Grace Church Sunday School is an excellent opportunity 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 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 a dynamic chapel and high-quality, developmentally-appropriate education, Sunday School provides a crucial cornerstone of our children’s early experience of the church—our breadth and diversity, the places we have traveled and the places we might go. Our Coordinator of Children’s Ministries works with a core group of dedicated adults to lead this important ministry. Each Sunday opens with a children’s chapel at 10:00 AM, followed by classes offered at five levels.
– Pre-K (Potty-trained 3 & 4 year olds)
– 1st & 2nd Grades
– 3rd & 4th Grades
– 5th & 6th Grades
After enjoying their class sessions, children return to their families in the service during the Exchange of the Peace.
Theme and Curriculum:
Our theme for the 2016-2017 program year at Grace Church is “Sharing God’s Grace.” The Bible says we all receive grace upon grace (Jn. 1:16), and at Grace Church, we know that to be true. Grace is God’s love for us, unearned and undeserved. God loves us, not for anything we do or accomplish, but simply for who we are, as children of God, created in God’s image. To help our youngest members learn about God’s grace and how to share it with others, Sunday School lessons will focus on stories and examples of God’s grace. Additionally, throughout the year children will be able to participate in outreach opportunities, extending God’s grace to others. Our curriculum for this exciting year is drawn from the Episcopal Children’s Curriculum.
