Grace Church’s Christian Education for Children
Sunday school for children ages 4–12 years, meets at 10:30 am (10:00 am during summer months) during the first half of the adult church service. Then the children join the congregation for the children’s homily and Communion.
Our Sunday school curriculum is the multi-age “Seasons of the Spirit.” Children ages 4–12 meet in one or two groups, depending on attendance, and hear the week’s Bible story. The teachers guide a discussion of the story. Then, children participate in an activity—drama, music, craft. Sunday School concludes with a group prayer.
After Sunday school, the children join the adults in the Church for the 3-minute “Children’s Homily” mentioned above, and Communion.
Classes are led by a rotating team of parishioners. The “Seasons of the Spirit” curriculum includes prayer, song, arts and crafts and instruction.
Beginning in Advent Season of 2008, Grace initiated a special “Early Childhood Christian Education” program for our youngest members, ages 0–3.
All are welcome: those whose families attend regularly and those who simply “drop in.”
Care provided on Sundays for children 0 through 5 years of age, from 9:30 am–12:30 pm. To learn more, read the Grace Child Care Guidelines (PDF).
