Sunday School

Welcome to St. Edward’s Christian Formation Programs

 

“Christian Faith Formation in The Episcopal Church is a lifelong journey with Christ, in Christ, and to Christ.”

– The Charter for Lifelong Christian Formation, approved by the 2009 General Convention

 

The St. Edward’s Christian Formation ministry offers faith formation opportunities for people of all ages on Sunday mornings, October through May. Classes are not held on monthly 2nd Sundays.

Children
Classes for children are held during the 10:15 service, immediately following the children’s homily.

Pre-K-K (ages 3 1/2, 4 and 5) A modified Godly Play format actively engages the children as they listen to a Bible story and express the story through hands-on activities.

Grades 1-3 The Episcopal Childrenʼs Curriculum (ECC) is used as a guide for topics. Children in this class enjoy Bible stories, conversation and activities especially planned for them.

Grades 4-6 Using the ECC as a guide, discussions and activities center around faith and life issues relevant for the children.

Grades 7-12 The teens have an opportunity to gather for casual conversation about matters of faith, life experiences and topics brought to the table by the teens.
Special topics: In addition to the individual classes, the children, teens and teachers meet several times a year as one large class for special topics.

Outreach Ministry: The children are engaged in outreach ministry through a local food bank. We visited the food bank to “see and learn” more about this ministry. The children are integral in planning their participation and service in the food bank ministry.

Adults
Please visit the Adult Forum page for more information on this class.
