Growth & Fellowship
Sunday School - Sunday School is an excellent resource to assist parents in
teaching the Christian faith to their children. Classes begin with age three
and continue through 8th grade. All classes are held in the education wing
towards the "Motel Road" side of our building. A group opening is conducted
beginning at 9:15 and classes conclude at 10:15. Parents of the preschool
class are welcome to "sit in" with their children until their comfort level
grows. Sunday School is offered from the Sunday after Labor Day through the
Sunday before Memorial Day. Please contact Pastor Weinhold for more information.
Adult Bible Class - Sunday morning Adult Bible Class is offered year around.
From September through May class begins at 9:20 and ends at 10:15.
