Glendale Baptist places high value on Christian education in the church. Our educational offerings reflect the diversity in the membership.
Sunday School meets each Sunday from 9:30 to 10:20 a.m.
Sunday morning classes, provided for all age groups, use a variety of approaches and curriculum materials including regular Sunday School materials from Cokesbury, curriculum for Workshop Rotation Model (WoRM) for elementary school age children, as well as stand-alone books and member-designed eclectic approaches for adult classes.
Kindergarten through Sixth Grade
This year, Glendale continues the Workshop Rotation Model, or WoRM for short. Here’s a brief description of this model of doing Sunday School. Teach major Bible stories and concepts through kid-friendly multimedia workshops: an Art workshop, Drama, Music, Games, Puppets, Storytelling, Computers, and any other educational media you can get your hands on. Teach the same Bible story in all of the workshops for four or five weeks rotating the kids to a different workshop each week. The same teacher is in each workshop for all three or four weeks -teaching the same lesson week after week (with some age appropriate adjustments) to each new class coming in.
Our Youth Sunday School class is taught by Lyndsey Godwin using the Seasons of the Spirit curriculum published weekly online by Logos Productions, Inc. She also includes current events in the lessons.

The Twenty-Something class, which focuses on faith development, is reading Walking with God In a Fragile World.
