Sunday, September 12 @ 10am
Learn all about the NEW Sunday School classes available for children, youth, and adults!


New and Current Sunday School Classes

Babies - In their early months, babies develop trust based on the care they receive. This development of trust is crucial to their later ability to trust in God. Although there is not a curriculum for the babies class, we provide excellent care for babies’ needs in our nursery.

Toddlers and 2’s - Children will learn the foundational themes of their developing faith. Simple concepts such as “God made me” will be taught through age appropriate, fun and creative activities.

3’s to Kindergarteners - Children will learn Bible truths in a way that's keeps their interest, and helps them understand how much God loves them.

 New hands-on tools will help children learn through all their senses, meeting and interacting with the God who made them.

1st-3rd Graders and 4th-6th Graders - With a new hands-on curriculum, children will get involved, learning as they explore and engage with their senses. These lessons will help draw kids into God's Word and closer to Jesus.

Youth and College This class explores one book of the Bible at a time, covering the entire Bible over a 6 year period. Students will gain a thorough knowledge of Scripture, aiding them as they follow Jesus.

John 3:16 This adult Sunday School class will be a discussion-based class covering Max Lucado’s John 3:16. Participants will read a chapter of the book between each class session.
John 3:16 will run from October 3 to November 21. Participants may consider attending the Exploring the Bible class until October 3.

Children and Prayer This adult Sunday School class will focus on developing children and families’ faith at home. Participants will occasionally read provided material between sessions.

Exploring the Bible This will be a continuation of the current adult Sunday school class. Participants may study a provided lesson between sessions. The class covers topical issues related to the Bible.

Lydian Class and Senior Adult Men These classes offer a more mature perspective for those seeking a topical study of the Scripture. Participants may study a provided lesson between sessions.
God is good. He is goodness in himself, but more than that he is good to us. A profound part of the Gospel is that God, unsatisfied with just being complete within the three persons of the Trinity, decided to extend his loving, good nature to a creation of people whom he wanted to commune with forever. In spite of sin, in spite of ignorance, in spite of blatant rejection of the good and the holy on our part God had has persisted in his goodness to us.
God is good. This has been a trying year for us in many ways as a church. We, like most families and institutions, have struggled financially. We’ve also, perhaps as a consequence of our uncertainty and disgust with the economy around us, struggled spiritually. It is the witness of Scripture that God provides for his people in times of great uncertainty and trial; God will meet and exceed our needs when we remain faithful to the work he has called us to.
God is good. Last Sunday we had an impromptu revival. Our financial situation was dire, and was matched by a spiritual uncertainty and apathy in the direction of our church. However, God’s Spirit moved in such a way that hearts were changed, tears were shed, and we left with a sense of hope and an expectation of God’s blessing on us in days to come.
God is good. Next Sunday will be very special for our church. We’ll celebrate the accomplishments of our children and youth in all that they have done this summer from camps to VBS. We’ll celebrate with two new brothers in Christ who have come to be baptized. We will celebrate the presence of our newest members who have come in recent days. We will celebrate the sacrifice Christ made for us in the observance of the Lord’s Supper. Most of all, we will celebrate the good God who continues to bless us with life, finances, and the grace to lead us in using both.
