Sunday School 

Grace’s Sunday School welcomes all children from three-year-old preschoolers through fifth grade, including those with special needs. Children in grades 6-8 attend Confirmation classes.

Classes meet on Sunday morning at 9:45 a.m., during the Education Hour, the time between worship services.

The Sunday School is called Whirl, and it is based on the lectionary texts read in worship every Sunday. Whirl brings worship and Sunday School together for children and encourages them to follow the seasons of the church year. There is a new lesson every Sunday, with take-home leaflets that provide activities for families to do throughout the week.

Julie Modrich, Grace's Children's Ministry Coordinator, is in charge of the Sunday School program, assisted by the members of the Children's Religious Education Committee. Contact her at jmodrich@graceriverforest.org.
