- Group 2 –Together With God, Loving God
- Group 3 – God Calls Us
- Group 4- You are the Future of The Church/ Community Project
Group 1: Preschool- God Loves Us
This class material focuses on the basic fundamentals of the Orthodox Faith, with a lot of hands on crafts. There will be an emphasis on Bible Stories and Bible Verses for each week.
Group 2: Elementary- Together With God & Loving God
This class material focuses on introducing children to the liturgical life of the church. There is an emphasis on “field trips” into the church to help conceptualize what this means. Again, lots of hands on activities and crafts.
Group 3: God Calls Us
This class material focuses on living the Orthodox Faith, and what that means in reality for each student. Many stories of Saints, and biblical heroes who lived the faith and how we can emulate these heroes.
Group 4: – Zines-What do you Stand for? / Community Project
This class material focuses on doing what God Calls Us to do. The series of Zines,( see attached explanation) and What do you Stand for is a book that helps students identify what God is telling them their role in the Church and the community going forward is and should be. In January, students will be given a structured platform, from which they will create and execute a project that introduces St. George youth to the Prescott community, reaching a goal that serves an organization’s need and dedicates time and effort to make progress. They will be expected to invent, organize, and manage an event that will be carried out during Bright Week.
Dear Parents of Sunday School Children,
The first day of classes for our 2014-15 Sunday School year will take place on
Sunday, September 7th. We look forward to welcoming your children to our Sunday School program!
Children will go directly to their classroom to meet their teachers on the first day!
Registration Fees for Sunday School have been waived for the 2014-2015 year. If you would like to
contribute a donation to the Sunday School, please indicate it on your check to the church.
Sunday School begins at 9:15 a.m. every Sunday morning unless otherwise specified.
Please make every effort to have your children at church no later than 9:15!
We are looking forward to a very productive year. We believe that Sunday school is one of the most
important activities for our children. It gives them a valuable opportunity to become more familiar
with God and His Church, the Holy Sacraments, Tradition and Scripture.
We invite and encourage all parents of students to attend the first class on September 7th, for the first
15 minutes to see what your student will be learning this year. If you have any questions, you can either
approach the teacher after liturgy, or call them during the week.
On behalf of the Sunday School Staff,
Carissa Maxwell, Director
***** Children must be 3 years old by Sept. 1st for Sunday School. Any Children under the age of 3 that would like to attend need to be accompanied by a parent. *****
