Sunday School

New Sunday Morning Curriculum – “Feasting on the Word” – Youth are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. The “Feasting on the Word” Curriculum provides opportunities for this age group to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God’s amazing, unconditional love, youth will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples. This curriculum is based off the Revised Common Lectionary so will align with the worship and preaching texts each week.
