Why Sunday School?

At the very heart of congregational life in the church, Sunday School plays a vital role in fulfilling the mission of the Church of the Nazarene to make Christlike disciples in the nations.

Children  There is a class available for your child! With age-appropriate Bible and/or character lessons, crafts, and other activities, your child will enjoy this time of learning at their own level.

Teens  We have a Sunday School class available for ages 6th-12th grades. The lessons are geared more toward challenges that today’s teens experience, but with an emphasis on how to face those challenges in ways that would be pleasing to God.

Adults*  We have two adult classes available: The first class is a set in a more traditional format, with scheduled lessons coming out of a booklet provided by the Nazarene church. The second class is set in a more relaxed format, with lesson series being more flexible–either a verse-by-verse Book of the Bible study, or out of a book that encourages a deeper relationship with God and with others.

* We do not have age limitations on our adult Sunday School classes.
