Frequently Asked Questions:
 
What will my kids do during Sunday School?
While every class is a little different, everyone will have some time with music, games/activites, and Bible study. 
 
What age do kids start going to Sunday School?
We offer classes beginning with 3 year olds. We also provide a supervised nursery during our Sunday School hour for children 3 and younger, if you feel your 3 year old is not quite ready for classes.
 
What curriculum do you use?
We use the “Spirit in Truth” curriculum. It follows the same calendar and lectionary that our weekend services follows, so everyone in the church is learning and studying the same stories and topics.
 
Is there a fee for my child to participate?
No! We want anyone and everyone to have the same opportunity, we don’t ask for any monetary support in order for your children to participate.
 
Is there a dress code?
Not really, come as you are. We don’t require or expect your ‘Sunday best’ by any means. Dress however you want. While we don’t have any written dress code, we do ask that clothing is ‘appropriate’. Clothes that would be deemed ‘appropriate’ at school will likely always be a safe bet.
 
Who will be teaching my kids?
We have an awesome group of volunteers made up of adults and high schoolers from the church!
 
What time do they have to be there?
Sunday School starts at 9:45, but often kids start showing up around 9:35. If you arrive earlier and/or you arrive before a teacher or shepherd has arrived, please do not leave your kids unattended.
 
Do I stay with them or drop them off?
We ask that you stay with your children until a volunteer is in their room. If you arrive earlier and/or you arrive before a teacher or shepherd has arrived, please do not leave your kids unattended.
 
Am I able to go to class with them?
While don’t have strict ‘no parents allowed’ rules, we do encourage parents to allow their kids this time to learn and be with their classmates. One way to be with them is to volunteer to teach or shepherd their class.
 
How long does this go?
Sunday School is from 9:45-10:45 on Sunday mornings. We run from September-May typically, and the official start/end dates can be found on our calendar, here
 
Do we have to be members to bring them?
Nope! Anyone can come be a part of Sunday School! Visitors are welcome!
 
What do you do in the summer?
We do not have weekly events for children in the summer, but we do have a week long VBS program, typically in the beginning of June. The official date can be found on our children’s page, here.
 
How do I get involved?
We couldn’t do what we do without the amazing volunteers we have! If you’re interested in helping out, contact Reagan at children@3cross.org or click the ‘volunteer here’ link on our children’s page.
