By definition, Sunday School is the “foundational ministry in the local church.” We believe it is one of the best ways to study God’s Word together, fellowship together, and live life together. Sunday School begins each week at 9:40 am. Here are classes offered, the class location, and a short description.
 
PRESCHOOL DEPARTMENT
Our preschool classes are full of fun. Our teachers understand the importance of teaching God’s Word, yet they also know that the children need time to play. Therefore, they masterfully incorporate both elements based upon the age of the children.
 
Bed Babies- Room 109 — Beth Ann Anderson
1 Year Olds- Room 110 — Mike Kilpatrick & Beth Harris
2-3 Year Olds- Room 114 — Donna Harper & Chona Parker
4-5 Year Olds- Room 111 — George Anna Griffin & Walker Williamson
 
CHILDREN’S DEPARTMENT
Our children’s department is for children in first through sixth grades. The Bible Studies for Life curriculum is used, which applies the truth of Scripture to the lives of our children. Children’s Sunday School begins in “The Temple” (Room 106) for upbeat songs, then divides into grade-based classes.
