Sunday School

Our elementary students meet every Sunday during a portion of the church service (10:00 AM) for a time to learn about God through conversations, crafts, and games.

The curriculum we use is based on the Revised Common Lectionary.

Check out the music we are learning on Wednesdays and Sundays through the YouTube Channel listed below!
