Weekly Classes

Sundays at 9:20 AM

Fair Havens is a combined class that meets in E132.

Sundays at 10:55 AM

We offer three different Sunday school classes during the 10:55 AM service to best fit your child's spiritual and developmental needs: Fortress is designed for Middle School, High School and College age youth. In Room E145. Safe Harbor is designed for older age preschoolers through young elementary age. In Room E132. Sheltered Cove is for students of all ages who require more individualized care. We maintain a ratio of 3 students to every teacher in this class. In Room E145.

Events

We hold several annual events such as:

  • Jump'N and Jam'N Family Fun Day (late summer/fall)
  • Respite Care

Respite care events are offered at various times throughout the year. These nights are designed to give parents of our Sunday school class students an opportunity for some "down time" while the students come for two hours of fun and fellowship.

Our Teams

Wonderful teams of volunteers who are carefully screened before they serve in the classroom serve in Special Needs Ministry. They are serving because they know the importance of teaching these dear children about God's love and how Jesus has provided a way for us to live with Him forever.
