We are excited to give you an update on some of the happenings in the Church School this year!
We have adopted a new curriculum, Living the Good News, to help our volunteer teachers lead age-appropriate lessons and activities for a range of children, Kindergarten through 4th grade, who come together each week in one class.
Church School begins at 10:15 am in the classroom on the lower level of the church. At approximately 11:00 am, the children join their families in the sanctuary to celebrate the Eucharist, allowing the children to experience the best of both worlds as they learn about our Christian faith.
Lessons reflect the scripture readings and sermons happening upstairs, enhancing opportunities for shared discussion at home. In addition, each lesson includes a hands-on activity.
On the last Sunday of each month, all children are invited to participate in "Family Sunday" in lieu of Church School class so that they can experience an entire service alongside the congregation and actively participate in the worship service.
Children are also invited to participate in a range of other church activities throughout the year such as Children's Choir, the Christmas Pageant, Easter Egg Hunt, service opportunities, etc.
Two volunteers are paired each Sunday to co-teach the class and rotated throughout the month to accommodate busy schedules. There is no minimum time commitment!
