Small Groups that Explore Spiritual Development
Sunday School Classes
There are four classes held every Sunday at St. Paul’s for various age groups. Many of these classes not only provide for spiritual development, but offer opportunities to participate in many giving and mission projects. Check the calendar for class times and meeting locations.
Nursery (2-3 years): This class introduces the children to basic biblical principles through the discussion of bible stories and related play.
Primary (grades K through 3): This class follows “The Story” curriculum throughout the year, intended to develop the child spiritually. Each child in the third grade receives their own copy of the Bible. Participation in these classes is a great first step toward learning more about the faith.
Lower Junior: This class, for grades 4 – 8, follows the “Believe” curriculum. It explores Scripture, our tradition, and everyday life using the theme, “loving God, loving neighbor,” preparing the youth for the formal confirmation class that follows.
Confirmation: Once a child has reached grades 7 – 8, he or she may participate in the confirmation class as a prelude to church membership. These classes are held periodically throughout the school year and are intended to provide information about worship and service and overall spiritual concepts and development. At the end of the year, participants who successfully complete the confirmation program are welcomed as a member of the church in a special service.
Adult: An adult discussion class is held every Sunday typically using a book or other resource to guide the discussion.
Written by Henry Blackaby and Claude King, this study provides practical, insightful instruction on what it means to have a true, dynamic relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ on a daily basis. Participants are provided with a workbook that is used as a study guide to complement a book and video. Contact Keith Wuchter for more information.
Small Groups that Share Common Interests
About once a month, interested participants meet at one of the area restaurants for food and fellowship. There is no program – just food and fun and a chance to learn more about each other. Each month a different restaurant is selected; the group sizes ranges from 10-40 participants. Check the calendar for the date, time and location of the next outing!
Do you have a game that you like to play? Bring it along to game night! Every month a group of members and guests get together to play a variety of board and card games just for fun and fellowship. Snacks are provided as the group typically finds it hard to quit once they start playing. Come visit for a little, or stay the whole night. Check the calendar for the date, time and location of the next gathering!
The Music department offers opportunities to participate in both voice and bell choirs. The Senior Voice Choir meets weekly and always welcomes new members. This group regularly participates in the Sunday Worship Service. Contact director, Carol Reinhard, for more information on the Voice Choir.
For those who prefer to be a “ringer” two bell choirs welcome new members; the Kidz Ring Bell (children from the Primary Sunday School class) and the Adult Bell Choir. These choirs typically meet on a weekly basis and participate periodically in the Sunday Worship Service. Please contact the church office for more information about the bell choirs.
