The mission of the Sunday School is to enlist the unchurched and to fully equip members through weekly study of God’s word so that we may become disciples, fully equipped with the word of God for the purpose of evangelism in accordance with the Great Commission.
Our Sunday School is grounded firmly in the Word of God, centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ and prepared to teach and serve a diverse, intergenerational community of disciples as we grow in the knowledge of Christ and bear witness to God's love within our congregation, local community, and throughout the world as directed by the Holy Spirit.
