Christian Education


We offer enriching Christian Education opportunities for all ages.  Through a variety of curricula geared specifically for each age group, children and adults study God’s Word and participate in prayerful study.  We invite you to join us in fellowship during the program year (September-May) as we study the Bible and apply its lessons to the world around us.

Our Children’s Sunday School schedule is as follows:

Pre-K/Kdgn.: Children meet in the lower level of our Christian Education wing immediately following the children’s message during worship.

1-2 Grades: Children meet in the lower level of our Christian Education wing immediately following the children’s message during worship.

3-4 Grades: Children meet in the upper level of our Christian Education wing immediately following the children’s message during worship.

5-6 Grades: Students meet in the upper level of our Christian Education wing immediately following the children’s message during worship.

7-12 Grades: Students meet in the Youth Group room after the sermon.

Join us for our adult Christian Education classes:

Bible Study: Join us each Sunday from 9:15 – 10:15 A.M. or Tuesday morning from 9:30 – 11:00 A.M. for an adult Bible Study.  We have lots of fun as we discuss the Bible and apply it to our lives.

Disciple I:  This is an intensive Bible Study that meets to discuss readings and assignments from the week.  A 36-week class, the students will cover about 70% of the Bible.

Companions in Christ:  Companions in Christ is for graduates of Disciple I who yearn to continue to develop their daily spiritual discipline with the support of a small group.  This study group is a 28-week journey in prayer, scripture, sharing, spiritual friendship and meditation with a small group committed to supporting each other in their growth in Christ.

Sisters: The participating women of the congregation meet seasonally (fall and spring) for short sessions of theme-based Christian study.

Men’s Group: All men of the congregation are invited to meet for breakfast at 6:00 A.M. at Peppermill Grill in Rockford (7 S. Squires Street Sq.) and book discussion the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month.
