the areas of Christian Living and Doctrine often based on books or video series of both classic and contemporary Reformed Christian writers, pastors, and theologians. The classes are taught by our pastors, ruling elders, or members carefully selected for teaching adult classes.

Book of Mark: Jesus’ Disciples                                  

We will walk through the Gospel According to Mark in the shoes (or sandals) of the disciples and see how Jesus teaches these men to truly become His disciples – to follow Him and be made fishers of the lost. Jesus had a plan in everything He did during His walk on earth.   His main purpose – get to the cross in the greatest act of love ever known.  His disciples had to be prepared to shepherd His people – His Church – when He ascended to His Father’s side.  In a teaching and discussion format with fellowship we will come to know this amazing Savior in a deeper way and discover how, by Jesus’ leading, the disciples, common men, grew and were enabled to “go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation.” Bring your Bible and desire to grow in Christ and in the fellowship of His disciples.

“Coffee Talk”                                                                    

Have a cup of coffee/tea/cocoa, and talk about questions brought up by the sermon or living the Christian life, etc. This class will offer an informal opportunity for learning, discussion, conversation and discipleship.

 Inquirers Class                                                                     

The purpose of the class is to introduce you to the church, our beliefs and practices, and the importance of church membership.

Gospel According to the 10 Commandments                  

What does God want me to do? Many people ask that question, but not as many understand fully the answer God has given. Over 1,000 years before Christ, the people of Israel were gathered at the foot of Mount Sinai, and God spoke to them the Ten Commandments. In these words, God presents a summary of what he requires of those who know his favor. In this study, George Robertson examines the Commandments as they are recorded in the book of Deuteronomy. After delivering his people from slavery in Egypt and sustaining them through 40 years of wandering, God leads them to the threshold of the Promised Land. Moses reminds the people what God requires of those who know his salvation. Many wrongly view God’s commandments as an onerous burden. Pastor Robertson rightly explains how these commands reveal a life that is empowered by the grace of a Holy God.

Getting to the Heart of Parenting                                    

Parenting is hard, but there are few things in life that rise to this level of importance. God has chosen parents to be primary instruments in the shaping of a human soul. So often we get it wrong by using power to get our children to behave in certain ways. We establish laws and then play the role of police officer and judge. As Paul Tripp explains, parenting is so much deeper than rules and regulations. A biblical view teaches that parenting is all about the exposure and change of a child’s heart. Permanent behavioral change only occurs when the heart of a person is changed by grace. Getting to the Heart of Parenting covers principles of grace for children 0-5, 6-12, and 13-18. Learn how to become an instrument of heart-changing grace in the lives of your children.

While the title is focused on parenting, the content of the material is gospel centered and is applicable to all.  Parents and grandparents are especially encouraged to attend; but even if you aren’t a parent, consider joining us.

The first 25 minutes of class will include the DVD presentation of a conference by Paul David Tripp and will be followed by a time of discussion and sharing.
