Each Spring we set aside time to teach our Third Graders about the Sacraments of our faith and what it means to share in the Lord’s Supper. This special five-week course takes place during Sunday School in the Spring, and ends with Third Grade Communion Sunday.
In the summer, children leave after the Children's Message for "Children's Church," a time of stories and crafts.
