Nursery and Toddlers
The professional staff that serves in our nursery and toddler room insures both a safe environment and an always familiar face. Our staff really know children and you’ll find the little ones may just want to stay when it’s time to go home. We follow a “Safe Church” policy in all our Church School rooms.
The Pre-K class is for children ages 3 (3 by Sept. 1 of the church school calendar year, July-Sept.) up to Kindergarten. The program provides a Sunday School experience which includes beginning Bible teachings, Sunday School songs, and learning simple prayers. Teachers use a multi-sensory approach including Bible stories, arts and crafts, posters, coloring activities, snack time with a prayer, and playtime.
Kindergarten – Grade 1
The curriculum used for the lower elementary grades is bible based and incorporates Bible stories, activities, crafts, media, and games into a full faith experience for children. We work with children to help develop the skills to unlock the Bible message and grow their faith.
Our 2nd grade and 3rd grades start looking at the bible in a way that allows them to relate to the parables and stories in an age appropriate manner.
Our 4th grade and 5th grades begin to explore the stories from the bible in a more contemporary setting. It’s important to begin understanding how the bible may be full of old stories, but they can relate to things that are happening in our lives today.
The Middle School Group ( Grades 6, 7 & 8) meets each week on the first floor, where we grapple with the issues of the day using lessons, thought provoking videos, games and exploration of the Bible for help with everyday challenges.
Middle School is an important and challenging time for young people as they try to find who they are and where they fit in the world. This is not a class that preaches, but rather allows the individual in all of us to question and doubt and ask and explore.
