We invite you to bring your little ones to Sunday school where they will begin to learn the word of God with a nurturing, dedicated group of teachers, using age appropriate lessons.
Children visit a different workshop every Sunday. Over the course of four to five weeks, they will be immersed in a single biblical story as they move through the various workshops. Each fifth Sunday will be an “All Lighthouse” event for the whole group. They will come to know Christ in a whole new way so that they can share his light with others.
Every lesson follows a three-part sequence: See, Explore, and Make. Each week, tweens focus on and reinforce a theme by watching a video that combines witty slap-stick humor with solid theology, exploring biblical text, and creating projects that range from games to art and more. We explore themes found throughout the Bible’s greatest stories and encourage preteens to see the narrative arc of the Bible—from Creation to New Creation, and encourage them to ask questions, make connections, and reflect. This year we focus on the Old Testament with Units such as Beginnings, which is a journey through Genesis from Creation to the Tower of Babel, The Promise, which continues in Genesis and focuses on stories such as the Covenant and Joseph. Freedom takes us to Exodus with stories including Moses, Commandments and Promised Land. Kings and Prophets will take us into spring where we will study stories such as David and Solomon's Temple
Who? Club 456 is for all current 4th, 5th & 6th graders. Friends of 456’ers are always welcome and new members can join anytime! We also love our Adult and Teen volunteers, and there are always many opportunities to help!
What? Our motto is food, fun, fellowship and faith! After a quick ice breaker, we jump into short lessons—MINIstries—that address an area of interest to our tweens through games, discussion, activities and art—any creative way to access scripture that is important to their understanding of the world. We then enjoy dinner and dessert in the Celtic Cross Room, where we like to focus on a mission initiative or upcoming event.Then we run, quite literally, to the gym, where we finish with games such as Scatterball, Nine Square, Gaga, etc. and sometimes special contests. IT. IS. SO. MUCH. FUN.
When? Wednesdays 5:30 – 7:15 pm/$5 meal fee for drop ins. We also do field trips and service projects!

Where? Drop off and pick up can be done at the “loop” (the alley behind Andrews Hall where the Gym double doors are), or by entering the main doors of Andrews Hall on Mechanics Street and proceeding down the staircase to the gym.
Why? We believe that learning about God through fun activities aimed at relationship building will create a solid foundation for a life long journey in Christ. Also, to quote the wisdom of Dr. Seuss, “these things are fun and fun is good.”
