FAITH EVENTS:

WORSHIP WORKSHOP

This class helps children gain a better understanding what we are doing when we worship. Also, every Sunday a child leads us in worship by lighting the Christ candle, reminding us that the light of the world is with us. Children are invited to assist in the part of worship that means the most to them personally.

BIBLE Presentation, October 14, 2018

This class talks more in depth about the Bible and helps prepare the 2nd graders to receive their own Bible. Did you know the Bible is a library of 66 books?  Parents and their children are invited to Sunday School Class and to worship, when children will be presented with their own Bible. 

LORD'S PRAYER

Jesus taught this prayer to his disciples when they asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. Found in both Luke and Matthew passages, we will explore what the different parts of the prayer mean.

THE STABLE VISIT, December 9, 2018 at 7pm

On a cold December night, 4th grade students and their guests walk a short journey to a stable on Mercer Island. Jesus Christ’s birth story comes alive through a multi-sensory experience of visiting a real stable where we read the Christmas story and wonder what it must have been like on that first Christmas night. 

THE LAST SUPPER

5th Graders explore the meaning of the Last Supper and prepare for Holy Week.
