Out of 168 hours in the week one hour is devoted to church.
This does not seem like enough. But over a lifetime...
Our goal is to show and teach God’s children, from newborn to adulthood, not only the traditions of our Episcopal church but the whole of Christianity.
Plans for fall children's Sunday School are underway. Registration will begin Sunday, September 18th. Please look for forms in Coffelt Hall or complete the form online. The first class will be on Oct. 2nd from 9:15-10 a.m. We are still in need of volunteers, so if you'd be willing to help teach, plan or assist (no more than once a month), let Amy know. Email and phone can be found in the church directory.
Then, Grades Pre-K through 3rd use a program from Group publishing called FaithWeaver. These lessons focus on teaching the coveted and beloved Bible stories to Redeemer’s children each week. The stories are brought to life with games, group activities and colorful art. The FaithWeaver curriculum provides teachers with clear, concise lessons that engage each student with every task. Every week your child will leave with a worksheet describing what they learned in class so that you too may continue teaching at home.
Our curriculum for 4th grade and up includes a lectionary based curriculum in which the students read, study and discuss the Old and New Testament lessons for the week, as well as the Gospel. This age group also uses "journaling” as a tool to focus on the events of the previous week and how to apply God’s message to daily life. Middle School students return to the congregation in time to hear the sermon and further apply and digest the bible readings for the day.
Bring your children to Sunday School each week so that they can prepare their hearts for God’s mighty word and begin a journey of Christian formation that will last a lifetime.
