On Sunday mornings, students and teachers join their faith family for the first 15 minutes of worship and then move to classrooms for Faith Formation.
Our Faith Formation classes (our name for Sunday School) combine fun activities with Scripture and life lessons. Classes are separated by age with multiple teachers in each class to ensure a safe and well-supervised environment. Children under 3 years always have fun playing in our nursery, which is open to families during worship. Our Safe Child Manual is used to train all volunteers who work with our children and youth.
Our younger kids meet every week for class arranged by grade: nursery, pre-k-1st grade, 2nd-3rd grade, and 4th-6th grade. Our 7th-12th graders meet on the second Sunday of each month for class, while attending worship the other weeks. Our current classroom curriculum is Seasons of the Spirit, you can learn more about it here.
We are excited to introduce a new monthly, all children and youth aged, Faith Formation class entitled GIFT: Growing In Faith Together. GIFT will be lead by Pastor Peggy in the Chapel using the curriculum of Godly Play®. The goal of Godly Play® is to teach children and adults the art of using religious language and to help them become fully aware of the mystery of God's presence in their lives. You can learn more about Godly Play® here.
The Faith Formation year kicks off in September with Rally Day and ends in June with Bible Jeopardy and our All-Church Picnic.
