Sunday School Returns!

Sunday School Returns!

April 09, 2021

Each week during worship we are reminded of Central’s vision: The transformation of our lives, our communities, and the world through the renewing work of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God. As we live out the gospel, as we connect, grow, and serve - each other, our communities and beyond - we see this vision become more and more a reality.

Central’s Sunday school communities can be wonderful opportunities for connection, growth, and even service. While many of these groups have continued to meet over the past year via online tools such as Zoom, it has certainly been more difficult to experience the same sense of community and discipleship. So, it is with great joy that we announce the return of in-person Sunday school communities starting this Sunday, April 11.

For the balance of this semester (through May 23) the following communities will be meeting on Sunday mornings. We will then begin the usual “summer break,” and reassess the Sunday schedule prior to the start of the annual Fall ministry kick-off.


  • Navigators: 9am in the Fellowship Hall
  • My Sunday Family: 9am in the Parlor
  • Young Adults: 9am in Classrooms A & B
  • Glearners: 10:30am in the Student Center

Students & Kids

  • Students (grades 6-12): 9am in the Student Center
  • Grade School (grades 2-5): 9am in “the Castle,” the building with the bright red door just south of the parking garage.
  • K-1st Grade: 9am on 3rd floor of the Early Childhood wing above the nursery
  • Ages 3-4: 9am in the Koala Room, located on the 2nd floor of the Early Childhood wing, above the nursery.
  • Nursery care will continue as usual during both services. The nursery cares for children ages 8 weeks - 3 years old.
  • During this time period, children’s church will only be offered during the 10:45 service.

If you have any questions regarding children’s or student’s Sunday school, please contact Karen Brown. For adult Sunday school questions, please contact Pastor Mike Farley.

Sunday School & COVID

While the statistics pertaining to the pandemic are improving, COVID-19 is obviously still with us, and Central remains committed to adhering to all St. Louis County guidelines. Accordingly, preregistration will be required for attending any Sunday school classes, capacity is limited, masks remain a requirement at all times while on Central’s campus, and we ask everyone to be vigilant about social distancing. 

Registration for Sunday school has now been added to the same form as worship registration. While this obviously makes the form a little longer and there’s more “scrolling” we hope the “one stop shopping” approach is convenient for you. Beginning next week, look for access to this form on the home page of our website.

Thank you for your ongoing patience, creativity, and cooperation during a time that has been as challenging and unique as any of us has ever experienced. Please join us in on-going prayer for relief from the pandemic, for healing for those among us who may be ill, and for Jesus’ continued work to transform our lives, our communities, and the world.
