Sunday Morning Church School
First Church Sunday school classrooms are always buzzing with excitement! Students meet weekly to learn about and interact with Bible stories, led by our church school teachers. Students are grouped by age and grade level. All classes are taught by church members, using the SPARK Curriculum. In the Fall, our children focus on the Old Testament and in the Spring, the focus is on the New Testament stories. Each week, teachers work to engage students, create interactive lessons, and bring the Bible stories to life! If you wonder if our church is a good fit for your family, we welcome visitors to join a classroom and try it out!
We are so grateful for our wonderful volunteers in our church family, especially our teachers who give of their time to care for the next generation of First Church! All classroom Sunday school teachers are church members and volunteers. Every teacher attends training in Safe Church policies and use SPARK curriculum and training videos to ensure all students have a safe, fun, and educational experience.

How can a hand full of change or wadded dollar bill help make a difference on the other side of the globe? Our children participate in Heifer Project International. Children bring an offering to their Sunday school classrooms and a basket is passed. Their contributions are totaled and classes choose an animal or plant to purchase from Heifer International, which sends it to impoverished areas of the world. Visits to the nearby Heifer farm are also coordinated by the Christian Education Committee. For more information, please see their website: http://www.heifer.org
Sunday school is held most Sundays between mid-September and mid-May. Students are excused from the 10:00am worship service following a Children’s Sermon, led by the minister or Director of Christian Education. Sunday school continues until adults complete the worship service and loved ones pick their child up from the Sunday school classroom.
Registration is ongoing and children are always welcome to join a classroom mid-year. Our registration form is provided online and can be brought to church, dropped off at our church office, or mailed.
