Sunday School for Children & Youth at Lebanon UMC
Sunday School Theme for Fall: We Celebrate Jesus and his Teaching to Love One Another
All of our classes follow the “Safe Sanctuary” rules with two unrelated adults in every classroom. Children are released to parents or other designated adult after worship.
On Communion Sunday, the first Sunday of the month, we have a Family Worship service. Everyone over the age of 4 is invited to worship together in the Sanctuary (nursery care is provided for those 4 and under).
*Nursery Care for infants through 4 year olds is offered every Sunday during the entire worship service. Parents are welcome to stay in nursery with child. Worship can be piped into the Nursery Room.
*Discussion for Youth Grades 6-12 convenes in the Parlor after Children’s Time during the last 3 (or 4) Sundays of each month. Youth will ENCOUNTER, ENGAGE, and RESPOND to a character from the New Testament through a DVD and creative discussion and activities.
*One Room Sunday School for Grades K-5 gathers in the classroom after Children’s Time.
