About our Children’s Christian Education
Children's Christian Education: Beginning Age 3, Sunday School begins on September 9 and is offered from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. during the school year.  Students will experience stories from the Bible interactively through crafts and projects as well as age-appropriate discussions.  Our curriculum will also encourage your child to become familiar with the Book of Common Prayer and Episcopal Liturgy.  All children's classes are taught by instructors who have taken Safeguarding God's Children.

We are looking forward to an extra special adventure this fall! Our teachers will guide us through the sometimes misunderstood and more mysterious books of the Bible such as Psalms, Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes! Join us as we navigate our way through these exciting texts!

6th and 7th Grade
Sundays 9:00 am-10:00 am
Rooms 211
As we get into middle school it can be difficult to see where God is calling us. This fall, we will be taking a look at how God is calling us to serve Him using Biblical characters intertwined with modern examples and messages from the media around us! 

Confirmation One and Two 
Brinsden Room,  Rm 217
During the two years of confirmation we have opportunities to better ground ourselves in our identity as Episcopalians. The first year of confirmation class focuses on our understanding of key Biblical stories. During the second year, we learn more about the history and doctrine of the Episcopal Church. Both years help us to better stand our own faith and what it means as Episcopalians to be covenanted with God.

Confirmation Class: 8th and 9th Grade
This is a two year program of faith development providing the students with a foundation upon which to make their decision about Confirmation. The program begins in the 8th grade and will be held on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. Students completing their 2nd year will have the opportunity to be confirmed in the spring.
