Sunday School at Haymarket Baptist Church is an environment where personal faith formation and community formation meet. It is the place to build a sense of belonging and community in our church. It serves as a place where people can find refuge from the busyness of the everyday and connect on a theological, social, and supportive level.
Haymarket Baptist offers a variety of classes, both age-directed and topic-directed which meet all year long from 9:45 – 10:45 am. Feel free to visit more than one class and then connect with the one that speaks to you!
Most Sundays, the smell of coffee and pastries fill the air in the church great hall, so come early for the fellowship!
We provide a loving atmosphere that instills trust in children by using hands-on activities that teach the stories of our faith. Classes are available for infants through elementary age. Divided into age-appropriate classes.
