Sunday School & Childcare

Sunday School

Our church school is committed to the moral and spiritual development of our children and teens. Through Bible stories, music, worship, crafts, and social justice projects, we strive to pass on the Christian faith to the next generation. Our church school is based on these principles:

  • We can grow in faith without indoctrination or dogma. We trust that an open-minded, non-literal approach to scripture and tradition can inspire a love of God.
  • By learning about the life of Jesus, we provide children with an example of compassion, justice, faith, and love. This Christ-centered approach never denies that there are other paths to God.
  • Social justice is central to our faith. When children learn about the state of the world, and act with compassion to those most impoverished, they are following Christ.
  • Along with our church school, our entire church seeks to be a safe, fun, child- friendly, nurturing community.

Skyline’s Sunday School is presented in an inter-generational family style where we all grow and support each other. Each class begins with a time of ritual and prayer, followed by lessons, crafts and play time.

At Skyline we believe we are ALL best served when we can learn from our toddlers and our high schoolers around the same table. Each year we review our curriculum choices and prepare for the coming year

Our curriculum is spirit filled and tied to the adult lesson in church so the whole family can have something to talk about after Sunday services. We have a team of Sunday School teachers who provide consistent, dedicatied and talented leadership, and know that learning is a two way street. They are as willing to learn from our children as they are to teach them.

If you have any questions about our Sunday School Program, teaching style, or theology, come and experience our program for yourself!

Family Worship Sundays (Youth and Children Stay in Service)

Skyline is committed to engaging our children in worship as well as Sunday School. Several times a year, our worship service is meant to be fully intergenerational with our Youth and Children remaining in the service. These services are always a lot of fun a good chance for the adults to feel that child-like passion and vitality once again. This Summer our Family Worship service will be July 18th: Old Turtle and the Broken Truth. Upcoming Family Worship services include Preschool Sunday, Earth Day, and others.
