Curriculum for Children
This year the curriculum, from PC(USA) will help transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grade and gratitude. Each session shares a Bible story that reveals God’s grace for us. Through fun, age-appropriate activities, prayer, and singing, children and their leaders will celebrate the meaning of this grace in their lives as they encounter a living God.

Fidelis – The Present Word, Meets in the Library in the Office Building
A biblical study experience. The class uses “The Present Word, The Adult Student’s Book” published quarterly by the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Bible. While the classes are based on the scripture lesson for that Sunday and the commentary by the authors, the teacher’s class conduct brings out considerable far-reaching discussion, questions, and applicability to today’s cultural experiences. The class is enriched by all participation and welcomes additional members.

Kairos Meets in Room 117, last classroom on the left in the Education Building
Kairos Sunday School Class
Exodus is a compelling narrative of three characters: The God of Israel, who rescues a people in captivity after years of apparent silence; Moses, the leader of Israel, who reluctantly accepts his calling and goes on the become the giver of the Law; and the people of Israel, who struggle to be faithful to God after facing near extinction at the hands of their captors. It is a story about seeking and finding a God who redeems us in our moments of separation and sin. The class is supposedly led by Marcia Noble and Jane Thomas, but the class members and the Holy Spirit carry the discussion through honest questioning and participative engagement. No reading is required, so people can drop in at any point. Come join us as we look at one of the most exciting stories in the Bible!
