Sunday School

Sunday School provides an opportunity for our children to learn about Christian values and beliefs, Christian living, discipleship, stewardship, and serving others. Excellent teachers aid children in Bible study that is designed to help them discover God’s truths.


Sunday School for Nursery through 6th grade meets in-person each Sunday at 9:45 am.

Online lessons are also available each week on our private "1st Kids Club" Facebook page. Contact Kelly Brinson at for access.



Mid-week Lessons & Activities are online for Winter/Spring 2021

(email for access)

Our Discipleship program is designed to teach children about Jesus and
to help them learn key passages and verses in the Bible.
We take this knowledge and apply it in ministry through music and missions.

Preteen Ministry

Vision Statement: To give preteens a place of their own where they can grow in their relationship
with Christ and with each other.

Preteen ministry is a special ministry just for our fifth and sixth graders – a bridge between Children’s ministry and Youth ministry. Preteens need a place where people understand their unique needs and cater ministry to their abilities. 

Our preteens meet weekly in Sunday School.  They also meet the last Sunday afternoon of each month for Bible study, fellowship, and games.  Special activities and trips, specifically designed for this group, are planned on a regular basis.  Activities include retreats, summer camps, and fellowship trips.


Preteens meet in the Route 56 room in the B Building. Sunday School is each Sunday morning at 9:45. 

Preteens meet every fourth Sunday from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM.


The Church shall be a dynamic spiritual body, missionary in spirit, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to share Christ with and minister to as many people as possible in our Church, community, and throughout the world.
