The Christian Education Department consist of the Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Youth Group, Children's Choirs, Confirmation Classes, Senior High class, Adult Bible Studies group and the Nursery. As a committee our function is to organize and coordinate all departments of the Christian Education and function as a support group for all working in each division.
Sunday School at Friedens runs from September (first Sunday following Labor Day) through May (Sunday before Memorial Day) for ages 3 through 5th Grade. It begins each Sunday at 10:00 in the church. Children will stay for church until after the children’s sermon. Then they divide up into classes for discussion and Bible study until 11:00.
SUNDAY will still be the last
Sunday of the month with the kids staying in church to participate in the
service. The format will be slightly
different to keep the younger children engaged throughout the service.
Vacation Bible School is a one-week session in July, which is open to all children in the area. It sponsors a mission project as well as providing a summer activity for the community.
Preconfirmation is Grade 6th through 8th. Classes are held on Sunday during Sunday School time. Main objective is to develop the education of these teens so that they are better prepared to be confirmed.
Confirmation classes are offered to children in 8th grade who wish to learn more about becoming active adult members of our church. These classes, service activities and other events, which take them through the transition from Sunday school into the adult life of the church.
Adult Bible Study is held on Sunday morning from 8:30 till 9:45 a.m. September through May. It is a group discussion, based on a Bible study book. Giving you time to read the topic at home and helping stimulate discussion with the Sunday group. The Adult Bible Study is waiting to be restarted.
The Nursery is a child care service for children up to 3 years old, while parents attend Sunday Worship.
