Spirit of Hope offers Sunday School classes for children who are in Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Classes meet on Sunday mornings from Kick Off Rally Day in September through mid-May.
Each week children gather in worship with their families for song and “Word with the children.” All kids meet teachers at the back of the Sanctuary where they will be escorted to their group gathering. After Sunday School all children are picked up by parents in the Fellowship Hall, the large room on the lower level, where we will have a closing song and prayer together.
In Sunday School, kids will learn core Bible stories through various activities to tie in to the week’s readings.
We are always looking for help!
- Class leaders – stay with a group of children for the entire program year. This could be 2-4 people sharing leadership on a rotating basis.
- Special guests – you are invited to be a special guest at Sunday school. Come share a talent, activity and your faith story with the children.
