Christian Education

Sunday School
Gretchen Ransom-Chair

Our Sunday school program is from 8:45-9:45 am. The mornings start by praising God with our voices and then we break into our classes.

Pre-K through 4th grade
5th through 7th grade

The youngest class uses a curriculum called "Deep Blue" and has a variety of activities that work for non-readers and readers. They watch a video with each lesson that highlights what they are going to be learning about. They do a variety of activities and crafts each lesson to reinforce what they have been learning.

The older two classes both use a curriculum called "Submerge". This material uses lessons, scripture, and a quarterly magazine filled with stories and situations youth face everyday. 

In the summer Forbes Youth are encouraged to attend Vacation Bible School which is combined with all the Methodist Churches in our area.


Forbes Youth Group

Forbes Youth 5th grade through 12th group meeting throughout the year for different activities. Youth have done activities such as Noah's Ark, Feed My Starving Children, Super Saturday of Serving, Lock-ins, and many others.
