Sunday school is offered during the school year following Sunday worship and fellowship time. Classes are available for kids aged preschool – Kindergarten, and first-fifth grade.

Preschool Bibles are presented to children as they enter the Preschool-Kindergarten class, and kid’s Bibles are given to children as they enter the 1st-5th grade class.
