Walton welcomes kids!

Our active, engaging Sunday School program is offered each week at our 9:30 am service for kids in JK through Grade 8. In addition, we offer a Sunday morning Teen Talk for youth in Grade 9-12. All kids and youth are welcome, whether they come once a week or once a year.


Bethal Hall (Ages 3 to SK)

Bethel Hall is an interactive Sunday school program for children ages 3-Senior Kindergarten.

A warm and friendly atmosphere awaits your child as they are welcomed by loving teachers to learn about God. Through games, crafts and story time your child will be introduced to familiar bible stories and the love of God. Join us every Sunday at the 9:30 am service.

Bronte Hall (Grades 1-5)

Children from Grades 1-5 come together in Bronte Hall for a fun-filled Sunday school program. The children join together for story time and games before being divided into groups for age-appropriate crafts and activities. Investigating God through interactive object lessons, skits and experiments are all a component of Sunday school in Bronte Hall.

Join us every Sunday from September to June at the 9:30 am service.

Your generous support is much needed. Your food items will help these families from now  to the end of the winter.
For the next few weeks, you will see specially decorated boxes at all entrances of the church. Please donate each week up to and including October 12th.
