Every Sunday morning at 9:00 am, First Wayne Street has four levels of Sunday School for children aged preschool (beginning at age 3) through 5th grade, two levels for Youth (6th through 12th grade), and three Sunday School classes for adults.

Sunday School for Children & Youth

Our Sunday School teachers love kids, and we can almost guarantee you that your kids will love our Sunday School. Loving, caring teachers will help teach your child about God’s love, not just through telling Bible stories or sharing planned lessons, but also through the very people they are: adults who are committed and loving themselves. Your child or young adult will do, learn, and have fun. We also practice strict child protection guidelines in all of our programs.

  • 2 year olds and younger meet in Room 105 (the nursery).
  • Children ages 3 to five years old meet in Room 230.
  • Kindergarten through 3rd graders will meet in Room 229.
  • 4th & 5th graders will meet in room 304.
  • 6th, 7th & 8th graders will meet in room 305.
  • Senior High will meet in Room 307.

Sunday School for Adults

We currently offer three different adult Sunday School classes that are diverse in both age and interest. Our adult Sunday school classes plan special fellowship opportunities in addition to their Sunday morning gatherings and some have mission outreach projects they support as a class. All are open and welcoming of newcomers.

R.O.C.K. Class (Raising Our Christian Knowledge)

This class is a diverse group in terms of age, socio-economic group, political & theological leanings, and life experiences. R.O.C.K. values open, informed discussion on current & relevant topics. Children of First Wayne Street and members of the ROCK Sunday School class join with the Christmas Bureau each year to organize the annual “Giving Tree” mission project. Class meets in Room 219 (the Parlor).

Koinonia Class (Koinonia means “friendship”)

Koinonia Class covers a diverse set of interests, with most weekly classes focused on a “stand alone” subject. For instance, in recent years the Koinonia class held a series of classes focused on “Prayers of the Faithful,” which studied the prayers of Mother Theresa, John Wesley, and Norman Vincent Peale, among others. This class occasionally also hosts speakers from community social agencies. Class meets in Room 115.

Pastor Cheryl’s Sunday School Class

Our new Adult Sunday School class began on April 8, 2018. What’s the appropriate age for this class, you might ask? It’s for Seniors! And for Millennials! And for Boomers! And for anyone in between. Why should we come to this class, you might ask? To get acquainted! To learn from each other! To build fellowship! And to grow as disciples!
