Sunday School



ADULT CLASSES 9:30-10:15 A.M.



Young children listen to a Bible story, work on a craft, interact in fun play, and take time for a snack. The lessons provide active, creative ways to help youngsters learn God’s word. Kylie Hughes invites all birth-3 year olds to come and have a good time learning about God.


PRAISE MAKERS (4yrs- 8yrs)

Exploring God’s truth through storytelling, art, dramas, video, games, and other mind-stimulating activities allows kids to learn the way God made them to learn- utilizing all the pathways He’s built into their minds and hearts. The Rotation Sunday School’s unique approach to teaching God's word provides kids with faith-building experiences designed to build a strong biblical foundation for their walk with Christ. Paradise U.M.C. has five workshop zones that each child visits over a five week course.

GOOD SHEPHERD'S INN - Children settle into a cozy atmosphere and enjoy a Bible storyteller drama, then make and munch a yummy snack that ties in to the story.

SEASIDE STUDIO - For the artist in every child! Kids create personal artistic expressions of their spiritual growth and response to the Bible story.

STARGAZER THEATER – The stage is set for the child to be a star as the Bible story is acted out either by the child or puppets.

MOUNTAINTOP PRODUCTIONS - The tantalizing smell of popcorn welcomes kids to this workshop where they view and analyze clips that expand the scope of the Bible story.


BIBLE GAME ZONE - Here's the chance to get rowdy with lively games that challenge kids to recall and relate to important points of the story.


As always, the Bible story is the core, the constant focal point and the driving force in every zone area. Each room is decorated to enhance each theme. The rooms are welcoming and kid-friendly. Take time to look and see what is available for every child. Children ages four through eight are invited to come and learn God's word in this amazing fun way!! Teachers and leaders include Brenda Ansell, Nicole & Jeremy Hough, Risa Hughes, Kaitlyn Knopsnider, Michael Durstine, and Stacey Snyder

"Mark, God in Action" By Chuck and Winnie Christensen

The book of Mark shows us Jesus Christ in action- a purposeful, powerful individual who addressed the personal needs of those he encountered and brought hope to hungry groups, demonstrating compassion and supernatural power over sin. 

As we study Mark's account of Jesus in action, we will begin to see how God can be active in us, in our church and community.

We welcome all to come, join in the action as we see what God has in store for us.
