FYSH (Middle and High School)
rFour Curriculum is a scripture-centered curriculum supported by media clips provided with the appropriate lessons. Sunday school involves both teaching and instilling the disciplines of Christianity (worship, prayer, studying scripture). This class encourages discussion and community and invites the students on a consistent basis to give of themselves in service.
Multi-age Classroom (Elementary School)
The Seasons of the Spirit Multiage Sunday School classroom is uniquely de-signed to meet the needs of ages 5 years through 5th grade. The Multiage Lectionary-based lessons offer different age-appropriate options for engaging with the biblical stories and includes “activity zones” that address different ages, interests, learning styles, and abilities. This group will experience storytelling scripts, self-directed learning, and relationships with children of different ages as they create community, sharing time and space each week. Children’s Worship offered through 2nd grade.
Sunday School and Children’s Worship K-5th Grade use Seasons of the Spirit Curriculum. They are learning lessons on Advent and leading up to Easter. In addition, The Lord’s Prayer will be taught.
Toddlers (18 months to 4 Years Old)
Children this age are very busy learning by exploring and interacting with their world. They are learning about God through simple songs, books, art and other hands-on experiences. Yet, they still have the need for safety and security provided by a carefully prepared environment, learning that God will be present in both their exploring and their “returning”. Children learn through experiencing the stories of our faith in the Bible, listening and talking to God through prayer, speaking and singing the language of our liturgy, and building a community of young disciples as we care for one another and our environment. Our playground and children’s garden are an extension of our classroom. We offer children’s church through second grade. Teaching and care is provided on Sunday morning during both Sunday School and Worship.
Nursery (Birth – 18 Months)
Infants learn to trust and experience God through the love and nurture provided by the adults in their environment. Our Nursery strives to support stages of faith development by provid-ing consistent and loving care with trained childcare workers. The envi-ronment is clean, safe, secure, and age appropriate. Our Nursery policies are designed to foster the health and safety of each child. Nursery is avail-able for all Sunday morning activities and other times by prior arrangements through the church office.
