Sunday School – Small Groups
Something for Everyone
Toddlers and Babies – (Under 3 years old) Cribs and loving adults keep watch over these precious infants until they become mobile. Play time and children’s stories about Jesus from caring teachers along with a small snack and juice are part of the Sunday School hour. Look for the yellow colored door for babies and toddlers.
Pre-school –(3 – 5 year old) follow a curriculum from Group Ministries to help these pre-school children get acquainted with God and Jesus. Let’s not forget play time and snacks as well. Look for the orange colored door.
Kindergarten – use a Group Ministries curriculum tailored for children that are in their first full year of school. Teachers spend time with lessons that include activities to lead these new school age students in learning about the Bible and Jesus. Look for the turquoise colored door.
1st and 2nd Grade – use Lifeway Gospel Project curriculum using Bible based exercises and study to enable this age group to learn about the Bible, Jesus, and the church as they grow and develop a relationship with the Lord. Look for the red colored door.
3rd through 5th – Teachers energize and challenge these older Elementary age students using Bible stories and studies from Lifeway Gospel Project curriculum. Look for the green colored door.
6th through 12th –These middle and high school students are divided according to age using Smyth & Helwys “LIVE” online curriculum. These studies are aimed at teaching teens the beauty and relevancy of Scripture and how it applies to today’s teens
Young Adults – (Late teens- 20’s) For those out of high school but aren’t yet married with a house, a picket fence, and 2.5 kids, this might be the place for you.

Anyone is welcome but especially those who are looking for a class that isn’t (un-officially) a couples class.
Career Class – (Late 20’s-50’s) This co-ed class utilizes the Smyth and Helwys “Uniform” curriculum. This class is primarily made up of couples in their 20’s to 50’s. Most couples in this class have school age children. This class is located in the Family Life Building.
