Each year, children in our fourth grade Sunday School classes work on learning the books of the Bible. Each student who completes this task is presented with a Bible.
He, She, We and God - Faith and Human Sexuality
He, She, We and God is a unique opportunity to place the gift of sexuality within our Christian Faith. The program is designed especially for our fifth grade "tweens" (not yet teenagers, they are in be"tween") and their parents. The leaders for the event are parishioners who are committed to making a connection with the tweens and helping them see that our community is interested in them during these important years of growth and change.
Dates for 2017-18: December 1-2 and January 19-20. Register here.
Dates for 2018 TBD
This class is a wonderful opportunity for parents (or grandparents, sometimes) and children in Kindergarten through 4th grade to learn more about the traditions surrounding the Eucharist, led by clergy and the Director of Children's Ministry. Families should plan to attend both sessions. Lunch will be provided. Childcare for younger siblings is available upon request.
