Sunday School Rejoice! Mission Statement: "Changing Lives ... Reflecting Christ"

In Sunday School, we strive toward this mission statement through the following values:

  • Fun: Kids at Rejoice! Sunday Church School laugh, smile, play, think, challenge, sing, and want to invite their friends. 

  • Safety:  Kids at R! SCS feel welcome and physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe.  They can trust and freely love their fellow students and adult friends. 

  • Child-Targeted Lessons:  Kids of every age at R! SCS are engaged and believe each lesson was made just for them.

  • Creative and Interactive Bible Teaching:   Kids experience, rather than just hear about, the Bible, our holy Scripture. 

  • Discipleship:  Kids learn from, appreciate, and look up to the adults and older kids they meet at R! SCS.

Sunday School is offered at the following times:  All Sunday School classes are a food free environment.  Out of safety and respect for children with food sensitivities and allergies, no food is allowed in the lower level north (LLN) Sunday School classrooms.

  • 8:00 am: 3 years old to 5th grade; Middle School and Senior High

  • 9:30 am: 3 years old to 5th grade; Middle School and Senior High

  • 11:00 am: 3 years old to 5th grade

A child must be 3 years old on or before July 31st, 2014, to register for SCS

Classes begin in September on the Sunday after Labor Day, and end in May on the Sunday after Mother's Day. No classes are held on Christmas, New Year's or Easter.

 

Please fill out a Sunday Church School registration form prior to or upon your first visit to Sunday School.

 

All children are welcome; if you are new to Rejoice!, just ask someone at the Welcome Center and they will assist you in finding the right Sunday School classroom.

 



 

Children's Ministry
