Pastor Mark takes a journey with our children in the Atrium II Classroom.
I love Central because it strives to use our strengths for service. I feel so honored to not only be asked to be a deacon, and then chair, but to be allowed to write and direct our Christmas musical last year, teach Adult Sunday school, and sometimes play the piano in worship and other special services. I feel that my input and voice is valued, but not in a way where I am asked to do everything, or in a way where my voice is valued more than others...
I have been so pleased with the children’s Sunday school curriculum and program. In fact, a few years ago Aiden would be so disappointed if we didn’t make it to Sunday school for some reason. Aiden loves the opportunities to create and learn in a safe space. As a mom, I love that the curriculum teaches children how to be still and quiet enough that they are able to take in lessons about both the Bible and our church year.
