Our Vision:

Grace Church Sunday School is a ministry for young children to learn about faith, church, and themselves. Our vision is a Sunday School where children learn about Christianity and the tradition of the Episcopal Church, are a part of the Grace Church family, are nurtured in their personal relationship with God, grow as disciples of Christ, and are encouraged to link their faith with the world around them.


At Grace we are blessed with a great group of young people! Sunday School is where these younger members of our community begin their lifelong journey of exploration—a fun, welcoming place where we share the stories and traditions of our community. Through chapel and high-quality, developmentally-appropriate education, Sunday School provides a crucial cornerstone of our children’s early experience of the church. Our Coordinator of Children’s Ministries works with a core group of dedicated adults to lead this important ministry. Sunday School begins at 10 a.m. with classes offered at five levels. After enjoying their class sessions, children go to Children’s Chapel with their teachers before returning to their families in the service during the Exchange of the Peace.

Class Levels:

– Pre-K (Potty-trained 3 & 4 year olds)
– Kindergarten
– 1st & 2nd Grades
– 3rd & 4th Grades
– 5th & 6th Grades

Theme & Curriculum:

Our theme for the 2017-2018 program year at Grace Church is Racial Justice: Finding Redemption through Truth-Telling. We live in country divided by many things, particularly, by race. Yet, Jesus shows us that love can overcome anything. We believe that the love of Christ can break down any wall that divides us. Our goal this year is to help our youngest members learn about God’s love for the world and God’s desire for us to love one another. Our curriculum for this exciting year is Spark: Active Faith Lectionary curriculum by Sparkhouse. Through lectionary-based curriculum, children are provided with the core stories of our faith and develop their understanding of who God is. This curriculum may be supplemented with material by church staff and Grace’s Wade in the Water Ministry to better fit our children’s formation needs.
