Jesus said in Mathew 19:14, “Let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to people who are like these children.”
Our Early Childhood Sunday School classroom welcomes children from ages 3-5 with all abilities. During each class, our story for the week is incorporated into many hands-on experiences including gross motor, fine motor, communication and cognitive activities. Children learn best through the world around them, so we aren‘t afraid to jump in and get our hands messy along the way! Children come to learn about Jesus but also end up learning the importance of sharing, routines, and frienship in a safe, nurturing and Christian environment.
