Sunday School

St. Paul’s offers Sunday School classes from 9:30-10:30 AM each Sunday during the school academic year for ages 3 through high school.  Classes are held in the church’s Education building. The classes use Concordia Publishing House’s “Growing in Christ” curriculum, which is designed to teach the same weekly lesson to all ages through age-appropriate activities.

During Sunday School, teachers and children (up through 6th grade) gather in room #9 for the first 15 minutes to sing songs and hear an opening message that introduces the lesson. They then go to their individual classrooms for hands-on crafts and activities. The children explore the Bible while making connections to how the messages apply today and how God reveals His continual presence and care in our lives. The fall curriculum (September-November) covers lessons in the Old Testament, and the winter (December-February) and spring (March-May) curricula cover lessons in the New Testament.

The Sunday School staff and the church’s Board of Education provide on-going support for parents and children, such as through posting lesson summaries in the “Seedlings” blog (What’s New > Member Posts > Seedlings), organizing the annual children’s Christmas program, and hosting an end of the school year celebration. On the first Sunday in the academic year and selected Sundays during the year, children participate in intergenerational Sunday School sessions in lieu of individual classes to study together and share an activity, such as wreath making at the start of the Advent season.
