JoAnn Overholt, our Director of Children, Youth and Young Adult Ministries, would like to share the following information for families to use during this stressful time of “sheltering in place,” and activities to share for Spring/Summer.
“We are partners working together for God.”– 1 Corinthians 3:9
God’s word for God’s children – come build your faith! At Laurel you will find a group just your size! Our Children’s Sunday School program serves children 2 years to 5th grade and meets every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Our goal is to help children grow in faith and learn about God as they dig into the Bible. Sunday School classes teach Bible truths and help children find ways to apply those truths in their own lives.
Laurel’s curriculum is designed so that every 4 years, children have completed an overview of the Old and New Testaments.
Please feel free to ask for a classroom directory as well as directions to any room you would like to visit.
Class and Room assignments:
Room 202 – Nursery
Room 204 – Babies/Toddlers
Room 203 – 3 year olds through pre-school age
Room 301 – Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade
Room 302 – 3rd, 4th and 5th grade
When do I need to arrive on Sunday?
Sunday School is from 9:30-10:30 a.m. You will want to arrive earlier to find parking options and to have plenty of time to find classrooms.
Where do I need to go?
Greeters are stationed at each entrance. They will be able to assist you with Children’s Sunday School information and give needed directions.
What will my child do on Sunday?
Our Sunday School classes feature interactive Bible lessons designed to share the love of God with children of all ages. They will enjoy Bible stories, crafts, games and music.
Are children welcome in worship?
Absolutely! Children are highly valued at Laurel and they are always welcome to worship with their parents in the Sanctuary. We offer children’s packets during all of our services. You will find the packet in a basket as you enter the Sanctuary. These packets include coloring pages, crayons and other quiet activities to occupy children’s hands as they listen.
You may also take advantage of the Aquarium located on the third floor of our building. The room overlooks the Sanctuary so that you will be able to see and hear the service while your child takes advantage of the activities provided.
