Vacation Bible School
Mark your calendars! Vacation Bible School will be the week of July 8th – 12th, from 4:30pm to 7:45pm. Dinner will be included again this year.
Our theme is the Everywhere Fun Fair: Where God’s World Comes Together. We will be discovering how to be better neighbors and “traveling” around the world visiting different countries.
Information about registrations will be provided here and in other church publications as the actual time nears.
See you there!
Sunday School classes are available for all children and youth during the Sunday 9am service.
Learning about Christ’s love is happening for All God's Children.
Toddlers and twos:
This age group meets for both Childcare and age-appropriate lessons and music in PRINCE HALL during the 9 am worship service. There are bible stories told with story boards, games, crafts and other play to go with each story.
Sunday School Classes for Children & Youth meet on the lower level of the new building, departing from the 9 am worship service with their teachers immediately following the Children's Moment.
3 years -1st grade:
Sarah and Phil Elliott teach this class using the United Methodist One Room Schoolhouse curriculum from Cokesbury, as well as some Godly Play stories. Learning to pray and sharing their joys and concerns are part of each week’s class, as the children learn to share and think of others too.
2nd – 5th grades:
Beth and Matt Williams teach this group using the United Methodist One Room Schoolhouse curriculum from Cokesbury. It has been found to be very interactive for the students.
All students in this class are requested to bring their bible with them every week. We normally use the Adventure Bible in the class. I have bibles in the classroom for the 2nd graders and for visitors. (If your child is in the 3rd grade or higher and never received a bible from the church, we will get them one.) This curriculum lends itself to more exploration and use of the bible on a weekly basis, and we are continuing to learn how to use our bibles.
Starting with the Serenity Prayer and reciting the current bible verse, Rich Poynter leads the middle and high school youth using the LinC curriculum as a jumping off point. The lessons offer issues and topics that young people wrestle with on a daily basis. Using biblical references and discussion questions, everyone has a chance to share their opinion and learn how to respect each other. The students are also free to bring up and issue in their own lives that they need to discuss, and they are supported by the group.
Child Protection Program - screening of all involved volunteers
