Our Christian Education program strives to nurture the spiritual growth of individuals of every age, to immerse both children and adults in the love and knowledge of God, especially as revealed through Jesus Christ, and to help them respond in loving mission to the world.
Christian education is a lifelong process. Our curricula emphasize knowledge of the Bible as well as Christian character building.
During the academic year, school-aged children begin each Sunday in the worship service where they participate in various roles. After the children’s message they go to Sunday School where the Godly Play curriculum is taught by several teachers. In Sunday school, students participate in special offerings and mission projects, and occasionally all classes meet together to study special themes, such as Advent, Lent and other subjects involved with worship and Christian life. On Christian Education Sunday, students lead the congregation in worship.
Adult Studies include lecture series, Bible and book studies, video series, and discussion groups. Intergenerational events include an Advent celebration, Christmas pageant, Mardi Gras party, and an all-church picnic.
Jody Pow provides childcare year round during the worship service. She is mother to four homeschooled children and always has plenty of age-appropriate stories, games and crafts for all children. She provides a stable, warm and welcoming presence in the nursery.
