Sunday School Classes

During our Sunday School classes, your children will build the foundations of their faith and start growing in their own personal relationship with the Lord.  All of the churches in the Driftless Regional Ministry have Sunday School classes throughout the traditional school year (September through May), however each class is different.  We encourage you to pick a Sunday School that will be right for your child, where they can get the best start in their life-long journey of loving and worshiping the Lord!  For more information on the Sunday School classes at each church, check out the information below!

Liberty Pole UMC offers Sunday School for children from age 4 through high school!  We offer two separate classes, one for elementary school age children and one for junior high and high school students.  Classes are held during our Sunday worship service during the school year (September through May).  We go to class after the children's sermon (approximately 9:30 a.m.) and wrap up at the close of the worship service (10:15 a.m.).

Sunday school will resume this fall on Sunday, September 22nd.  Everyone is invited to join in the learning and fun!  For more information, please reach out to us at libertypole-umc@driftlessministry.org.

The New Hope UMC Sunday School is held during the 10:30 a.m. Sunday worship service during the school year (Sept. - May).  We follow a One-Room School model bringing together children of all ages.  Lessons are generally based on the scripture and sermon from the service so that the children and adults can talk about what they learned at home as a family.  Class ends as the worship service comes to a close allowing the children to partake in the fellowship time following the service.  All children, even visitors, are welcome to come and take part in the Sunday School.  For more information on this Sunday School program, please contact us at newhope-umc@driftlessministry.org.
