Bible Classes for All Ages
Formally called Sabbath School, we meet in various age groups (called departments) to study the Bible in an age-appropriate manner. We begin at 9:30 AM with a brief introduction for the day, and then separate into classes for study. Below is a list of our current Sabbath School Classes:
- Beginners (Ages 0-4)
- Kindergarten (Ages 4-6) / Primary (Ages 6-9)
- Juniors (Ages 10-15)
- Youth (Ages 15-18)
- Young Adults (Ages 19-35)
- Adult Class (Sanctuary)
- Adult Class (Library)
- Women's Class (Family Room)
We gather every Saturday (Sabbath) morning at 11:00 AM to worship our Lord. Everyone is invited to fellowship with us. We do have a Friendship Meal after the service, served potluck style, that are all welcome to join as well.
To serve our families with young children and to have a child-appropriate worship experience, we have started a Children's Church program that runs during our adult worship service. The children gather during the children's story portion of our worship service and then are taken to a classroom downstairs where they participate in singing, story, and crafts to help them learn about God. All our volunteers for this program have been through training and have done background checks to ensure the safety of our children.

Under Youth Ministries, youth are to work together, in cooperation with the wider church community, towards the development of a strong youth ministry that includes spiritual, mental, and physical development of each individual, Christian social interaction, and an active witnessing program that supports the general soul-winning plans of the church. The goal of AYM should be to involve all youth in activities that will lead them to active church membership and train them for Christian service.
