Church school takes place from 9:00 to 10:00 AM and typically runs from the Sunday after Labor day through the second Sunday in June. We welcome new students all year long. There is no fee for any of our classes. Registration is a simple process and may be done the first Sunday a child attends. You may access and print out a copy of the registration form from this website.
As part of the church school experience we have a special gathering time which rotates activities such as music, mission projects, crafts, lessons on stewardship or other topics for the first 10-15 minutes. This meets in the Wesley Building (adjacent to the church) and is for for 3 yr. olds through 6th graders. The 2 year olds go directly to their classrooms at 9:00.
The elementary classrooms are in the Wesley Building, where parents will pick up their children after church school. The classrooms and teachers are very welcoming. We currently have a high teacher to student ratio which allows teachers to focus on the uniqueness of each child.
The 2 yr. olds have a friendly room filled with playthings. A typical session might include music, a craft, story and snack.
The 3&4 yr. olds through 4th graders use the "Grow, Proclaim, Serve" curriculum, new this year from Cokesbury.
For 2 months during the winter quarter, the 1st-4th graders study "faith basics". Over a period of 4 years, each grade group will have spent in depth study on the following topics: Learning to Use Their Bible, Worship Skills, The Sacraments, Prayer.
The 5th&6th graders use the "Tweens" curriculum also from Cokesbury.
The combined Jr. High and Sr. High classes use an assortment of United Methodist approved curriculum and discuss topics of relevance to their age groups.
Adult classes meeting during the church school hour are listed on their own page.
Volunteers working with children and youth have completed a volunteer application form, had references checked and have attended a one hour course on child protection.
