Sunday School (previously J.A.M Sessions)

Middle School: 10 A.M – Room 201

Middle School Sunday School recognizes that kids are going through the process of discovering who they are. This process brings about tension of desired autonomy, struggles with self-esteem and the search for those similar to them. Now more than possibly ever is it important for kids to have a morally grounded friend circle and to hear that whether they believe it or not, God thinks they are amazing the way they are. This class meets for one hour to watch videos, discuss scripture and share experiences from their lives as they search for God, themselves and their purposes.

High School 10 A.M – Youth Lounge in the Basement

High School uses a new and exciting curriculum called Switch: Don’t Be Different Alone. Switch groups watch videos, engage one another in discussions and make the Bible relevant in their daily living. Switch is led by Mr. Chris Bryant. We’ll save a seat on the couch just for you!
