Sunday School for Youth

As we strive to support the social distancing efforts resulting from the Coronavirus, for the time being we are offering Sunday school electronically, rather than in person.

Sunday School Music

    Earlier this year, when we were meeting for Sunday school in person, the Rev. Robert Masenheimer (Pastor Bob) our Minister of Music, led the youth in music at the beginning of Sunday school.  Now that we are unable to meet in person, he has recorded the following songs for your use at home.  We hope that youth (and adults) will enjoy this music in their homes.  The first link is for the video of Pastor Bob playing and the second link is a pdf document with the lyrics.

Sermons4Kids and Ministry to Children

    Over the summer we will continue to offer Sunday school lessons through Sermons4Kids and Ministry to Children.  Each week there will be a Children's Sermon of the Week lesson that is built around the seasons of the church and based upon the church lectionary calendar.  These children's sermons will include an object lesson and children's activities like Bible coloring pages, games, and crafts.
