Education

We Learn About Being Servants For Christ in our Education Program.

Sunday School Classes meet at 10:10 a.m. - 11:10 a.m. (Sept.- May) for all ages. We welcome your presence and encourage your participation in these small-group experiences of Christian growth and caring relationships. If you don't find a group that seems to be what you are looking for, please call our Christian Education Coordinator (Rose Rodriguez) at the church office - 258-0119.

Children's Sunday School (STEPS - Stories Told, Experienced, Practiced and Shared) - Our "Rotation Model" curriculum has been developed with your child's level of understanding in mind. This is a priority ministry. Our age-based program is available for kids from toddlers through High School. They all meet Sunday mornings in our Education Wing connected to the church at 10:10am.

     We also have a week-long Vacation Bible School for children in the summer.

Wednesday JAMZ (Jesus and Me Zone)- Children in grades Kindergarten through 5th meet Wednesdays from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm as they have fun "Jamming" as Christians.

Middle School Youth - Our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders gather every Wednesday evening from 6:00 - 7:00, in the 3rd floor Youth Room, to "actively" learn about their faith. 

Adult Small Group Classes - We also realize the importance of adult Christian Education and so offer classes to suit your needs. They meet in various locations throughout the church, with 2 classes meeting regularly on Sunday mornings from 10:10 - 11:10.  These include: 30 Minutes w / the Bible (Library); & Wesley Class (Heritage Room)

30 Minutes with the Bible starts off each class with some social time.  Classtime is a Christian DVD-based Bible curriculum using topics from presenters (i.e. Adam Hamilton) and then discussing the DVD topic following the approximate 15-minute presentation from the speaker. Topics include discussion on current issues, Methodist doctrine and Bible passages.

Wesley Class is a discussion of current events and issues that are happening in the world today and how the church should or should not be involved.  This class will also use DVD based studies from time to time.

Short-Term & Independent Study Classes - We offer short-term classes and small-group opportunities as they become available, as well as individual study opportunities through our newsletter and other ways.
