Christian Education for Children/Youth
Sunday School is offered on Sunday mornings at 10:10 —11:00 am during the school year. (Sept.—May). Classes are available for children two years old through high school. We use the lectionary based curriculum Living the Good News and offer two classrooms of Godly Play. We are very flexible with our classes and want each child to feel comfortable and learn about God.
Godly Play is a method of Christian education and spiritual formation for children. “The goal is to teach children the art of using the language of our tradition — parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action — to help them become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives.” We offer two Godly Play Sunday classes during the school year for children ages four to eight.
Vacation Bible School
A week of Vacation Bible School is offered during the summer at Christ Church. This is always widely successful with lots of participation from the congregation and families in attendance.
Christian Education for Adults
We offer a variety of education opportunities starting at 10:10 am including Adult Bible Study, lectures, or book study. Please check out our “ANNOUNCEMENTS” section for the current offerings. During summer months Adult Christian Education is held at 9 a.m.
