As a faith community that was founded in 1900 originally as a Sunday School, our mission revolves around teaching the next generation and supporting its families. We provide both nursery care and opportunities for children from age 3 through 5th grade to participate in and learn about the Christian faith.

Registration

The first time one of your children attends Church School, we will ask that you complete a registration form (one form per family). The teachers will use this information to track enrollment, to communicate with families, and to note any special concerns (such as allergies).

Because the program has a defined structure, we ask that children arrive by 9:20 am and they be picked up promptly at the end of Adult Education (10:15 am).
All Other Classes Children will begin the 10:30 am worship with their families and then will follow their teachers to their respective classrooms after the 'Word with Children.' Please pick up your child from their classroom after the service ends.
