Sunday School


 

Sunday School of Sts. Peter and Paul Greek Orthodox Church

Welcomes You to the 2017-2018 school year!

 

 

Our goal is to make Sunday mornings a fun learning experience for the children. We hope to accomplish this through age-appropriate crafts, songs, discussion and group activities and attending the Divine Liturgy.  Living our faith begins with the family.  Please lead your children in prayer, make the  sign of the cross together, pray  the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, etc. at home and as we reinforce this at Sunday School.

  • Children must be four years of age

 ATTENDANCE & CERTIFICATES:

  • When selecting students for roles in performances/functions, attendance will be taken into consideration as practices occur during Sunday School.

OFFERINGS:

  • We ask that students bring a small offering to class each week.  This teaches stewardship and encourages the children to take pride in their Church Community through active participation and support.

HOLY COMMUNION:

  • The importance of Holy Communion and how to prepare is something Father Konstantine would like to emphasize this year. Father Konstantine is asking that the parents discuss this with their child and prepare them to receive Holy Communion
  • It is very important to notify the teachers if your child is not prepared to receive Holy Communion.

COMMUNICATION:

PARENTAL HELP:

  • We are looking for parents who would like to join our Sunday school team in assisting us with various items including Feast Day Celebration set up/clean up, monitoring and assisting with planned Activities

We wish you all a blessed

Sunday School Year!
