Sunday School for Children and Families

Celebrate Wonder is the Sunday school curriculum for preschool and elementary school-aged children. Celebrate Wonder “All Ages” is also the basis for our Thursday evening Celebration Community gatherings.  Celebrate Wonder is a spiritual formation and faith exploration experience for your children and your whole family. The material is presented in themes that last 4-5 weeks, Each week includes a bible story with related “wonder” questions. The curriculum lends itself to a few minutes of inspiration, or to a deeper exploration of the faith ideas. Children’s Sunday school classes meet every Sunday between September and May. Thursday Celebration Community meets almost every Thursday evening all year.  Now is always a good time for your family to join!

Sunday School for Adults 

Christianity, Literature, and the Arts: …

Creative artists rekindle the human instinct of awe at the universe, help us look at our world and ourselves in new ways, illuminate and deepen our Christian understandings. “In the beginning was the Word,” the Gospel of John declares.  And so in this class we continue to read, re-read, and discuss the words from many of the acclaimed fiction writers and essayists of our time. Additionally, music and the visual arts have regularly enhanced our class time and we have recently increased our emphasis on these arts. Brent Wissick and Steve Squires provide direction; class sessions are group discussions with participation from all. This class will meet  Sundays at 9 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.

All are welcome to this class that continues to enjoy the legacy of its long-time former leader Joe Flora, retired UNC English professor.
