Church School at St. John’s is offered during the 11:00 a.m. worship service. Beginning September 18, 2016 until May 21, 2017, students attend classes tailored to their age group. During the summer months, a multi-age class for three to ten year olds is held during the 10:30 a.m. service. All Church School classes take place on the second floor of the Parish House.
Children in this class are dropped off at 10:45 a.m. and stay with their class until the end of the 11:00 a.m. service. After the students are welcomed by a doorkeeper, teachers tell Bible stories from the Montessori-based Godly Play curriculum. Children eat a snack and have an opportunity to respond creatively to the story told that day.
Children arrive at 10:45 a.m., and then join the congregation for the Holy Eucharist with their teachers. Children in this classroom follow a curriculum called Spark, which you can preview here. In the 2015-2016 church school year, students will explore the Old Testament stories in the fall and New Testament stories in the winter and spring.
Children arrive at 10:45 a.m., and then join the congregation for the Holy Eucharist with their teachers. Children in this classroom follow a curriculum called Connect, which you can preview here.
