Church School begins on Sunday, September 9, 2018 with a blessing of the students and teachers during the first Divine Liturgy. Classes will follow at 10:30am. A table will be set up in the Educational Center foyer on this first day of classes to register any new students. If your child has already attended Church School, they are already registered and may proceed to their classroom.
While sleeping late can be nice, have you considered the benefits of Sunday Church School attendance for your child? Here are some reasons to make it a priority in your family:
Age Targeted Teaching: Where else can your kids get Biblical instruction that’s focused toward their developmental abilities? Our curriculum is designed to give them a foundation, so they will under- stand how all the parts of Scripture point to Christ.
Friends: In Church School your child through faith and fellowship, will build positive friendships.
It’s Fun: Our teachers work hard to teach the Bible in ways that are relevant and fun.
A Safe Place: In a world that sometimes seems void of morals, students need a place where good morals and values are encouraged.
Spiritual Mentors: A dedicated teacher can be a Christian role model who supports you and helps inspire the Orthodox faith of your child.
Adult Fellowship: While the children enjoy their class, you can fellowship with other adults at the Coffee Hour.
Send the Right Message: Making Church and Sunday School a priority shows your kids that God’s Word really does matter!
The Church School is always in need of volunteers. If you’re interested in teaching, co-teaching or helping out in other ways, please contact the Church School Director, Pam Gruntkosky firstname.lastname@example.org. You don’t need to have any special talents or skills and you won’t be alone, you’ll be teaching side-by-side with an experienced teacher or two.
A special ‘Thank you’ to two of our Church School teachers who retired this past year, Sandra Ruggieri and Kiki Chakoutis. Both Sandy and Kiki taught Grade 3-4 for many years. They will be missed in the classroom.
