Why Attend Sunday School?


  • Studying the Scripture keeps one from sin.
    Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. NIV
  • Studying the Scripture brings peace to one's heart.
    Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. NIV
  • Studying the Scripture produces the right kind of personality (one learns how to live victoriously).
  • Studying the Scripture produces true education. It trains one's mind and heart along the line of things eternal.

Sunday School meets at 9 AM every Sunday Morning

First Christian Church believes very strongly in on-going Christian Education, not only for the young, but for the adults as well.  Classes are available every Sunday for children and youth from Kindergarten through high school.  The curriculum is bible-based and follows the lectionary along with our worship services.  All of the teachers are enthusiastic and encouraging and work hard to prepare young hearts for a closer walk with God.  Continuing Christian Education is also very important for adults and young adults as well.  Below is a list of the adult classes and the teachers or class leaders. 

We invite all, to join us this Sunday for Worship and Sunday School.  Our coffee bar is open in the fellowship hall if you want to get a special treat before joining our Sunday School sessions.  Ask the greeter at the front door for directions to the classes or call the church office at 692-1421.

Children and Youth Sunday School

reading lessonIn our children and youth classes we are learning about our forefathers and mothers in our faith!  Parents, ask your children what they know about Abraham and Sarah; and Isaac and Rebekah.  Coming in upcoming weeks:  Jacob and Rachel, Joseph, and Moses. 

Why is faith history important?  Just as knowing our family roots and the values that our family ancestors lived by keeps us better grounded with a sense of belonging, so does knowing our faith ancestors reinforce the kind of faithful living in ourselves that leads to good decisions, healthy living, and a sense of belonging to God.
