Children Sunday School

One of the ways children learn about God is through the people they encounter at church. At Sunday School, children not only learn what stories are in the Bible, but they feel God’s love and safety. Through this experience, children learn to trust God, knowing God loves them so much.

It is important to start attending Sunday School early so that it becomes part of the child’s routine. As they grow older, it will just become a part of their lives. What a great habit to instill in your child!


Galloway’s curriculum for elementary kids is Cokesbury’s Grow Curriculum. It is a very lively curriculum which enriches kids’ spiritual lives by growing their faith by leaps and bounds. The children have a theme for the month, along with a Bible verse. Each Sunday, this verse and idea are reinforced with a different Bible story. This curriculum is great for all different types of learners, as it provides something for everyone!
