A Sunday School program is offered each year starting in the fall and running through spring.  A variety of stories, songs, and activities are used to teach the lessons which coincide with the church’s weekly Bible readings.  All ages can attend.  Join in anytime. Call the church office for more information.  

Confirmation is a two year program for 7th & 8th graders.  The class gathers weekly during the school year, on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:00 PM.  Small and large group activities and multimedia are used as teaching tools.  Students participate in service projects within the congregation and in the community. Please complete our Confirmation Registration Form to enroll in the program.
