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:
- Sunday School Christmas Pageant
- Bring a Friend to Church Sunday
- Harvest Sunday
- Children’s choir
- And many, many more…
Sunday School Update for December
St. Andrew’s Sunday School continues to grow as we welcomed another child to the Pre-K/K class! We continue to collect food for the needy on Harvest Sunday (the first Sunday of each month) and the children enjoy hearing Pastor Dave’s message on those days.
Our Advent celebration began on Nov. 18th with Cyndi Clark giving a presentation on the Advent season to all of the Sunday School students. Each child was given an Advent calendar to share with family members as we prepare for Jesus’ birth.
The Annual Christmas pageant will take place during the 10 AM service on Dec. 16th! We will be presenting “Counting Down to Christmas” and we have begun learning the songs. Over the next month, we’ll be practicing during part of the Sunday School hour and on Dec. 9th after Sunday School. Depending upon how the practices go, we might need an extra rehearsal on Sat., Dec. 15th but you will be notified as soon as we know. The script is humorous while still teaching the children what Christmas is really about! We always need the help so if you have time to volunteer, please let me know as we welcome everyone.
The following are some important dates to keep in mind for late Nov. and Dec.:
Nov. 25th – Pageant rehearsal during Sunday School
Dec. 2nd – Harvest Sunday and pageant rehearsal during Sunday School
Dec. 9th – Pageant rehearsal during and after Sunday School
Dec. 15th – Possible pageant rehearsal (if needed)
Dec. 16th – Annual Christmas pageant during 10 AM service
Dec. 23rd – No Sunday School (attend church as a family)
Dec. 30th – No Sunday School (attend church as a family)
Jan. 6th – Sunday School resumes and Harvest Sunday
I will continue to send reminders of events via e-mail so please be sure to return your child’s “Contact Information Sheet” to the office or your child’s teacher at your earliest convenience so we are able to reach you. If you need a new sheet, please let me know.
If your child’s box of offering envelopes is depleted, please contact me and I will provide you with a new box. These are not dated so they can be used in successive years until finished.
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!
As always, please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. You can reach me via phone at 914-715-9546 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you all each Sunday! Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year!
