Christian education is at the very heart of the church. In the educational process the Spirit of God encounters people of all ages so that they are nurtured in faith, grow in knowledge and experience, and are inspired and empowered to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

This call to discipleship compels us to share our faith and serve others in the home, the community, and in God’s world.

Growing with God
Sunday school at Advent is for children age 3 through grade 6. Classes are held at 9:30 am beginning the first Sunday after Labor Day in September, and continuing through June.

Our goal is to facilitate and foster a long term relationship with God. We discuss practical applications of scripture as they relate to children today, and use personal journal reflections to further develop connections with the scripture. We incorporate worship involvement, singing, and community service into our program.

Our class overlaps with the worship service; the children learn the scripture lessons at a developmentally appropriate level and then enter the service after the sermon.

Curriculum: We use the Whirl curriculum in our program. Whirl follows the common lectionary, so the children are learning from the same scripture readings as their parents every week.

Registration is ongoing for the duration of classes, the link is found below.
