Education

The Sunday School hour, 11AM-11:45AM, at Almond Valley Church is one of the primary times and ways we educate children and adults to know the Bible and its teachings. We especially challenge children and adults to live out the lessons of faith and become faithful followers of Jesus in all we think and do. Classes are offered for all ages and meet in various locations in our building. Please feel free to ask an usher, elder, or any member to help you find your way.

K-5th

DWELL Sunday school curriculum actively engages kids in God’s story using interactive games, reflective wondering, dramatic storytelling, and a whole lot of fun. Colorful story symbols create visual timelines; songs with kid appeal help memory verses stick; and wonderfully illustrated take-home pieces provide support to families. Through it all, DWELL invites kids to find their place in God’s story, living into and out of it for the rest of their lives.

In DWELL, kids do more than hear a story. They experience it!

Special events in which Sunday School is involved:

  • Christmas program (K-8)

6th-8th

Our middle school education classes blend middle school ages, 6-8th grade. The DIVE curriculum helps teens grow in faith, connect with God's people, and live out God's story for their lives. DIVE includes interactive devotions based on selected Scripture passages and on the teachings of the church. Story symbols connect the readings to DIVE curriculum sessions. Activities include Bible reading, Q&A's from the reformed tradition, memory verse and a challenge.

Go ahead! DIVE a little deeper into God's Word and God's world. See for yourself what God is doing!

9-12th

It is our church’s desire and prayer for our high school youth to develop a deep, growing faith that stays with them and continues into a lifelong relationship and service to Christ. Currently the high school students are studying the Heidelberg Catechism. The Heidelberg Catechism is a summary, in question and answer form, of the various teachings of scripture. Written in 1563, it is a personalized confession of faith.

Adult Sunday School

Almond Valley’s Adult Sunday School class is just one way we seek to provide our adults with high quality theological and Biblical discipleship. Our 4-6 week studies will include topics such as various books of the Bible, Church history, liturgy, apologetics, evangelism, and more! We meet on Sunday mornings from 11:00-11:45 AM. This is the perfect place for those wanting to learn more about their Christian faith, especially from a Reformed perspective, and there is no need to sign up—just feel free to join us whenever you are able!

Discovery Class

Almond Valley desires to be a growing congregation. We value educating our visitors and prospective members on what we believe and how we function as a congregation. What is a Christian Reformed Church? Who is in charge at Almond Valley? How might someone become a member? Pastor Mark will occasionally teach a 3-week Discovery Class for people who are interested in learning about the basic beliefs and membership process of our church. This class is a great way to get to know Pastor Mark and other people who are considering membership at AVCRC.
