The mission of the St. Paul’s Sunday School is to shape our children in the way of Jesus Christ, rooted in the Episcopal tradition. We teach with an emphasis on helping them them know God, know our life together as the Church, and know our personal and unique ways of joining Christ’s Mission in the World.
Our primary goal is to insure that the youngest members of our parish feel important and cared for. Our teachers are volunteers from within the church who follow a weekly curriculum that teaches pertinent stories from the Bible. We also do arts and crafts, engage the children in timely and meaningful conversations, form lasting friendships, and develop a love of helping others.
Sunday School includes elementary aged children through grade 4. In 5th grade children have various options including helping with our younger children, Youth Group, serving as acolytes or ushers during the church service, or simply attending church. Children are also always welcome to attend church services with their parents at any time.
We also offer several special events surrounding the holidays and other special times of the year.
Sunday School meets every Sunday morning during the 10:30 am Service. We start at 10:30 am and the children join their families in church in time for Communion. Free nursery and toddler care is available each Sunday in dedicated rooms staffed by paid, trained adults.
The Sunday School year begins on the Sunday after Homecoming Sunday in September and ends in June. Children are welcome to join Sunday School at any time throughout the year. Nursery and Toddler care is offered year-round.
