Sunday Activities


Sunday school is a wonderful learning opportunity in an informal setting. Pull up an easy chair to listen and discuss.  Lucy Jacob leads discussion on, "The New Testament" written by Professor Bart Ehrman.   There are 24 lessons presented via DVD followed by discussion. This class meets in the Meeting Room. 


Sunday School is for children from age five up through the sixth grade. Children Sunday school begins with children participating in the worship service.  After the “Children’s Message” at about 10:50 a.m. they are escourted by their teacher to the Sunday School room.


A nursery, staffed by an adult, is also available during the worship service.  This is located at the northwest corner of the fellowship hall and is for infants and children up to the age of four.


Snacks and drinks are usually served immediately after the service. It’s a time to relax, recharge, and make and renew friendships. On some special Sundays there are meals following worship. Everyone who worships with us is invited and encouraged to stay after worship to enjoy this time of food and fellowship.
