When and where does Sunday School Start and End?
There is a Sunday School Session concurrent with each Sunday morning Worship Service at 9:00 am and 10:30 am.
Preschool children can be dropped off in the classroom (Room 209 for school-year; Room 14 for summer) before the service begins or sit with parents for beginning of the service like the older children. There will be someone from the Preschool class to meet children when they leave the service for Sunday School.
Children in the Kindergarten through Middle School sit with their families for the beginning of worship. After the Children’s Message, those who choose can meet up with their teachers just outside the sanctuary’s main doors and go to their Sunday School classes. Children are also welcome to stay in Worship with their parents. In the summer, the Middle School class doesn’t meet.
Sunday School sessions at 9:00 and 10:30 run until 10:05 and 11:35, respectively. Parents of children in 3rd Grade or younger are asked to pick up their children from their classrooms. During the School-year, these classrooms are on the second floor. Follow signs in the hallways. During the summer, these children are in Lehman Hall (gym).
During the School-Year Program, our classes are:
- Preschool - Age 3, potty trained through year before Kindergarten

- Sandbox Set: age 3 (potty trained) to entering Kindergarten. These children meet in room 12 in hallway behind Fellowship Hall, at the start of worship.
- Playground Pack: entering 1st to 5th Grades. These children sit with their parents for the beginning of worship. After the service, these children are picked up in Lehman Hall (gym).
