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 FEBRUARY

Sunday School resumed after the Christmas/New Year holidays and we are back in full swing. The teachers are completing the first semester curriculum and will be moving on to the second semester curriculum shortly.  Please continue to bring your children to Sunday School each week so they can continue to learn and grow in their faith.

The classes are taking turns decorating the bulletin board in the hallway this year. Please stop by and view their work while enjoying coffee and fellowship after the service. The 3rd and 4th grade class will be responsible for the board in January/February so keep watch for their contributions!

Since the children attend Sunday School during the 10 AM service, they do not have the opportunity to receive Holy Communion so we are trying something new. Once a month, we will be bringing the children into church to either receive Communion or a blessing from Pastor Dave.  So don’t be surprised when you see us show up during the service!

Upcoming date to remember:

Sunday, Feb. 4th – 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 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
