Here at Lakes, Sunday School is part of our foundational ministry from the children through adults. The purpose of our Sunday School is expressed in the words of Paul to the Colossian believers. “We proclaim Christ, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ” (Colossians 1:28).
Classes meet during both the 9:00 service hour and the 10:45 service hour. Adults are given the opportunity in our adult elective program to choose from studies about books of the Bible, topical studies with doctrinal or theological focuses, or marriage and family classes which focus on encouraging parents in their relationship with one another and with their children.
For further information regarding our Sunday School, please contact Pastor Darryl Gross.
