YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL

Grace UMC Sunday School is held year-round for children of all ages every Sunday from 9:30 – 10:30 am.
Our goal is to build a strong foundation of faith and understanding in our children and to grow and strengthen this in our adults.
We follow the UMC Safe Sanctuary standards of oversight.
 
Questions concerning our Sunday School program can be addressed to our Sunday School Superintendent, Bob Ebert at eberts@comcast.net.
