2022 – 2023 School Year
Sunday School is offered to children 3 years old through 6th grade from 9 – 10 a.m. We are using a curriculum written by our very own members who know the kids and the ways they learn best. The children learn about the Bible passage for the week in their classrooms through fun and interactive games, stories, crafts, science, and snacks. Children start Sunday School off with Faith Rocks Worship where they will sing fun Christ-centered songs and hear about the days’ lesson.
