Christian Education



Sunday morning classes for all ages are offered from September until Memorial Day, 9:15 to 10:15. Nursery care (infants through age three) is available from 9 a.m. to noon.


          “Let the little children come to me . . . for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

          We believe in providing a strong Christian background using scripture based curriculum, stories and songs. Lessons are engaging, interactive and creative. We supplement core studies with mission and service, nurturing and supporting faith in action. We love music at UMCGF! Each Sunday the elementary age children begin their morning as a group to learn and sing traditional and contemporary songs of faith. Classes meet in the lower level of the Christian Life Center. In addition to Sunday School, here are special events which encourage our youngsters’ participation: Fall Festivals, Christmas Caroling and Crafts, Christmas Eve Live Nativity Scenes, Spring/Easter Games and Crafts, Children/Youth Sunday, and Bible Boot Camp.


          There are three adult classes on Sunday mornings.

          *  Sunday Conversations - varied topics, frequently using videos                and discussion; the class meets in Jo Ann Koe Hall, the upper                level of the Christian Life Center.

          *  Bible Study - in-depth study and discussion of a particular book                of the Bible chosen for long-term focus. Yellow Room of                          Hurlbutt Hall.

          There are several classes offered on weekdays.
