Sunday School

Sunday School is held during the regular Sunday Service for all age groups from infants through senior high school students.

Parents may take their young children directly to church school before attending the worship service at 10:30.

  • Babies and toddlers through age two are cared for in the nursery on the first floor.
  • Preschool and kindergarten aged children meet in the large, well-equipped preschool room at the end of the hall, also on the first floor.

Students in first grade through high school attend the first part of the service with their families (10-15 minutes) and then go to their classes in various areas of the second floor of the building for the remainder of the service.

  • Students in the first through eighth grade attend the Workshop Rotation Model style of Sunday School. These workshops are designed to encourage children to explore the Bible through drama, art, cooking, music, games and videos.
  • The senior high school class meets in the Youth Room and incorporates current faith issues and events into their class studies.

Church volunteers provide a week of Vacation Bible School each summer for all children in the community who wish to attend. A small fee covers snacks, tee shirts and art supplies.

A Summer Camp is provided by the Michigan Association of Congregational Christian Churches.

Workshop Rotation Model

Come and explore FCC’s Sunday School, filled with colorful murals and bright, cheerful classrooms designed to encourage children to explore the Bible through drama, art, cooking, music, games and videos.

Children from first through eighth grade attend the beginning of the service with their families and then go upstairs to the chapel. From there, a guide will take them to the workshop designated for their class group.

Teachers stay in their workshops for four or five weeks while the various age level groups visit a different room each Sunday.

The weekly rotation plan appears on the main level every Sunday to let parents know which workshop their children are experiencing that day.
