This special Sunday School offering is for 1st graders and children new to Sunday School who have not yet participated in this program.

This 8-week special lesson series for 1st graders and older is designed to introduce children to the important rituals and meaning of the Eucharist and other parts of our liturgy. The children will attend 7 consecutive lessons during Sunday School led by different members of the clergy, staff and lay ministers. The program will conclude with a special recognition ceremony and reception. Lessons will include interactive tutorials on the Eucharistic vessels, the Church calendar, the clerical vestments, a tour of the Sanctuary, an organ demonstration, a manna making session and an instructed Eucharist lead by the Reverend Jon Strand. In addition, the entire Sunday School will participate in a Seder Meal. See the lesson schedule below or download a pdf of the lesson schedule HERE.
