Faith development is important for all of us, and especially for tweens and teens. In four unique Sunday morning classes, youth grades 5th through 12th gain exposure to God's Word and the amazing message of Christ's love at Kirkwood United Methodist Church. In these classes, our experienced leaders and mentors help develop a knowledgeable, understanding, and tolerant youth who not only understands what it means to be a Christian, but also understands what it means for THEM to have a personal relationship with Christ.
Sunday morning classes allow for ALL youth to enjoy fellowship and learn in an safe, non-threatening environment which helps equip them with the necessary tools they'll need to live their lives as examples of Christ in their families, schools, communities, and world.
Each Sunday morning class meets for 1 hour on Sunday morning.
