Saint John’s  Sunday School

Rally Day and Sunday School Registration is September 17, 2017. Classes Begin September 24 at 10:15, after the 9:15 family service

 

Our Theme this year is “Answering God’s Call”

We begin in the Old Testament by learning about Moses with the burning bush and how he led his people out of bondage with the parting of the Red Sea. We continue with stories about Samuel, Gideon, David, Abigail, and Elijah, and Jeremiah.

Children will explore these great stories of the Old Testament through story-telling, games, crafts, and interactive play. Our dedicated Sunday School rooms have been decorated with pictures and scenes from these stories of these faithful men and women who answered God’s call to them.

Our mission is to educate our children in the Christian faith and in the life of this community, providing a firm foundation of faith for our children throughout their lives.

Our vision is to guide our children in discovering the stories of the Bible and applying the lessons we learn to daily life.

We will provide opportunities for:

Fellowship – provide positive interaction that provides encouragement and support

Service – promote opportunities to serve God and minister to others

Outreach – equip and motivate teachers and children to reach people for Christ and incorporate them into the life of the Church

Our Goals:

Study the stories of the Bible in an age appropriate setting

Meet the basic life needs of our children- spiritually, socially, emotionally, etc.

Actively involve our children in Bible study and Sunday School

Provide teacher training in practical ways to guide and motivate children in the learning process

We hope that you and your children will come to St. John’s and worship with us. Sept. 17th is Rally Sunday and after the 9:15 service, we will have games for the children in the playground and information and signups for our church ministries. On September 24th, Sunday School will begin after Eucharist at the 9:15 Service and will end at 10:55 AM.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time!
