Christian Education Hour


Christian Education Hour is from 9:15 AM  to 10:05 AM


A Note from the Sunday School Coordinators:
Welcome back to Sunday school!  Just a few notes as we start off the year…
Sunday school will start at 9:15 and end at 10:05.
Preschool- 5th-Downstairs at the church: Younger kids should be dropped off to the Sanctuary. Younger kids should be picked up at their classroom, please let your child’s teacher know if they can come upstairs on their own after class. Kids will have music time with Pastor Lisa in the Sanctuary from 9:15-9:30. Parents are always welcome to join us in any class!
Middle and High School Upper level of FLC- Middle school- 1st room on the right, High School- 3rd room on the right
Preschool- 3rd grade: will be using a new curriculum this year, Bible Story Basics.  It really does go back to the basics, emphasizing the Bible while using songs, crafts, music and prayers to keep kids’ interested!
4th/5th grade: will be using the Action Bible.  The illustrations are comic-book style, but the stories are out of the Bible.  The kids have really enjoyed this curriculum!
6-8th grade:  Groove- with titles like Character, Dilemmas, it focus on issues pre-teens face and how to approach them in the Christian faith.
9-12th grade: LinC- Living in Christ- weekly curriculum, based on current events and problems teenagers face in our world.
We are so excited to have your kids here!  We hope to give them a fun experience while learning about God’s love for them! Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns or ideas for Sunday school!

REGISTRATION:  We need to keep current on contact information for all children, so please take a moment to fill our a registration form for each new year.  Just click on the following: Registration Form and submit it electronically, or you can get a hard copy form to fill out on the first day your child attends class.

Co-teachers are needed in almost all classrooms. Teams of 3 teachers allow for more flexibility, so teachers can switch off and every teacher doesn’t need to be present every week. Please consider teaching, you will love it!   High School students will receive Silver Cord hours for teaching Sunday School.  Contact Jill Weetman at 319-330-8961 or to help.

Adult Con.nect Groups (Connect with God, connect with others)

For additional information, contact Phil & Tawnia Kakacek.  Coffee is available and all are welcome to join us from 9:15am – 10am in the FLC, downstairs, first classroom on the right.
