Information about the Curriculum
Deep Blue Class

We are excited to continue using the Deep Blue Kids curriculum for K-5th grade Sunday School. At Home with God helps families grow in faith together as children take what they’ve learned in Sunday school and dive deeper into the stories at home with their families. Children will explore families in the Bible, learn how today’s faith families care for children as they grow, build loving relationships, and find out what it means to be part of God’s family!

This year we will experience Sunday School in a One Room School setting with teachers rotating in to share their special gifts and talents with our children.

If you are interested in volunteering as a Sunday School teacher for one Sunday a semester or several Sundays please contact Michelle Jones at michelle.jones@maxpres.org.
