Mission Statement

Grounded in God’s Word, we foster a loving environment through worship, instruction, and friendship, which prepares our children and families to be faithful followers of Christ.

Sunday School

All children from age three through fifth grade are invited to attend Sunday School during the school year. We offer three classes that are designed to meet children at their developmental stages. Each class has a team of two volunteer teachers that will work with the children throughout the year. The two lead teachers alternate months to help foster confidence, trust and consistency. Also in the classroom are teaching assistants who help the leader facilitate the lesson and encourage imagination, exploration, and curiosity. Sunday school is held from 9:45 – 10:35am, and children return to their families at the Peace. There is no Sunday School on the first Sunday of each month due to Family Worship.
