Sunday School Classes

Children’s Sunday School classes begin at 11:00 AM in the Assembly Room in the children’s wing of the Sanctuary building and ending in age level classrooms. During Sunday School, we use Cokesbury’s Deep Blue curriculum to lead children through the Methodist church’s liturgical year, using music, videos, live storytelling, Scripture reading and memorization, prayer, and other activities to help children learn the stories of God’s Word, the Bible, and deepen their faith in God.

Club 56 (5th and 6th Graders)

This class meets during the 11:00 AM worship service in the Children’s Assembly room. 5th and 6th grade students are invited to fellowship and grow in faith using a curriculum called Echo The Story by Sparkhouse where students are encouraged to experience the Bible through storytelling, creative reflection, and dialogue. There will also be an off campus experience offered every 5 weeks. 

Music Makers

We are excited to begin our new Children’s Choir called Music Makers. Children will be given the opportunity to sing in worship, perform at special events, and develop their God-given musical talents. Our rehearsals will be Wednesday evenings, beginning September 11 and ending October 2, from 6:15-6:45pm in the Children’s Assembly room. Our first performance will be October 6 in the 9:45am and 11:00am worship services. Contact Carlee George at carlee@huntsvillefumc.org for more details.
