Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the educational programs for children, youth, and adults are currently a mixture of in-person, online (Zoom Meeting) and hybrid (in person participation with remote attendees via Zoom.) The descriptions below give an overview of the programs we were offering until early in 2020. For information on current offerings please contact Christy Williams, Director of Christian Education, by phone 850-222-4504 or email.
Children and Youth
We offer classes for learners from five years of age through adulthood. Classes for children and youth are organized by grade; the grade level is determined by the student’s age as of September 1.
Kindergarten through Grade 12
We use a lectionary-based curriculum integrating lesson content with worship content.
