Sunday school program offers Christian education for children
from nursery through junior high school age. Depending on enrollment,
there may be three to four levels; little lambs (<5 years old);
junior class (5-7); senior class (8-10); and pre-confirmation
class (11-13). Confirmation class is formed when the teachers
and the pastor agree that the children are ready to begin their
training to affirm their faith and become members of the church.
program is led and managed by the Sunday School Coordinator, a church
staff member, under the auspices of the Education Committee. The
chairperson of the Committee is on the Consistory. The teachers
are volunteers and organized into teams of two to three per class
level. Each teacher completes a unit in the curriculum and then
hands the class over to the next teacher on the rotation. Special
activities and programs highlight the joys and miracles of Advent
and Lent. We finish the school year with the Children’s Day
Service, where the children write the Prayers of Confession and
Thankfulness, read the Law and Scripture lessons, and are ushers
for the service.
