This fall, LMC will pilot a new idea for Sunday School! We’ll explore how we encounter Jesus' love in our midst through a different Bible story each week.


2nd–6th Grades. Session 1’s theme will focus on Exploring Faith through Play and games. Session 2’s theme will focus on the stories of Jacob and Joseph with the opportunity to learn the choreography to “Go, Go, Go Joseph” from the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with a guest dance teacher. This piece will be offered during worship on Sunday, November 20, when Bishop Curry joins us. Session 3’s theme will prepare participants for Christ’s birth through story-telling and preparation for a Christmas play. Jessie Thomas will be the main teacher for this group.

Pre-K 3- and 4-Year-Olds. Brie Thomas and Elizabeth Meadows leading our youngest children.

Kindergarten–1st Grade. Laurie Nelson will lead the class. These classes will follow a more traditional Sunday school model based on the Montessori method, Godly Play.

We can’t wait to learn about Jesus through Bible stories, activities, and play. Registration is open now! While pre-registration isn’t required, it helps us out with planning and means you can jump right into the fun when you arrive. Register here. Contact Sarah Swagler with questions.

Kids and parents can hang out in the back of the sanctuary during worship at our Prayground.


Club 56

Club 56 is an opportunity for 5th and 6th graders to connect on Wednesday nights. They play games, plan the occasional worship service, do service projects, and talk about faith.      



Families with children who are four and under (plus their siblings) are invited to occasional events throughout the year.
