Children's Sunday School
Sunday School for children is an integral part of Holy Comforter’s Christian Education. Currently the children are divided into two groups, infants through age 4, and age 5 through age 10. Both groups meet during the 10:30 service year-round.
The smaller children meet in the nursery/classroom area on the main floor for age appropriate stories and activities. Parents drop their children off before church and pick them up either before the Eucharist or immediately following the service.
The older children begin in the sanctuary and, following a short children’s sermon with the priest, head downstairs to the parish hall with their teachers for the weekly lesson. The lessons are highly interactive and include videos, songs, games, and reinforcement activities. Once a month science experiments are a popular segment. Children return to the Sanctuary prior to the Eucharist.
The program for Advent covers the three years of Jesus’ ministry, the Last Supper, Palm Sunday and the Crucifixion.
We plan to expand our program for the youngest set. As babies become toddlers and preschoolers, we will be introducing them to Bible stories, songs, and age-appropriate activities.
Anyone interested in helping with Sunday School or our younger set, please let the Church office or Julianne Chester know. If you have a special skill or hobby that you'd like to share with the children, we'd love to make it happen!
