Youth Programs

When each child is baptized we promise to faithfully bring them into God's house, teach them the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, the Ten Commandments and provide in their instruction in the Christian faith.


We want to welcome you to a new year of Sunday School! This year we will be meeting in person. Join us on Sunday, September 19th at 9:00AM for Rally Day and a special “Blessing of Backpacks” during worship!  All children are encouraged to bring their backpacks for a special blessing from Pastor Schoepflin as they begin a new school year.


Is this your first-time hearing about Sunday School?  Do you have friends or family members who might be interested in Sunday School?  All are welcome to join us!  Here, all children of God can make friends and learn about God’s love for them! 


Our Sunday school classes are designed for children 3 years old through 5th grade.  Our 3 year old program is for children turning 3 by December 1st and our 4 year old program is for children turning 4 by December 1st.  Grades K - 5 will coincide with your child’s public or private grade in school this fall.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact our Director Greg Johnson at 631-258-3122 or email Greg at
