Growing in Christ (Children's Sunday School)
Growing in Christ has two levels of learning (K-3rd and 4th-5th)  which meet in the Guild Room & Youth Room. We stay interactive and community involved with more time to focus on questions and life commitment. Growing in Christ is a wonderful interactive experience which allows our children to learn the word of God through Art, Music and Drama.  Through these mediums we are able to build the foundation of learning in a loving and nurturing environment.  Our teachers span the generations and work together in a team of four on each grade level.  Teams rotate their teaching commitment one month on and one month off throughout the year.  There is also opportunity to work as a substitute.

Together parents, teachers and children create many opportunities for all to grow in their faith.  Here are some of our special projects:
 
  • Christmas Pagaent - One of the biggest highlights of the year is our Christmas Pageant.  Adult and youth volunteers work with children to prepare a celebration of Christ’s birth with costumes, narration and music during the Christmas season.

  • Education through Outreach - As children grow into their life within the parish, it important for them to see themselves as a contributing member of the Christian community. Outreach is an integral part of our Sunday School program.  Four projects are chosen and designed by our teachers, with the help of the children. Through this part of our ministry, our children not only have the opportunity to give to others, they also begin to understand that building a strong community is the responsibility of all no matter how large or small!
      


First Communion Class
Classes are held at 9:00 a.m. as part of  our Sunday School hour.  It is an opportunity for parent and child to learn about and prepare for this sacrament together. Their is a warm and loving exchange within and between families as they experience the presence of God in this sacrament.  The class runs six consecutive Sundays prior to Mother's Day, with the First Communion Service held on Mother's Day at the 10:00 a.m. Sanctuary Service.
 

 
Children's Chapel
The mission of Children’s Chapel (Ages 3, 4, 5) is to serve children with loving care while teaching God’s word. Every Sunday at 10:00 a.m., we offer a child-centered chapel service while parents attend our Sanctuary and Harmony Services. This curriculum follows the church lectionary calendar in an effort to foster family discussion and spiritual growth that may continue at home.  Parent volunteers teach the lesson, prepare art activities, and bring snacks.  Assistant Teacher volunteers assist in planning and serve as a second adult in the classroom. Individuals are requested to serve one month at a time on a rotation bases.
