Children meet in the choir room in the hallway of the sanctuary building and are escorted by teachers to classrooms on the first floor and in the nearby Wesley building behind the main building. Youth meet upstairs in the Annex across from the main church office. Adults meet upstairs in the conference room.

The 1st and 3rd Sundays

During first Sunday of each month, we suspend Sunday school so that the whole family can worship together.  Research shows that a child’s ability to develop a life-changing faith and relationship with God increases dramatically when they get to see faith modeled and lived out by older adults and especially their parents.

The third Sunday of the month, (also known as our Missions Sunday) after the children’s moment, the children go out of the sanctuary and up the stairs to the Talbert building for a special service project. Sometimes we pack lunches for the poor and homeless and sometimes we create “go-bags” full of snacks and basic necessities for the homeless we see around town.  Whatever we do that particular month, we find ways to creatively help children experience what it’s like to love God by loving others.

On every other Sunday, we have “traditional Sunday school” in classrooms broken up by school grade.  We are using Whirl kids curriculum on Sunday mornings in our classes.  This is a new exciting curriculum that includes adventures, exciting stories, art, animated video storytelling and active games. 

 

A Few Words About Our Ministry Ethos

We are strong believers of helping to support and empower parents.  This includes providing practical resources and growing opportunities on subjects like building better marriages, becoming the spiritual leaders of one’s children, and learning what it means and looks like to experience a holistically redeemed life in God’s Kingdom here on earth.  Keep an eye on our calendar for opportunities like these to learn and grow as individuals and as a family!

BUILDING BETTER MOMS is here! Registration for Faith Church’s New Mom’s Group is Open:  Please sign up for the 2018-2019 year.
