Sunday Morning Program for Families
Because we believe in learning by doing, and most important part of our religious education is participation, with all ages, in the first part of regular worship services. Then during Sunday school, young people learn and play with people their own age. Feel free to ask Sunday school teachers what they did this week. If you would like to review curriculum materials that are not online, please call Dan Harper.
9:30 Sunday morning, September through April
Child care (for infants, toddlers, and young children) — Loving and safe care with our professional child care providers. Children who are over 3 and toilet-trained may go to Red class (if your 3-year-old is not yet toilet-trained, they may be in the class as long as you are on call via cell phone if toileting is necessary). To meet our child care providers, click here.
Children from K-8 may choose to attend Sunday School during the service. For more information about Sunday School, please visit the Nursery-Preschool, Elementary School, Middle School, and High School pages for an overview of the curriculum.
We also have a lesson-by-lesson curriculum plan that teachers refer to as they plan their classes. Teachers may diverge from this plan to accommodate the interests of their class. To see the 2018-2020 curriculum plan online, click here.
The Curriculum Subcommittee of the Children and Youth Religious Education Committee is currently reviewing all curriculum books used in Sunday school. The Subcommittee will be rolling out changes in the curriculum over the next couple of years. If you would like to comment on your child’s experience with any curriculum or lesson, please contact Greg Becker, chair of the Subcommittee.
Spring project, late March through May
The spring project looks more like summer camp than Sunday school. All school-aged children meet together at the beginning of the session, then kids get to choose which activity they want to do that week. Click here for more information, as well as this year’s planned activity.

Summer Sunday school is less formal, and emphasizes having fun and building community. In 2019, summer Sunday school will run from June 3 through mid-August. For more about summer Sunday school, click here.
