So You Have a Three-Year-Old!

If your child turns three by September 9, he or she is ready for a new adventure. We have two Sunday School classes for three-year-olds: the 9:30 a.m. class is just for three-year-olds, while the 11:00 a.m. class combines three- and four-year-olds. Your child may attend either class.

If you have a two-year-old turning three during the year, experience has shown us that it is best to wait until the following fall to begin class. Developmentally, your child will be better able to leave you and enjoy the class. Your child has a lifetime to learn the stories of the Bible. As parents, you can do so much more than any Sunday School class by reading the Bible stories from a children’s Bible, which has stories appropriate in length and content for a preschooler and can introduce him or her to Jesus and his love for us all.

Exceptions are occasionally made for children ready for the three-year-old class, but these are handled by Matt Helms, Associate Pastor for Children and Family Ministry. on a case-by-case basis. If you have concerns about your child’s placement, please contact him (312.573.3362) before taking your child to class.
