Sunday School for Children (Sept. - May)

The children ages 4 years through 4th grade are using "Deep Blue" in Sunday School. Deep Blue is the new awe-inspiring resource for children which includes adventure, exciting stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games-all combined into a living–faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today! "In the depths of who I am I rejoice in God my savior." (Luke 1:47)  5th and 6th graders are using a curriculum called "Submerge," geared toward older elementary children transitioning into adolesence.
