Sunday School is for all children birth through 8th grade. We meet in the Family Café on Sunday mornings from 9-9:50 a.m. where we sing songs, hear Bible stories, make crafts, act out skits, and other fun faith related activities centered around each week’s theme. We currently use the Narrative Lectionary curriculum “Living the Word.” Parents of young children are encouraged to stay with their child.

Children and Youth Upcoming Activities


Light the Fire Clearwater Forest Summer 2018 Come spend a week (Or two! Or three!) at Clearwater Forest this summer! Our 2018 theme is called “Light the Fire,” and we will be exploring the big ideas surrounding how we can impact the world with the light of Christ. This theme will come to life at camp as we take on big questions like “What if hope is real?” “What if we change the world?” “What if there is more than enough?” and “What if God is bigger?”

They have many one-week programs for campers entering 3rd grade all the way up to those who just graduated high school, and they offer half week programs for families and first-time campers. All camps include activities such as Quest (interactive Bible study), high and low challenges and team building, crafts, games, worship, kayaking, canoeing, and more!
