Middle School – 6th -7th
We believe scripture should be used to build a foundation to a student’s faith. Every other year we switch off teaching Old Testament and New Testament bible stories. We hope that by looking at these bible stories in depth we are able to see a bigger picture of God’s story written throughout scripture.
Middle School – 8th
Three years ago, Arborlawn decided to switch confirmation from 6th grade to 8th with the intention of allowing students to better engage with the information discussed. This will be our second class of 8th Confirmands. We are excited to continue this new confirmation program as students grow in their faith - engaging with scripture, the church, and Methodist traditions.
During the Sunday School hour, 8th graders will discuss topics related to Confirmation. This is a time where we are encouraging students to go deeper and ask the tough questions. We love seeing students wrestle with difficult questions in a safe environment. We understand that students might not make it every week – and that’s ok! This is simply a space for them to come and learn more about the incredible God who loves us! Click here to learn more.
High School – 9th – 12th
During the Senior High Sunday School class there is a change from head knowledge to heart movement. This process follows Matthew 4:19 in that we first need to follow Jesus and then be willing to be made new by Him. After building a foundation in Middle School, we discuss what we call “Table Topics”. Students will receive an introduction to the topic and then we encourage students to discuss the topic by looking at a passage in scripture and looking over their table questions.
