Calendar - Education

Christian Education is not just for children. We believe that learning about God is a lifetime education so we provide many opportunities for young and old alike to gather and study God's Word and apply it to their lives. 

We have Sunday School for the young ones, and many Bible study groups that meet throughout the week . New participants are always welcome.

 

Sunday School

This program is offered during the Sunday worship service for children age 3 to Grade 6. Children join their parents for the start of the service and then are dismissed to their own age-appropriate program after the Pastor's Children's Message. Bible stories, songs, crafts and special activities help to lead Jesus' precious children to a better understanding of their Lord and Savior. Sunday School is taking a break for the summer, but child care is available in the nursery during the sermon for children up to 5 years of age.  Crafts and other special projects are provided for the children who remain in the pews with their parents.

An organizational meeting for the Sunday School program will be held on Sunday, August 5, immediately after the worship service, to begin preparing for the fall programs. Anyone with a heart for leading children to Christ is welcome to attend. Bring a bag lunch.

 

for the little ones ...

A nursery is provided during the sermon for children under three years of age. Bring your little ones to the Nursery after the Children's Message. Children are picked up by their parents in time to accompany them to Holy Communion. Please ask an usher if you need directions to the Nursery.

For parents who prefer to keep their young children with them in the pew there are activity bags with crayons and quiet toys for young children available from the rack near the back of the church. Coloring sheets and crayons are also available. Ask the ushers if you need assistance finding this area. Help yourself to a bag, enjoy the contents and then return the bag to the hanger at the end of the service. 

There is also a Parents Room located at the back of the worship area. This room has soundproof one-way glass and a sound system so that parents can still watch and hear the worship service.  

Faith Foundations (Youth)

Faith Foundations confirmation classes are held every second Monday during the school year so young people from Grade 7 up can explore the basics of the Christian faith and work on developing the skills they need to navigate life as a Christian. Faith Foundations is a requirement for young people wanting to become confirmed members of the congregation. This is a modular program so new students may begin at the start of any module. To register or confirm class dates please contact the church office. Confirmation class will resume in September.

Bible Studies for Adults

Many of our midweek studies are taking a break for the summer. However, our Sunday morning Adult Bible Study will continue to meet at 9:30 am each and every Sunday during the summer.  Grab a cup of coffee and delve into the Word of God with the community of believers at St. Paul's.
