Our mission statement is “Sunday School is in the ministry of transforming lives.”

My name is Carla Clennin and I am currently the 2023 Sunday School Superintendent at California UCC. I have been a member of this Church for over 40+ years. I was Baptized and Confirmed on March 31, 1985. I have taught all different age groups from kindergarten to Senior High students.

Our Sunday School has a lot to offer everyone from age 2 to 100+. Classes range from 2-3 years old’s, Kindergarten, school-age, young adults, middle-aged adults, and distinguished adults!

Our Sunday School is a very activity disciples as we sponsor fun and enriching events throughout the year, which include: Vacation Bible School, church camps (for which we help pay an early registration), an annual Fall Party, and a Christmas Eve program, featuring most youth. Wednesday evenings during the school year we invite Kindergarten through 7th grade to the R.O.K program, (Reaching Our Kids) where they learn Bible stories, do crafts, and sing during church services for God’s Singers, due to all the activities are high school students are involved in the past years we have combined our Sunday School morning class time as a Youth Group meeting. We support monthly missions for various organizations/groups throughout Moniteau County and area non-profit organizations.

I invite you to come to visit us each Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. as we gather to enjoy a donut(s) and juice/coffee bar as we gather for a 10-15 minute(s) Sunday School opening which includes Welcome, announcements, celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, offering hymn, small devotional then we head off to our various classes. We look forward to meeting you and we’re sure there is a class you will enjoy!

Favorite Bible Verses which is my confirmation verse: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall, I fear? Psalm 27: 1a

We are excited about the future of our Sunday School and hope you will join us every Sunday you are available to attend.

Sunday School is in the Ministry of Transforming Lives

We are called to serve God. To lead others to salvation through God’s son Jesus Christ. And to offer prayers, programs, and financial support to those who worship within and beyond the walls of our church so that all might have the opportunity to have a personal relationship with our Savior and Lord.

This mission statement was approved at a Teachers and Officers Meeting in 2016.
