Sunday School

We have an active and exciting Sunday School ministry for all ages! 

Our friendly teachers create an environment of fun and learning for our three children’s classes (all of which meet downstairs in the Preschool Wing). 

Our leadership team of high school students guides their peers through relevant biblical and topical discussions. 

And our adult class, led by Tim Sandifer (our Director of Youth and Christian Education), is always a great place to enjoy interacting with adults of all age as we journey through life and faith together. 

Classes meet at 10am on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month (Tapestry Contemporary Worship brings all our Sunday School classes together every 1st Sunday of the month, as Donut Sunday also does when there is a 5th Sunday of the month). 

To learn more about our Sunday School ministries, contact Tim at 618-466-6077.

  • Preschool & Kindergarten    
  • 1st-4th Grade

Children's Church

Right after the “Message for Young Christians” with Pastor Jerry, kids (age 3 - grade 4) can head out to Children’s Church every Sunday morning.  They begin upstairs in the Chapel for music and offering, and finish downstairs with snacks and Bible lessons (DVDs, games, and more).  We encourage all family members to stay for Sunday School (10-11am), but you are welcome to pick them up after church in the Preschool Wing if you do not plan to stay.  To learn more about Children’s Church, call Tim at 618-466-6077.
