Why Sunday School?
The philosophy of our Sunday School Program is based on a Christo-centric approach which prepares the students with principles of the Orthodox Faith encouraging them to grow in God’s Service. Our program builds a solid foundation for the children of our community through exemplary lessons in the Teaching and Worship Practices of the Greek Orthodox Christian Faith.
The Goals of Our Sunday School Program:
+To encourage all students from nursery age to seniors in high school to participate in our Sunday School Program.
+To make our Sunday School spiritually enriching for our children.

+To provide the staff and students with textbooks and other resources (i.e. craft supplies, videos...) which inspire Christian learning.
+To provide Sunday School students the opportunity to learn about Stewardship and caring for our Church grounds.
+To learn how to work together with one another in the House of God.
+To encourage respect and Christian agape amongst all children of our church.
Sunday School Registration will take place on two Sundays, September 9th and 16th. Classes will start on Sunday, September 16th, 2018. Please make sure your children, grandchildren and godchildren are here to kick off the start of another exciting year of Sunday School.
We ask that children arrive on time for Divine Liturgy at 9:30am, and we encourage them to sit in the reserved Sunday School pews on the left side of the church. Sunday school will start following Divine Liturgy and upon receiving Holy Communion, students will report directly to their classrooms.
We look forward to another great year growing in the faith through worship, ministry, witness and fellowship.
