Sunday School

Sundays, September 25–Mid June, from 10:10 to 10:50 a.m.


Download the 2016–2017 Sunday School Registration Form.

Overview and Objective

The Sunday School program is designed to be a Christian education continuum taking children 3 years old through high school on a natural progression through age-appropriate subject matter to end up with a comprehensive appreciation of classic Old and New Testament Stories; a basic understanding of what it means to be a Christian and specifically an Episcopalian; a working knowledge of the Bible; the ability to make connections between scripture, Christian traditions and ordinary life; an understanding of where and how we fit into the global Christian community; and the knowledge of what it means to live a saintly life and how we can emulate such behavior.

For the 2016–2017 program year we will explore the Shell Curriculum, which focuses on Baptism.

 

In addition to the formation offerings, several special enrichment events occur throughout the year including:

All Saints Day Celebration

Epiphany Pageant – Festival of Lights

8-week Study of the Holy Eucharist

Christian Seder Meal

Walk through Holy Week


Seventh–Twelfth Grade 

Seventh and Eighth Grades will be using the Dive Devotions book for teens; Youth explore stories of the Bible and discuss how we live and grow in faith.

The High School class will be focusing on lessons from the Bible—based on Sunday morning worship—as it relates to our everyday lives.
