Summer Sunday School

Sunday, June 5 to Sunday, July 31
9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
4th Floor Gratz Center

Summer Sunday School begins Sunday, June 5 and runs through Sunday, July 31. Classes will only be held during the 9:30 a.m. worship service, and ages and grades will be grouped together differently than they were during the regular school year. Please note that the grades listed below refer to the grade or class that your child just completed--we don't "graduate" until the start of our regular Sunday School year!
Preschool: Room 4B
Kindergarten and First Grade: Room 4D
Second through Fifth Grade: Room 4E
Finally, we are in need of Sunday School teachers over this summer! Even if you are only able to help out for one Sunday, we'd be very grateful for your assistance--our curriculum is easy to pick up and teach, and the classes are a lot of fun. If you’re interested, please contact Matt

So You Have a Three-Year-Old!

If your child turns three by September 1, he or she is ready for a new adventure. We have two Sunday School classes for three-year-olds: the 9:30 a.m. class is just for three-year-olds, while the 11:00 a.m. class combines three- and four-year-olds. Your child may attend either class.

If you have a two-year-old turning three during the year, experience has shown us that it is best to wait until the following fall to begin class. Developmentally, your child will be better able to leave you and enjoy the class. Your child has a lifetime to learn the stories of the Bible. As parents, you can do so much more than any Sunday School class by reading the Bible stories from a children’s Bible, which has stories appropriate in length and content for a preschooler and can introduce him or her to Jesus and his love for us all.

Exceptions are occasionally made for children ready for the three-year-old class, but these are handled by Matt Helms, Associate Pastor for Children and Family Ministry. on a case-by-case basis. If you have concerns about your child’s placement, please contact him (312.573.3362) before taking your child to class.
