At Gathering Sunday (September 10) children will join in a group arts and craft project and bring their school back pack for blessing during the 10am worship service. Sunday School classes begin on Sunday, September 17. Parents should drop their child off in the Sunday School Room (lower level) by 9:50am as classes starts promptly at 10am. Children join the worship service after announcements and sit with their family during Eucharist.
Currently we offer three classes divided by grade. Pre-K through 4th grade use The Episcopal Church's "Godly Play" curriculum. Grades 5th through 8th discuss Bible passages and practical ethical decision making. High School students will also gather to discuss scripture and current events. Once a month (third Sunday) a Children's Eucharist takes place during the 10am worship at which Pre-K through 8th grade gather around the altar to assist. If interested, grades 9th through 12th are also welcome to acolyte (carry cross or torches) during worship services; training is available.
