Have Sunday school at home!

By Friday each week we'll post all the resources you'll need to do Sunday School at home!  The FAMILY DISCUSSION GUIDE is the place to start.  From there, you can take a look at the STUDENT PAGES (varies by grade - be sure to choose the right ones!).  Finally, take a look at the CRAFT/ACTIVITY PAGE that has been prepared.


We're also producing a number of video messages to help equip you along this journey of faith:

  • Molly Clarke will be providing an overview of the lesson and the craft for both children and parents
  • Pastor Kurt will be providing a brief "hello" to kids each Sunday, emphasizing the main message of the Sunday School Bible Story
  • Early in the week, Pastor Kurt will provide a "Grown-Up" video message to parents designed to equip them to think through the Bible lesson before engaging the kids

We encourage you to continue the family habit of children's Christian education on Sunday morning.  A great time to do the lesson is before or after the 10am live-streamed worship service.  With that being said, feel free to use these materials at whatever time works best for your family. 


Check the pages below each week for new resources!
