Christian Education


Contact Laura Waetjen for more details on Christian Education.


Sunday School

The spiritual nurture of our children is a priority in the life of Bausman Memorial Church United Church of Christ. Through education and fellowship our children learn the basics of our Christian faith, the central place of Christ Jesus in that faith, the word of God as revealed in Scripture, and the building of relationships that will nurture their faith for years to come.

Meeting Sunday mornings, 9:10-10:05, our Sunday School program serves children from age 3 through 7th grade and classes are generally organized by grade levels:

Pre-school: 3 years old to Kindergarten
Early Elementary: 1st and 2nd grades
Younger Youth: 3rd through 7th grades


Starting with 8th grade, children are welcomed into Adult Sunday School.


Vacation Bible School

This is a Summer program open to children 3 years old through 6th grade. It is held for one week during the Summer from Sunday through Thursday. It begins on Sunday following the worship service and continues through the week in the early evening. Each year there are themed materials that allow participants to share Bible stories, sing, play games, have fun, do crafts, and have snacks.

Bible Study

All are welcome to our Bible Study every Tuesday at 1:00 p.m in the Library with Pastor Mark.

Join us for evening Bible Studies at Bausman on the third and fourth Tuesday of every month, at 7 p.m. We meet in the home of different members for Bible Study. Come and learn more about our faith! For more information, contact our office.



Mentors meet and work with their individual mentee to complete study materials, share faith stories and complete activities in preparation for youth to become members of the church. They also meet with the pastor at designated times during each month as well as independently to complete requirements and develop relationships. The program runs from mid-Fall through Confirmation on Pentecost Sunday (May/June).


Adult Sunday School

This adult class is for all ages and faith perspectives. Pastor Mark Johnson leads the class discussions. We cover a variety of topics including: Bible, current events, church history, faith development, Christian ethics, and more. We use: the internet, handouts, movies, books, the Bible, and everyone’s thoughts and ideas to learn and grow in our faith. We meet in Fellowship Hall and we begin the class with a warm smile, a hot cup of coffee, and prayer! We invite you to join in, share your thoughts, and grow in the faith, love, and knowledge of God!

We also offer an 8th grade through Adult Sunday School class in Fellowship Hall. The topics cover a wide range of subjects, some contemporary, some spiritual, but all thought provoking. Our year starts in September with Rally Day and runs until June.
