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…

 Children’s Ministry Update for May

The Sunday School year continues to go well with only two more months until the summer break. We are now competing with the spring sports season so please continue to bring your children to learn about God’s Word as often as you can.  If your child has a game during the time Sunday School is in session, we’d love to see him/her attend the 8:30 church service.

As always, please take a few minutes to view the Sunday School bulletin board during coffee hour. The 5th/6th grade class will be featured next.

If your child has not yet returned the Lenten coin box, please have them bring it to Sunday School within the next few weeks so we can count the coins. We will be donating to Koinonia this year to help with the rebuilding one of the buildings recently destroyed by fire.

Upcoming dates to remember:

Sunday, May 6th – Harvest Sunday

Sunday, May 13th – Mother’s Day craft

Sunday, June 3rd – First Holy Communion for 3rd/4th graders (more info to follow later); memory work must be completed; Harvest Sunday

Sunday, June 10th – Sunday School Awards

As always, please let me know if you need a new box of offering envelopes and also be sure to update your child’s Contact Information Sheet” if you have not already done so this year. It’s crucial that we have your e-mail address as that is the method used to communicate important information.

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 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

Looking forward to seeing you all each Sunday!

God Bless,

Sue Epting
