Quakertown United Methodist Church Sunday School is currently comprised of nine classes, with class members ranging in age from two year olds to adults. Each class follows a curriculum and is rooted in the teachings of the Bible. We will be engaging in three stewardship projects over the 2019-2020 school year in an effort to reach out to our community. These cross-generational projects help to strengthen the bond between our youth and adults within our church.
The focus over the next two years is a journey through the Holy Land, in preparation for a church trip to the Holy Land in the Spring of 2021. The younger students will be learning the geography of Jesus's journey over the course of his lifetime. And our older students will be learning about the Holy Land in the areas of geography, history, politics, economics, medicine and science, as well as the cultural influences of the surrounding lands such as Egypt, Greece and Rome.
