Sunday School begins at 9:45am (after the 8:45am service) and ends at 10:45am, shortly before the 11:00am service, so that families may attend the worship service of their choice. Adult Sunday School is offered at the same time as the classes for children. Methodists have a long tradition of believing in the importance of Sunday School. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement in eighteenth-century England, was deeply concerned about the process of shaping persons into Christians. Wesley recognized that persons of all ages had to be taught what Christians believe and how Christians live.
Sunday School classes are age-specific from the 2 and 3 year-old class through senior high. Childcare is available during the Sunday School hour for children under the age of 2.

The Preschool and Kindergarten class meets in room E-106. This class helps our young students see, hear and live their belief in God. Each Sunday is filled with stories, games, music, and crafts all designed to help our children grow to know God better.
