Spending time in intentional community is important to us. Weekly Bible Classes are one way that happens here.
Our current listing of Sunday morning adult Bible Classes are (as of August 2016):
*Survey of the Bible
*The Sermon on the Mount
Likewise, our children engage in various activities on Sunday mornings.
A fully staffed nursery is available for children up to age 2 during the hour of prayer/solitude at 9AM each Sunday, the 10AM worship service, and the 11AM class time. During class time, these children transition to “Seeds.” Each week, parents will find “Seeds” a safe and welcoming place for their children. Fully capable teachers guide the young ones in age-appropriate play, song, and art. The name “Seeds” represents the planting of the Word of God deep within a person at an early age.
During the 10AM worship service on Sundays, children 3 years old through 3rd grade attend “Roots.” Just before the sermon, at least two adult leaders guide the children to the Roots room, where the children worship together. Children in Roots worship together and learn about the same text as the larger worship assembly.
Preschoolers and elementary students enjoy their classes during the 11AM hour as well. Through experiential and participatory activities, our aim is to connect the children to God’s love for and work in the world. The Pre-K class focuses on the love of God and his son, Jesus, as well as stories of the Bible through song, storytelling, and hands-on activities. The Elementary class guides children through the Bible on a 3-year sequence.
On Wednesday nights, the preschoolers and elementary students meet together for song, prayer, and learning opportunities. We use a lectionary based curriculum to reinforce the story learned on Sunday mornings in worship. The nursery is open on Wednesday nights, staffed by competent and capable adults.
