Church School

We have 2 classes for K-6th grade children and youth that meet during the the 11:15 service. Our curriculum is called Shine - Living In God's Light. We believe that Church School:

  • is a time to learn about our faith stories and how they help us relate to our lives today
  • a time for children to get together and know each other
  • organized time together with the central purpose of learning about God and Jesus
  • learning how to relate to others with love in our hearts
  • learn how we do service in our church and in the wider world
  • we have creative fun together

Care is offered during the 11:15 service in our Nursery in the main building. Our nursery is an opportunity for the youngest to play, sing songs and have fun in a caring environment. Come see our desert mural painted by the talented members of our congregation led by Ginny Wing.

Vacation Bible School

A fun inter-generational event that is open to the community.  We have had 7 successful events. Who can forget Moses in Crocodile Dock in 2009 or the Baobab Tree in Africa in 2010 or Chef Basil and Scraps the raccoon at the Shake It Up Café in 2011, traveling to Babylon and learning about Daniels Courage in Captivity in 2012 or Everywhere Fun Fair, Where God's World Comes Together  in 2013. Workshop of Wonders featuring Rivet the ant with Sandy Paper in 2014. May 2015 brought Bible Blast to the Past with our talented Bible Storytellers and the amazing time travelers as well as crafts, games and science and was great fun for all.
