Faithful Friends

DSC 0001Preschool Age Sunday School Class

Faithful Friends is our Sunday School class for children ages 3 and 4. We use an age appropriate curriculum from Cokesbury’s Deep Blue series.  Children engage in a bible lesson, sing songs, create a craft and have fun.  Our goal is to provide a welcoming transitional experience from being in the nursery to being in a Sunday School class.  Faithful Friends meets on the first floor in the “Central Grocery” room directly across from the elevator. 

Central is dedicated to the safety of their children.  We have a Safe Sanctuaries policy in place.  The policy is available, as well as volunteer forms and background check forms.

For more information on this class or for volunteer opportunities contact Kathy McDonald.

Bibleville is our Sunday School class for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  In Bibleville we use Cokesbury’s Deep Blue Curriculum to dive deep into bible stories through a kids point of view.  Engaging materials, short videos, crafts and games fill our hour together.  Our goal is to share the word of God with your children while helping them to feel at home in church. We also participate in a number of mission projects throughout the year including packing Christmas boxes for our mission in Costa Rica, 'What's in Your Purse' Mother's Day mission and making greeting cards for our home bound members. Bibleville is located on the 2nd floor of the educational building in “Central Park”, directly up the stairs near the church office.  Sunday School is taught by our Children's Minister and other members who enjoy serving in Children's Ministry.

Central has a Safe Sanctuaries policy in place to ensure the safety of our children.  The policy, volunteer forms and background checks are available.  Contact Sandra Tumlin with questions.

Children's Church


Children’s Church is designed for children ages 4–7 that may not want to sit through the entire 11:00am worship service.  About 20 minutes into the service our pastor will call the children down to the felt boardfront for Children’s Time. After that, an adult will escort those who wish to go to Children’s Church out of the sanctuary and to Bibleville on the second floor.  There we will share a short bible story and discuss.  A gracious member donated several felt boards. We will use those boards to tell the stories for the fall of 2016.  You may pick your child up in Bibleville after worship.  We do not have Children's Church on the first Sunday of each month when we share in communion or during the summer.

For children ages four through second grade.  For questions and concerns contact Sandra Tumlin.


Children’s Choir

The Children’s Choir is comprised of young singers from kindergarten through fifth grade and rehearses in the Bibleville on Sunday afternoons.  The children sing during worship several times throughout the year and on Christmas Eve at the Family Service. Contact Susan Theodos for rehearsal times.
