A Community of Faith, Inspired by Christ, Gathered to Grow, Empowered to Serve.

Christian Education

During the regular school year, the Clear Lake United Methodist Church offers church school to any interested family.  Here, youngsters learn about God, about the Church, and have a fun time doing so.  Every Wednesday evening we begin with a "meal-for-all" at 5:30 p.m. Church school begins at 6:00 with singing and youth classes.  Ages range from 4 years old to pre-teen.  
The Church School started their 2013-2014 year with a picnic at Clear Lake Park.  This year's theme was "The Fair"! We had various games, a pie eating contest and a raffle.  We had a great time!
Here are some of our church schoolers after a scavenger hunt at the Clear Lake Park in September 2012! Looks like they had a good time!
Here's a picture from our 2011 kick-off Luau picnic! 
Confirmation classes will begin in Spring 2013.  Here, students continue to learn about God, what God hopes for them, and expects from them. They learn ways to continue growing in their faith and in relationship with God.  It is during this period of study, that our youth reaffirm the vows made for them at their baptism, and decide whether they will take the membership vows of The United Methodist Church.
