Sunday School (PK - 8th Grade)

Contact:  Kathleen Voss, Director of Children's Ministries

Sundays, 9:30 - 10:15 AM - September 11, 2016, through May 21, 2017.

Sunday School does not occur on the following dates during the 2016-2017 school year: October 2, November 6 & 27, December 25, January 1, February 19, and April 16. 

Pre-K - 5th Grade classes meet in the Sunday School Wing. We use Weaving God’s Promises as our primary curriculum. This three-year program covers the basic Bible stories every Christian should know; along with church history, seasons of the church year, Episcopal Church traditions, and the sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist.  It helps children practice their faith in prayer and action.

Each lesson is presented in an age appropriate way so your child leaves class with the whole story.  Children will hear messages from the Old and New Testament.

Each lesson includes a question and answer session to help clarify and draw from the children what they learned from the story.  The parents’ job is important.  We hope that you take the time to let your child share their journey with you!  What they learn as children they will hold in their hearts and draw from what they remember when they are adults.

Our dedicated teachers and staff are grateful for the opportunity to lead your children in this journey as we learn to weave God’s promises into our lives

Each child is unique, each class is different.  They are a “work in progress” and the reward will be due to your support and prayers!

 

Rite-13 Class (Grades 6-8th) - meets in the Youth Room

The name comes from a liturgical rite of passage, loosely based on the bar/bat mitzvah tradition, that we celebrate with the young people around their 13th birthday—at the end of the second year of   Rite-13. This program assists young people as they begin to take the first steps of independence from their families into their own lives. During these two years, the community acknowledges the gift of gender, celebrates the amazing creative power and potential of these young people, and creates a safe haven in which to explore new ideas, new interests and new abilities.

With Jesus as our model, we seek to examine and strengthen all aspects of our human experience:

  • Self (Jesus increased in wisdom)
  • Sexuality (Jesus increased in years)
  • Spirituality (Jesus increased in divine favor)
  • Society (Jesus increased in human favor)

Rite of Passage:

The Celebration of Manhood and Womanhood, which occurs at the end of the second year, is a liturgical expression of the church’s and the family’s commitment to supporting the young people on   their journey.
