Sunday School

This year, the theme of our K-6th grade lessons is the Parables of Jesus.  What better way for our children to learn the lesson Jesus taught than immersing the children in Jesus stories.

Get ready to make art with seeds, making butter, and watch a movie as we learn about and explore the Parable of the Sower.What kind of soil are you?
