Sunday School is held at 11:00 a.m. for anyone under the age of 20. Here students learn how to apply lessons they learn from the Bible to their daily lives, - to moral, social, and school issues. They learn of God’s great love for them and how that brings healing in so many ways. The foundation for this teaching is the Ten Commandments, the Ninety-First Psalm, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Sermon on the Mount.
