Weekly Events

On Sundays

Sunday School
Every Sunday at 9:00am.
Students are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Sunday morning provides opportunities for students 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, students will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples. Our curriculum is based off the Revised Common Lectionary so will align with the worship and preaching texts each week.
