Christian Education for Children and Youth
Opportunities for children and youth to engage their faith include Sunday school and confirmation classes, youth group, service projects, mission trips, and worship leadership.
Sunday school classes meet most Sunday mornings at 9:45 for forty-five minutes before joining the congregation in worship. One Sunday a month, there are no classes allowing for families to attend the entire worship service together. For our Sunday school calendar, click here.
In 2019-2020, we will have three Sunday school classes, staffed by a committed group of volunteer teachers. Our youngest children (pre-K through 2nd grade) will continue to enjoy Godly Play. Our 3rd through 5th graders will begin the year using StoryMakers, a brand new curriculum written by a New York City based group of artists, theologians and writers. Later in the year, they will be learning more about what it means to be an Episcopalian.
For our middle school class, our clergy will be developing a curriculum which encourages them to dive into the stories of some of our ancestors in the faith and read first hand of their struggles, failures, and shortcomings and how God related to them and loved them through it all. We hope this will provide a backdrop for how our youth experience God in this ever-changing world and in their ever-evolving faith journeys.
Our high school youth meet monthly on Wednesday evenings for fellowship and outreach. This year the group will also visit the Auschwitz exhibition at the Musuem of Jewish Heritage in New York City as well as take a vertical tour of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and have some fun at an escape room in White Plains. In June, youth will again participate in a mission trip as part of the Appalachian Service Project.
If you have questions about any of our programs for children and youth, please reach out to the Rev. Tami Burks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you and your children!
