and if you honor it by not going your own way, then you will find your joy in the Lord!"

FIRST LIGHT: JESUS AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD

MARRIAGE PODCAST FOR SMART PEOPLE
January 9 - May 15 | Learning Center on the 2nd floor (in person only)

Unfortunately, marriage does not come with an instruction manual. High expectations often lead to disappointment and communication breakdowns. Did you know communication is the No. 1 challenge married couples face? The Marriage Podcast for Smart People (click here) is designed to help busy couples move away from conflict and unhappiness to build a marriage they will love today and treasure for a lifetime. In every episode, co-hosts Caleb and Verlynda Simonyi-Gindele examine secular research and integrate it with a Christian worldview to share actionable steps every couple can take to strengthen their marriage.

For Youth

CLICK HERE FOR 6TH-12TH GRADE PROGRAMS (Youth Room, 3rd floor)

For Children

Children, 2 yrs old through 5th grade, are invited to Sunday school classes. Classes are divided into age groups. Together they study the Old and New Testaments and learn how the stories relate to their lives today. Registration is encouraged!

2 AND 3 YEAR OLD CLASS (must be 2 by 8/31/2021)
The Frolic curriculum is a new play-based curriculum that helps young children experience Bible stories and faith-based storybooks in meaningful, memorable ways. Throughout the year we will journey through both Old and New Testaments stories, including the Christmas and Aster stories.

4 YEARS OLD - 3RD GRADE
Using the Spark Classroom curriculum, each lesson follows a four-part sequence: Gather, Open the Bible, Activate Faith and Send. Kids will learn at their level with a focus on hands-on learning. Children are divided into 2 groups, 4 yrs – kindergarten and 1st – 3rd grade. Throughout the year we will explore stories from the Old and New Testaments. These lessons help kids navigate the story and begin to compare what they learn to their own lives. Classes meet on the second floor of the church.

4th AND 5TH GRADE – CHALLENGER CLASS
Children, by this age, are beginning to wonder what it means to be a Reformed Presbyterian and how what they have learned in Sunday school impacts their own lives. We will study who John Calvin is and how the Reformed Presbyterian Church was founded, the books of the Bible, Psalm 23 and the Lord’s Prayer. The highlight of the semester is a weekend retreat to Tickfaw State Park November 19 – 21. The theme this year is Who is Jesus? And how do I follow him?

NURSERY CARE (0-3 YEARS OLD)

Our experienced sitter staff invites all children under the age of five into our fully equipped nursery and playroom. Our classrooms meet all State requirements and we strive to maintain a safe and enriching environment for our youngest visitors. The staff is trained on church regulations and guidelines. Children 0 – 3 will meet in the Bear Classroom which is the corner classroom on the first floor.
