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 October
Sunday School kicked off the new school year on Rally Day, September 9th! The children all enjoyed hearing a Children’s Message and then returned to their classrooms to get acquainted with their teachers and classmates. We are using a new curriculum this year and bought one age-appropriate Bible for each class and these are a big hit!
The paperwork for this year was e-mailed to all families in early September. It included a list of potential dates as well as the contact information sheet. If you have not yet done so, please return the latter to the office or your child’s teacher at your earliest convenience. The plan is to communicate via e-mail so we want to be sure everything is current. If you need a new sheet, please see me in the office.
The following are some important dates to keep in mind for October:
October 7th – Harvest Sunday – Please bring pet food to be donated to an animal shelter since this is also the day of the “Blessing of the Animals.”
October 7th – Bring a Friend Sunday
October 21st – Catechism (1st graders) & Bible (3rd grade) dedication – 3rd/4th grade class will remain in church for entire service
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.
Before Thanksgiving, we will begin rehearsing for the Christmas pageant (to be held on Dec. 16th) so please begin the dialogue with your child as we will be asking who would like a speaking part, etc.
We are always looking for more people to join our Sunday School staff so please consider volunteering as a teacher, helper, etc. 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 email@example.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you all each Sunday!
