Children/Youth Sunday School:

Preschool (2 years – Kindergarten)
10:15am – 10:45am  -  West Wing Room 107
Led by:  Trish Hopkins
The Preschool/Kindergarten class will be spending the month of September learning about the sacraments of communion and baptism in preparation for World Communion Sunday on October 1st.  In October and November, we will be meeting some of the heroes in the Old Testament.  Our class is interactive and includes hearing the Bible stories read, as well as watching the story on DVD movies and expressing what we have learned through singing, art, and other creative activities.
 
Elementary (1st-4th Grade)
10:00am – 11:00am -West Wing Room 103
Led by:  Teresa Esparza, Rebekah Hernandez
This class features the curriculum, “Growing in Grace & Gratitude”, which helps transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by grace and gratitude.  Each session shares a Bible story that reveals God's grace for us.  Through fun, age-appropriate activities, prayer, and singing, children will celebrate the meaning of this grace in their lives as they encounter a living God.  This Fall, students will explore God's grace through the stories of Ruth, Samuel, David, and Jonah.
 
 
Middle School (5th – 8th Grade)
10:00am – 11:00am – Esperanza Room  (West Wing Room 101)
Led by:  Sharon Fowler, Vicki Moreno
From the Garden of Eden to slavery in Egypt, from the Wilderness to the Promised Land: Journeying with God, through good times and bad, in the Old Testament
 
This year, our Middle School students will explore the archetypal Old Testament stories of blessings and betrayals, promises and abandonment, villains and (literally!) shining heroes, from Genesis through Deuteronomy.  Beyond the stories themselves, we’ll explore their relevance to our world today, and the enduring lessons they teach us for our lives now.  Our goal:  to engage deeper encounters with God, through the portal of these ancient Bible stories – and to come to know, love, and trust God more deeply, through them.
 
Senior High (9th – 12th Grade)
10:00am – 11:00am
West Wing Room 201 (Youth Loft)
Led by:  Craig Hopkins, Carrie Winebrenner, Carrie Pitcher, Jay Pitcher
Senior High students will study the four Gospels this year.  Using the Gospel Parallel format, students will explore the stories written in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  The curriculum puts these stories in chronological order to give students a unique way of seeing the life of Jesus and the good news offered to us all!
 
 

Adult Sunday School

The Word of the Lord: Seeing Jesus in the Prophets
by Nancy Guthrie
10:00am – 11:00am
September 17th – November 19th
Led by:  Eddie Manibusan
 
In the Old Testament, God spoke to his people through the prophets—men specially called to speak God’s Word to his people.  The New Testament makes it clear that such prophets, whether chastising or comforting, testified to Israel’s final redemption and ultimate hope:  Jesus the Messiah.
In this study, participants will explore the person and work of Christ in:
  • Hosea’s willingness to redeem his unfaithful bride from slavery
  • Isaiah’s divine King and suffering Servant, who will be punished for his people
  • Daniel’s stone, not hewn by human hands, that will crush every human kingdom
  • Ezekiel’s vision of a city where we will enjoy Jesus’ presence forever
We invite you to join us for this 11 week study that brings a fresh perspective of the Old Testament prophets as well as a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture.
 
 
Comfort My People: A Policy of Serious Mental Health Issues
10:00am – 11:00am
September 17th – October 22nd 
Led by:  Covenant’s Beautiful Minds Coalition
 
The 218th General Assembly (2008) of the PCUSA approved a report on Comfort My People:  A Policy Statement on Serious Mental Illness.  The PCUSA is called through this policy to go into the diverse places of exile to find God’s children with a serious mental illness and welcome them into the Body of Christ.
 
This 6 week study will familiarize participants with the General Assembly policy by using the themes “The Land of Exile” and “God’s Call to Comfort”.  The study aims to increase awareness and inspire action.
