Godly Play helps our children to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Join us on Sundays as we play together.

Elementary (1-5th Grade) 

Feasting on the Word for children is a lectionary based curriculum that connects with the church’s lectionary cycle. Once a month, this class will be focused directly on worship and music. This class will help connect the worship experience in a meaningful way with what is going on in church school.

Teacher: Betsy Wilks Shepherds: Linda Walker, Mary Mikell, Maggie Richardson

Middle School (6th to 8th grade) 

We will be using a new service-learning-based approach that will combine lessons from church school into youth group activities, which will occur monthly. The Middle School offering will be used in conjunction with the service learning projects. We will use Faith Practices curriculum produced by the United Church of Christ.

Teachers: Jill Clemmons, Kelly Kerr

Senior High (9th to 12th grade) Gather in Welcome Center
