Sunday mornings at Parkway offer an age-appropriate interactive learning experience for children from birth through the 6th grade. We are blessed with dynamic teachers who want to make exploring the Bible fun and exciting for kids. Our facilities provide a clean, bright, and engaging atmosphere where children feel safe and loved. We return on Sunday evenings with more ways to teach boys and girls spiritual truths through the Bible Drill program (January through April each year) and Children’s Choirs.
9:45 A. M. – Sunday School
Children from birth through 6th grade meet each week and learn God’s Word through music, Bible stories, games, and learning activities. Caring teachers get to know children on an individual basis.
1st grade through 3rd grade – We are excited to be using a new Lifeway tool called the Gospel Project with your children in Sunday School. See a Bible Story video sample and learn more HERE. Every week there is a brief and captivating visual presentation to accompany the lesson. The Gospel Project is a three year cycle designed to take children through the entire Bible sequentially.
4th grade through 6th grade – We use LifeWay’s curriculum Explore the Bible for your 4th – 6th grade child each week in our Sunday School program. Explore the Bible is a book by book study that will take our older children deeper into the Bible and its application to their daily lives.
Preschool Children’s Church for ages 4 and 5 is offered for both of our morning services, 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM. Preschoolers enjoy a themed curriculum that involves music, video, puppets, crafts, and hands-on activities.
Elementary Children’s Church for children in 1st through 3rd grades is offered at our 11:00 AM worship hour. Children participate in the adult service for praise and worship and are then dismissed for a Bible lesson on their level.
4:30 P. M. – Bible Drill (January through April)
Children in 4th through 6th grades learn in-depth Bible skills in a fun way, advancing to different levels of mastery in Scripture location and memorization. Children may advance to the associational and state Bible drills. Sign ups are going on now!
6:00 P. M. – Children’s Choir
Children from age 2 through 6th grade enjoy singing praises to God while developing confidence in their talents and abilities. Children typically present two musicals each year, one during the Christmas season and one in the spring.
6:00 P. M. –GRAPPLE (a seasonal study for pre-teens)
GRAPPLE is a preteen study for children in grades 4 – 6 . Join us for snacks, games, Bible study, and relevant discussion on topics that are of interest to this age group. Our preteens will be challenged to consider who they are in Christ and what that practically means as they face issues they encounter both now and in the coming teen years. Learn more about our current Grapple study HERE.
