Due to COVID-19 concerns, we are not currently holding any Sunday School classes.
Mark 13:31 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away."
The Church's task is to lead children and adults to faith and to nurture that faith to maturity. Therefore, attending Sunday School must be recognized as a priority for all members. As a church community, we want to ensure that each member has a broad biblical knowledge and that this knowledge becomes biography.
SUNDAY SCHOOL WILL RESUME January 5, 2020 9:15-10:15 am
We will provide nursery care for babies and bible stories and crafts with pre-schoolers designed for joyful discovery of God’s love. Leaders: Kelly Hooge and Amber Teitsma
Kindergarten & Grade 1
The children will take a walk through the Bible using stories from both the old and the new testament, using songs, stories and crafts to “Imagine” how the people in the Bible learned to trust, work and see God’s power and creation. Teacher: Heidi Zinkand
Grades 2 & 3 The 2nd & 3rd grade will be walking through the New Testament using stories, drama, music, crafts & games. We will begin with the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus. Studying Jesus life, including his miracles and parables as well as his death on the cross and ascension into Heaven. Teacher: Susan Frelier
Grades 4 & 5 This will be a year of New Testament study, first exploring the teachings of Jesus in the parables of Matthew, Luke and Mark. The second part of the year will be spent in Acts, with stories that show how the Holy Spirit worked in the lives of the apostles and the first Christians to enable them to obey Christ's Great Commission. Teacher: Jim Leunk
Grades 6, 7 & 8 The junior high Sunday school will spend the better part of the year moving through history discovering where the church came from. We start our journey in Acts and end with our place in the Christian Reformed denomination. We will discuss how that history impacts our lives, how people suffered and died for their faith--and are still suffering and dying for their faith today. We will learn how politics and religion collided and intertwined, and continue to do so today. This history includes the creeds of our church, why they were written, and what people sacrificed to write them. We will learn a great deal about why we are a part of this church, and in these last few months bring that faith down to a personal level--what do we do because we are believers? How and why do we pray, read the Bible and behave as members of this family of God? Thank you for entrusting you children to me--it has been my honor and joy to work with them. Teacher: Mary Steensma
Grades 9 - 12
This year we will continue to study our faith in light of the historic Reformed confessions and creeds. The documents that make up "the Three Forms of Unity" provide a solid basis to examine the doctrines that point us to Our Only Comfort. As we relate these doctrines to our everyday faith we hope to lay a foundation for high school students preparing for greater independence. Enriching their understanding of what we believe we prepare them to continue to rejoice in the promises of our Triune God even after they have left the parental home.
Teachers: Russ Aizer and Dave Dill
Children’s Tithing Project
Every week, students are encouraged to bring a small offering to support their annual tithing project: goats. The gift of a goat starts a cycle of hope in a community in need.
Class Option# 1
Bill Washburn will be leading a discussion of 1 & 2 Timothy during the Fall 2019 Sunday School session. Shortly before the 1 & 2 Timothy discussion is completed, a class suggestion survey for a Bible book to study will then be conducted.

On January 5th, Pastor Anthony will commence a
special four class adult Sunday School series entitled "Welcome to the
Reformed Church." These classes will be held in the lounge.
The purpose of these classes is to explain what a Reformed church is with
particular emphasis on the origins, history, and doctrine of the Christian
Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA). Accordingly, this class will be
ideal for those interested in joining RCRC as members, for those seeking a
refresher on what it means to be Reformed, and for those interested in
contributing to the edification of others by sharing their own knowledge and
experience in the Reformed church. The classes
will be held on January 5, 12, 26, and February 2 (note a break on January
