Growing in Spirit, Living as Disciples,
Serving God's World

Christian Education

Grace offers a variety of Christian education opportunities...

Sunday morning for classes for children, youth and adults begin at 9:15 a.m.

The Confirmation Class meets in Room 10 with teachers Ed and Cindi Bryant, and Cramer Gilmore. They use the "Confirm Not Conform" curriculum.

Christian Education for Adults

How would you be different if you spent a year in the company of Jesus? That's the question that inspired this year's Adult Discipleship course, “A Year with Jesus.”  We'll consider the world of Jesus of Nazareth and how the different Gospel writers interpreted his ministry, and then try to walk imaginatively in his footsteps through his baptism, early ministry in Galilee and beyond, and journey to Jerusalem. The focus of the class will be discipleship: What does Jesus continue to say to us, his 21st century disciples, and how does our encounter with him change us?

College and Career Group – a young adult discussion group. Led by George Towery and Kim Hatfield, the class meets in Room 12.

Christian Education for Children and Youth

Grades K-2 meet in Room 2 with teacher Nancy Machado. This class uses the lectionary based curriculum Whirl.

Grades 3-6 meet in Room 12 with teachers Kathy Giese, Joe and Greta Tosi-Miller, and Beth Jenkins Smith. This class also uses the lectionary-based curriculum Whirl.

Junior High meets in Room 14 with Kent Ford. This class uses Echo the Story, a narrative curriculum that explores the bible through storytelling, reflection, and conversation.

Senior High meets in the Youth Director's Office, in the tower hallway with teachers Donna Lucas, Penny Newsome, and Tim Stryker. They explore matter of faith using the Faith Questions curriculum. They will begin the year with "Grace and Gratitude."

For our youngest children…

Our church nursery is open from 9:00 a.m to noon (or the end of the service). We have experienced and loving caregivers.

Following the Time for Children in the 10:30 a.m. worship service, we offer a separate opportunity for our young ones.

Preschoolers are invited to join in Play ‘n’ Worship, where they will have a short Bible story and activity. The storyteller will escort them to their classroom for Play ‘n Worship time, and then to the nursery, where parents may pick them up following the service.
