Education At First Mennonite Church

Sunday School for Adults
9:30 am


The Sunday school classes for the most of the fall will have two options. One class will be the Uniform curriculum focusing on the book of Acts. The title for the quarter is “Praying for Signs, Wonders, and Boldness.” 

The second class will look at end of life issues. Topics will include The benefits of planning well, Tame and wild dying, Advance care plan for a peaceful departure, What to do with my body, Necessary family conversations, and Making your wishes known. Those of you who have experience and expertise are especially encouraged to come and share with those who don't.

Sunday School for Children

9:30 am


Preschool, Primary and Middler classes will be offered using the Shine curriculum. 

The Fall quarter introduces children to many important stories of the Old Testament. These are stories of faith that Jesus knew. Fall 2015 includes stories from Deuteronomy, Numbers, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, and 1 and 2 Samuel. Children and Youth will be encouraged to trust God as they hear the stories of Israel crossing the Jordan or of Gideon’s unusual victory. They can witness the kindness of Ruth and be amazed at God’s surprising call in the lives of Samuel, Saul, and David.

Additionally Pastor Ryan Ahlgrim will lead a class entitled “Looking for God and God looking for us”. The class will explore and provide Jr. Youth and Youth students with a foundation for Christian faith.
