    "Train a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he want depart from it" Proverbs 22:6 

    The purpose of Grant Church School is to provide a Christian Education for the acquisition of biblical principles for all church members.  

    The main objective is to ensure that all students will be able to understand and demonstrate knowledge of the basic concepts of the Bible.  We have specific goals and objectives for appropriate age levels.  These classes meet each Sunday at 9:30.

    The overall goal of this class is to provide an orientation to acquaint new members with the history, foundation, purpose, structure and Doctrines of the AME Church.  The Pastor or designee instructs these classes.

    A Continental Breakfast is served to the church school members on designated Sundays.

      Sunday Morning Bible Study can open the door to:

      • Growing Relationships
      The Key to spiritual growth is being rooted and grounded in love. Each of us needs godly relationships beyond the worship service experience. Sunday Morning Bible Study provides the best atmosphere to meet new people.
      • In-depth Bible Study
      More than hearing another sermon, Sunday Morning Bible Study is involvement and you are a key player to healthy discussions regarding spiritual growth.
      • Small Groups
      Beginning with Sunday Morning Bible Study, a special close-knit circle of friends can be formed beyond the walls of the church building providing a safe place to express concerns and an atmosphere of healthy transparency.
      • Utilizing your God-given Spiritual Gifts in Service
      Sunday Morning Bible Study encourages you to be involved in exercising your spiritual gifts to mutually uplift the body of Christ.
      • Encouragement
      Only in a small group setting like Sunday Morning Bible study can you be stimulated to love and good deeds, and have the time to encourage one another. (Hebrews 10:24-25).
