The Youth Sunday School class, for grades 6-12, is designed to prepare our young people for the Christian life. The class combines discipleship and study, with fun and thoughtful discussions about how to take the love the of the church into the wider world. During the pandemic, the youth are meeting regularly with various check-ins throughout the week. Youth Sunday School is led by Brian Hall and April Pavis-Shroeder.
Fall 2020: Please keep an eye out for an email from your leaders Brian Hall and April Pavis-Shroeder. We’ll be asking for feedback on how you want to engage this year. We’re also planning an in person, physically-distanced Youth Group meet-up. We will discuss ideas and plans for the year for keeping engaged with one another. We can’t wait to “see” you!
RBC Kids, 9:30am via Zoom on 2nd and 4th Sundays
1st-5th Grade Class, Sundays at 9:30am via Zoom – The Sunday School class for children in first grade through fifth grade allows kids to participate in age-appropriate activities designed to help them learn more about the Bible and how to use the Bible as a guide and resource for daily living. Teachers help the children think of Jesus as the revelation of God’s unconditional love and help each child see church as a community of caring persons. They encourage children to think for themselves as they strive to develop their own personal and dynamic faith in God and in Jesus. Children’s Sunday School meets online on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 9:30am and is led by Beth Moffett, Tara Cruzan, and substitute Geneva Pope.
Preschool & Kindergarten, Sundays at 9:30am via Zoom – Sunday School for preschoolers (age 3 – kindergarten) helps children know they are loved by God and our church. They follow Bible-based lessons, create crafts, and act our stories. Preschoolers and kindergarteners meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 9:30am via Zoom. Teachers are Meaghan Manley, Susan Shaw, and substitute Patti Brockmeier.
When we are meeting in person all Sunday School classes are at 9:45am. Childcare for infants and toddlers is also available during this time, for parents who attend their own classes. Their separate child care area is entered through Room #125. After Sunday School, children from birth through Kindergarten ages may remain in the child care area: Paid childcare workers, along with rotating volunteers, supervise those areas each Sunday. In addition to individual attention, the staff and volunteers offer safe, age-appropriate play materials and activities for all in their care.
