Cornerstone Classes for Kids
Preschool

This group of 3 and 4 year olds explore Bible lessons that will help them learn more about God’s love, and help them in their everyday lives. They will be using the “Whirl” lectionary based curriculum. It provides a fun and age-appropriate way for kids to experience the church seasons and scripture verses. This class is taught by Sarah Grady and Madelyn Grady as helper.

Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

The class will be using the “Whirl” lectionary based curriculum that provides the kids have a fun way to experience the Revised Common Lectionary. Through exploring the church seasons and diving into the lectionary each week, the kids begin to understand the three-year cycle of Bible readings and rhythms of the church year. This class is taught by Sue Thomas.

3rd – 5th Grade

This group will also be using the “Whirl” curriculum, lectionary-based materials that include weekly Bible lessons, and a DVD with animated characters that introduced the lesson each week. They address deep theological concepts with creative, light-hearted wit and will leave the kids wanting to watch the videos again and again. This class is taught by Jeremy Cunningham.

Cornerstone Classes for Youth

6th – 7th Grade

The class will be using the Whirl curriculum specifically designed for younger teens. It’s a Revised Common Lectionary based curriculum that includes weekly Bible lessons, and a DVD that introduces the lesson each week. The class is taught by Brad Gibson.

8th Grade Confirmation Class

A Confirmation Class is held on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30 p.m.and is taught by Dr. Marshall Zieman. Eighth graders will be given formal instruction on the Presbyterian beliefs, the scriptures and worship as they seek to re-affirm their baptism and seek membership in the church.

Cornerstone Classes for Adults

For each Cornerstone session, we choose an eight-week course. It is taught by members of the congregation. For the last session, the course was a disciple Bible study called “Remember Who You Are.”  Included in the study were Amos, Hosea, Micah, Zephaniah, Isaiah and other prophets from the Old Testament.  The class examined the messengers that God sent, God’s Requirement, Judgment and also God’s Promise of a Redeemer. You can join us for all of the evenings, or drop in when you can.
