CHRISTIAN EDUCATION PROGRAMS

 
Year long study for all Christian Education areas Pre-kindergarten through Adults.

BELIEVE connects the Bible with WHAT we believe, WHY we believe, and how to stay true to our faith.    

The Goal of our Christian Education programs is to teach God's Word as celebrated in the Bible and to teach how those sacred values become a part of our everyday life. Youth of all ages assist in worship service as scripture and prayer readers, music leaders, acolytes, and ushers.
Christian Education programs begin September 9, 2017 and run through May 20, 2018.
