Sunday school - A wonderful place to learn of God's love!

"Children - The spiritual thoughts and representatives of Life, Truth, and Love." Mary Baker Eddy, "Science and Health with key to the Scriptures" page 582

Our Sunday School meets the same time as church, Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. Students will find Sunday School an informal, lively, inspirational place to learn to know and love God. It is a place to apply His loving, healing laws into their own experience through the study of the Scriptures including the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, and the Lord's Prayer. Young students are taught many Bible stories and learn of each story's deeper meaning and spiritual significance. They also learn about the wonderful nature of God and the synonyms of God (Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth, and Love.) Even the youngest of students can learn how to pray effectively.  Older students later learn to more throughly study the Bible in harmony with Science and Heath with key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. (These two books are our foundation for learning how to apply and demonstrate Christian Science.)

The Sunday School Service

The service begins with students and teachers singing a hymn which is then followed by a few moments of silent prayer and then the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer. Individual classes are then organized into small groups, according to age. Each class is then taught by a well-qualified, loving teacher who provides spiritual guidance and encourages individual participation. At the end of the hour, all students again come together and conclude the service with a final hymn.

On the first Sunday of each month, the Sunday School students and their teachers proceed into the church auditorium and join the entire congregation in the conclusion of the service with a final hymn, the reading of the Scientific Statement of Being and readings from l John.

The Sunday school Nursery

Our bright, cheery nursery is available for young ones not yet ready for Sunday School. It is lovingly staffed by members experienced in caring for small children and infants. The nursery has two cribs, a diaper-changing area and abundant toys and activities to deep youngsters busy and entertained while parents attend church services.
