sunday school

9:45 am

Preschool through 5th grade

Our Sunday school classes are currently using the “Hands on Bible” curriculum. The Bible gives us lots of examples of how Jesus taught, using everyday objects like coins, fish, and plants to help people remember the truths he shared with them. Hands on Bible does the same thing. Using common everyday “gizmos”, children will understand important Bible truths. Because children will experience what they are learning, it sticks with them and they’ll remember these lessons.

During the 11:00 worship service, children ages 3 (potty-trained) through 2nd grade have the option of staying in worship or attending Children’s Church. Children who wish to attend Children’s Church will leave the sanctuary immediately following children’s time.  We have activity bags at each entrance to the sanctuary to occupy those who choose to stay in worship.

safety policy

We value the safety of our children and youth and take seriously our responsibility to lead them well. We follow the safety policy and procedure guidelines as set by the Rio Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. All volunteers must pass a thorough background check by an outside agency and complete a safety training and certification course. You can learn more about our policy and guidelines HERE.

pick up policy

Parents of children in 5th grade or younger must pick up their children from their Sunday school classroom or from Children’s Church. Children will not be allowed to leave on their own or with siblings who try to pick them up. If you need to make alternative arrangements for picking up your child, please speak with your child’s Sunday school teacher.
