Children

Welcome to St. Andrew’s Sunday school. Our classes meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM (during the service) throughout the academic school year, from September to June. We currently have 40 children ranging in age from 3 years old through 7th grade enrolled in our Sunday school program.

Children enrolled in St. Andrew’s Sunday school learn about God’s promises from lessons in the Witness curriculum, which is based on Old and New Testament stories. Children experience their lessons in arts and crafts, interactive lessons with music and many hands-on activities.

Our teachers teach children to read and understand the Bible, follow the church service, prepare for 1st Communion, and appreciate the myriad other gifts that are brought to them through Christ’s teachings.

 

Some other activities that our Sunday school children are involved with include:

 

  • Family Sunday
  • Sunday School Christmas Pageant
  • Bring a Friend to Church Sunday
  • Harvest Sunday
  • Children’s choir
  • And many, many more…

 

Sunday School Update for June

The Sunday School year is rapidly coming to a close and it was a great year! The number of children attending has grown and we are so happy to welcome new faces! We hope to see all of the children attending the 9 AM church service throughout the summer so that they can continue to learn about God’s Word and grow in their faith.

On Sunday, May 13th, all of the children planted flowers for their mom or other significant person in their life.  They really enjoyed planting and decorating the cups with colorful stickers.  We’d like to thank Blossom Nursery and the Van Tongeren family for donating the marigolds and potting soil.

Upcoming dates to remember:

  • Sunday, June 3rd – First Holy Communion for 3rd/4th graders; memory work must be completed; Harvest Sunday
  • Sunday, June 10th – Sunday School Awards

Sunday School will resume on Rally Day in September with the date to be determined. Information will be sent in mid-August.  If you have not completed your child’s Contact Information Sheet this year or changed your e-mail address, please let me know as we are trying to send Sunday School information electronically.  If you do not use e-mail, also let me know so I can mail it to you via the post office.

We are always looking for more people to join our Sunday School staff so please consider volunteering as a teacher, helper, etc. We’d love to have you! There are plenty of opportunities to become involved so please give it your prayerful consideration.

Thank you to the Sunday School staff, parents, members of the congregation, and especially to the children for a wonderful year of learning and sharing our faith! I think we all get back more than we give as this service to our children is so rewarding. And special thanks to Pastor Dave, Margy, and Diane for all of your continuous support as it is deeply appreciated by all!

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. You can reach me via phone at 914-715-9546 or by e-mail at epting.susan@gmail.com or at sundayschool@standrewsyorktown.com

Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you each Sunday at the 9 AM service!

God Bless,

Sue Epting
