Sunday School class for 3-5 year-olds
There is a Sunday school class for 3-5 year-olds conducted in English with Finnish translation. The focus of the class is to help children to become more familiarized with the Bible stories through story telling, crafts, and games. The curriculum is currently based off the Read and Share Bible and Devotional. Sometimes we ask a parent to attend with their child if the child needs help in assimilating into the group.
Sunday School class for Preschool (Eskari) to 2nd grade
For those who have begun Preschool (Eskari) through to 2nd grade we continue to encourage age appropriate familiarization with the Bible stories while trying also to show how these stories connect to the bigger picture/story of the Bible as well. The curriculum, Explore the Bible, also encourages children to think about how what they are learning applies to their lives. Classes are conducted in English with Finnish translation.
Sunday School class for 3rd-6th grade
For 3rd to 6th graders we want to encourage the children to build on their familiarization with the Bible stories and the big picture/story of the Bible with age appropriate discussion on the subject taught. The curriculum, Explore the Bible, also encourages children to think about how what they are learning applies to their lives. Classes are conducted in English with Finnish translation.
Teen Time Sunday for 7th-9th grade
