What is Christian Education?

Christian Education is for children 4 years old(must be potty trained) up to 6th grade.  It is to prepare our children to be the salt and light of this world.  We are teaching them and giving them every opportunity to develop a biblical worldview and to become rooted and grounded in their faith.  That way, when they go out into the world where God leads them they will be able to know what they believe and defend it.  C.E. runs from 9:15-10:15 AM. Students begin in the large group area. After the lesson introduction and the big idea, students split off into their classrooms. Students are divided by age groups.

***Please do not drop students off before 9:10 AM. Many of the teachers attend 8:00 service and we do not always have supervision available until after that time. Please come into the church to pick up your children.

We use the Grow Kids Curriculum. Our goal is to help your kids grow spiritually, by teaching and discussing Scripture in developmentally appropriate ways.

Typically, Confirmation is held during a student’s 7th grade year, though anyone older is always welcome to join if they have not yet been confirmed. The class runs from September through May. This year’s class for Stitzer and Fennimore Methodist students will be confirmed May 2024. We meet on Sundays from 7:15-8:30 pm in the church basement at Fennimore. Students work with parents, mentors, and leaders to deepen their faith and grow closer in their relationship with God through their membership in their church. Many opportunities are given throughout the year to get involved including community service, helping with parts of the church services, and leading the Easter Sunrise service.

This is for children ages 4 (must be potty trained) to those leaving Grade 5. VBS meets for five nights in the summer (Sunday-Thursday). It starts with a free meal to the VBS students and their families. The children then head to their designated group and go through the different stations from story time, crafts, music, games and snack time. It runs from 5:30pm-8pm, with a free supper starting at 5pm.
