Sunday School Classes for Adults, Youth, and Children

Sunday School Classes Resume Sunday, September 11!

9:00 am

Nursery is available for infants and toddlers from 9 am until 12:30 pm. 

  • Godly Play | Pre-School through Elementary School Ages | Lower Level
    The Godly Play approach helps children explore their faith through stories from Scripture and our liturgical tradition. The program follows a Montessori based story-wondering-response model, followed by prayers and a feast that connect children to the Episcopal worship tradition.
    There will be milk, juice, and breakfast treats from 8:50 a.m. – 9 a.m. prior to class. Class runs from 9 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.

 

  • “An Odd Couple: Jonah & Ruth: Lessons for our Fractured World” | Adults | Dorothy Conroy Parish Hall
    September 11 – November 13, 2022
    Brian Schafer – Facilitator
    Jonah shows the original readers of the book, as well as us, what a picture of their bigotry and hatred of foreigners and enemies looks like to God. Ruth shows what life lived in performing deeds of kindness looks like to us and to God.

10:00 am until the offering of the Peace @ Worship

  • Children’s Chapel | Age 3 through 7 years old | Lower Level
    Children’s Chapel is provided for children ages three to seven.. Children’s Chapel, located near the nursery on the lower level of the parish house, includes age-appropriate songs, prayers, and lessons. The children are escorted back to the worship area in time to share Holy Communion with their family and the rest of the adult congregation.

11:30 am (Immediately following the 10 am service)

  • “Anglican Traditions” | Main Level Library | Adults | Dr. Richard Gildrie
    Anglican tradition is an open, loosely guided discussion of various aspects of Anglican spiritual and intellectual experience. Currently we are exploring the books of Genesis and Exodus. The group meets from 11:30 to 12:30 after Sunday services.

 

  • Trinity Youth Sunday School | Grades 6 through 12 | Lower Level Youth Group Room
    6th – 12th graders will come together for fellowship and to reflect on Sunday’s liturgy after the 10 am service on Sundays.

Nursery

Kids of all ages are welcome to attend all services with the family, however infants and toddlers may be more comfortable in the nursery. Nursery is available during the 10 a.m. service and Sunday School hours (starting at 9 am – 12:30 pm, Sept. – May), and during Wednesday evening classes (Sept.- May). 

Please let us know if you plan to bring your child(ren) for nursery by visiting our Nursery Registration Page here .  Families need only complete this once a year.

EfM is a four-year theological education program offered “at a distance” by the School of Theology at the University of the South at Sewanee. Participants commit to one year at a time, and meet weekly in seminars led by a trained mentor. Participants study the Bible, church history, and theology, while learning to engage in theological reflection. This provides a solid education in the foundations of our Christian faith.
