Children

Children's Sunday schoolBible stories with all their drama and excitement, miracles and battles, messages of love, faithfulness, hope, and joy are full of the wonder of God. In Sunday school we share these stories and guide children on their faith journeys in ways that encourage them to be open, honest and genuinely enquiring.

Classes for three-year-old through 5th grade take place each week during the first part of both the 9:00 am and 11:00 am services and then they return to their families in time for Eucharist.

Sunday School Overview

Children and youth attend class at the beginning of the services and join worship in progress (at the Peace). During their class, they hear lessons and respond to them on  their developmental level while the adults are hearing the lessons of the day and a sermon  (a response to the lessons). Then we all experience the liturgy of the table and Eucharist  together.  Children are welcome to attend the whole worship service if they prefer not to attend Sunday school.

Curriculum Descriptions & Class Locations:

  • 3 – 4 year olds (Room #2)
    Godly play stories Children hear a story and participate in a craft activity created for each story.
  • Kindergarteners to Fifth Graders (check bulletin board inside education wing entrance for weekly room location). Workshop Rotation – Grass roots curriculum, ideas shared online (rotation.org). The story is told three weeks in a row, but in a different workshop for each grade level (ours include cooking something that ties with the story in Garden of Eatin’, acting out the story or using the puppet theatre in Parable Productions and creating an art project in How Great Thou Art). [Multi-intelligence based and the most exciting curriculum we have seen in years.]
