Church School Programs

VBS-JimJohnson

Nursery Care for infants and 1-yr-olds is offered during worship in the infant nursery (Room 7). Trained teen nursery workers rotate duties with assistance from parents.

Church School: Runs through May, followed by a summer kid’s program.  During the school years, children typically attend the 10 a.m. worship with families, and then leave for class following “Time with Children.” Church school classes are held from 10:15-11:15 a.m. High school youth are encouraged to serve as assistant teachers.

A weekly offering is collected during church school classes. Offering envelopes are available for each child.

Church School Supports “Laundry Love” – The 2016-17 church school offering will benefit the work of a local ministry that helps “do laundry” for people who are struggling financially. A team of volunteers meets at Midway Laundry (14th & Michigan) on the 4th Wed. of each month to sign in guests, help load laundry and “feed quarters” into the machines. They also provide snacks and toiletries as well as activities for children.

Curriculum: We are glad to be using the “Seasons of the Spirit” curriculum in our church school program. It explores the meaning and mystery of the Bible; nurtures the imaginative spirit; offers resources for all ages; and integrates the worship, learning,and serving ministries of the church.

Acolyte Program – 4th and 5th graders serve as acolytes, lighting the altar candles, for Sunday morning worship.

Church School Choirs – Each Sunday during the school year, the church school children have a time for singing/music incorporated into their class time. The church school choir sings in worship regularly led by Ann Berchem and Jennie Andreasen.

Middle High Youth Church School Classes – The 6th, 7th & 8th grade class meets in Room 3 from 10:15-11:15 a.m. and is a companion class to the 9th grade confirmation program.
