CHURCH SCHOOL

Our church school program uses the “Workshop Rotation Model” to teach children about the love of God through kid-friendly workshops incorporating art, drama, music, games, puppetry, storytelling, cooking and mission/outreach projects. Our lessons are lectionary-based, using Bible stories from the Revised Common Lectionary read during worship services each week. 

 

The program is available on Sunday mornings for children who are in preschool (age 3 by September 1st) through grade 5. Classes begin at 9:45. At 10:45, children return to the service to participate in the Eucharist. 

Update Fall 2020: 

Church School will begin with virtual lessons in Fall 2020.  Weekly stories, lessons, and activities will be sent through email to review whenever is convenient for your family.  There will also be some fun virtual meet-ups along the way! Be sure to register your child and sign up for Church School emails for the latest information about when we can all gather together again!  Registrations must be completed for ALL children enrolled in church school, even those returning from last year.  Be sure to complete one for each child in your family.  Thank you!

Fall 2020:

This fall, our lessons revolved around Moses and the story of his life.  There is so much to learn about God's love for us through Moses's story.  Hopefully, these lessons can help teach about how God protects us, loves us, and how we should always trust in Him.
