Christian Education for Children and Youth
Children and youth ages 3 years to grade 12 have Sunday School every week during the program year (mid-September through early June) at 9:30 a.m., between the two Sunday services.
Children ages 3 to 6 will learn the big stories of our faith through the Beulah Land curriculum, a Montessori-inspired program that uses storytelling and visual aids to invite them into the story.
Elementary-aged children (grades 2 – 5) will dig deeper into the Gospel using a lectionary-based program provided by The Episcopal Church. The games, stories, and activities focus on finding and sharing the Good News of God’s unconditional love in Jesus, and how are all called to be that love in the world.
The middle school (grades 6 – 8) and high school (grades 9 – 12) classrooms will use the lectionary as a springboard to talk about God in their lives and to grapple with the big questions of living as a person of faith, hope, and love in this complicated world.
