Important Information during COVID-19 Stay-at-Home Order - Downloadable Sunday School Lessons
A lot of people in our church family are really missing getting together with their Sunday School classes for both fellowship and learning each Sunday morning. We have a wonderful resource to offer to you, where you may access age-appropriate Sunday School lessons using Spring 2020 curriculum downloads from the curriculum company we use, David C. Cook. There are lessons, teacher guides, activity pages, and devotions available for all ages, from Toddlers through Adult classes.
Because our adult classes use a variety of resources and curriculum material for their classes, the Adult Digital Bundle listed below is simply a resource for some excellent study material while we can't get together.
It is very easy to access and download these materials.

I hope that you will consider having Sunday School classes within your family units! Children are great teachers too - give them the materials and let them teach some lessons! Parents can do activity pages too! This can be a very special time for you as a family, as you gather around God's Word and learn together.
