Sunday morning from 9:30 until 10:30 a.m., participants of all ages gather by age groups to learn about the Christian life.
Children and youth are an important part of church life, and we want each one to experience God’s love for them. At First Mennonite, we want to connect children and youth to God and help them know Jesus. We want them to not only know the stories of the Bible, but what it means to follow Jesus in daily life and to care for others.
It is our desire to provide a safe and protected environment for children and youth to learn, grow and have fun (Child Protection and Abuse Response Policy). We have weekly Sunday School for preschool through 5th grade that uses the Shine curriculum, and a class for middle and high school age.
Children and youth are invited to participate in worship through the children’s story, children’s bulletins and opportunities to read scripture, provide music, and share about what they are doing and learning in Sunday School.
An array of adult classes are available. Some use the Adult Bible Study, offered through Mennonite Church USA, and others discuss a variety of special topics.
Children, youth, and adults can also participate in the Shalom Readers program sponsored by Central Plains Mennonite Conference. These books on international events, world history, and God’s vision promote discussions about faith in Jesus and what it means to be a disciple of the risen Christ in today’s world.
