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 September
Welcome back to Sunday School! We hope you all had a fun and safe summer and that your children are ready to join their teacher and classmates at St. Andrew’s for another action-packed year! Last year we welcomed several new children and everyone worked hard and learned a lot! The teachers continue to prepare great lessons which the children enjoy each week. Please continue to bring your children to Sunday School each week so they can continue to learn and grow in their faith.
Rally Day, which celebrates the return of Sunday School, will take place on Sunday, Sept. 9th. The children will process into church at the start of the 10 AM service, listen to a children’s message, and then return to their classrooms to kick off the year.
We will continue to celebrate Harvest Sunday by bringing non-perishable food items on the first Sunday of each month, beginning on Oct. 7th. Reminders will be sent via e-mail as well as “hard” copies distributed the previous Sunday.
The Sunday School will be using a new curriculum this year as the one we’ve been using has been discontinued. Pastor Dave and I reviewed the materials and think that this will fit well with our Sunday School. In addition, we have purchased some new Bibles that will work well with the weekly lessons.
We will be making some changes this year which include having the children in the Chapel House (grades 3-7) attend church with their classes on a rotating schedule so that they become more familiar with the liturgy. This will result in the children attending an entire worship service approximately 3 times during the Sunday School year.
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! It’s lots of fun and besides sharing our faith with the kids, we also learn from them. We’d love to have you so please give it your prayerful consideration and let me know if you are interested.
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 in September!
