The overall purpose of Church School is to begin sharing with our children, the love of Jesus and what it means to be a Christian in an increasingly complex world.
Church School meets during the 10:00 am service. The students proceed directly to their classrooms at 10:00 am, and rejoin their families in church for the second half of the liturgy, including the Eucharist. On most Sundays during the school year, the children are in individual classes, grouped by grade. The Church School program this year will be “Living the Good News” It is a lectionary based program which means that the children will almost always be learning about the same lessons that are read in church that week. On select holiday weekends, special sessions are held for all children in attendance. These sessions focus on a wide array of subjects, and are designed to help the children understand the traditions and rituals of the Church.
Our teachers are volunteer members of the Parish. Parents are asked to support the Church School by bringing their children to class faithfully, and by discussing the weekly lesson at home.
