Church School

Church School classes for all ages begin at 9:30 am throughout the church campus each Sunday.

Preschool classes meet on the ground floor of Mullin Life Center. Elementary age children (grades K-5) meet on the third floor of the Corl Building. Youth classes (grades 6-12) meet on the third floor of the Memorial Building. See adult class information below.

If you're not sure where to find a meeting location, enter through the Welcome Center at the corner of North Elm and Fisher Park Circle. A greeter guide will be available to help.

Praying the Psalms


The Psalms model for us honest ways of talking to God. They are a guide to prayer. The Psalms are, in fact, the only part of the Bible that is clearly formulated as human speech, packaged ready to be put directly into our mouths. All the rest of the Bible represents God’s speaking to us — directly, in the prophets; or less directly through the history of Israel, or the gospel narratives, or the wise sayings of Proverbs. Only the Psalms are formulated as prayer, as human words to God.

Throughout November, Gerald Donnelly will lead a class focusing on the variety of Psalms and how we might, through the Psalms, speak our minds and hearts honestly and fully before God.

Hosted by YMBC, the class meets in Redhead Hall, located beside Memorial Chapel, Elm Street side of the church.
