Children's Sunday School

Our Children’s Ministry is dedicated to children and their families to learn how to find their walk in the light of Christ. This year we will continue to use the Whirl Curriculum for our 4K-2nd graders. It will focus on children learning Bible stories that relate to the Episcopal Church calendar, lectionary and their personal lives. Each week they will learn a story that was heard in worship then they will have a leaflet that they bring home to share with their family. We hope this will grow the relationship they have with Christ and the church.

This year our 3rd and 4th graders will be taught by Suzanne Dantin and assisted by parents. Topical lessons, service, journaling and connecting with God’s creation (getting outside!) will all be included. For the Fall schedule,
please click here.

Sundays 10:10am to 11:05am all children meet in the gym to find their nametags and begin together.  The students will then break into their classrooms.

4K and 5K with Teachers Brandy Gutierrez, Bess Lee, Jenny Moore and Assistant, Julie Rodrick

1st and 2nd grade with Teachers Sally Gaskins, Mary Reid and Matt and Elizabeth Cox

3rd and 4th grade with Suzanne Dantin and parent volunteers 

Nursery is offered Sunday mornings and will be offered at every Wednesday night dinner. When you RSVP for dinner please let them know if you will be using the nursery.

Young Families

Young Families gather for activities that are fun for all ages and that promote fellowship and relationships among our children and their parents. If you have children ages K3- 5th grade, plan to participate in these special events.

Special Children’s Offering 1st Sunday every month! Each month, children will come to the chancel steps to present their offering. Suzanne Dantin and Laura Estevez will be at the steps with baskets to receive the offering. Our December Children’s Special Offering will be canned goods for TOTAL Ministries and St. Matthew’s Food pantry. Both organizations are very low on canned goods. Suzanne will use the Remind App to let you know what the offering focus is each month. Thank you parents for supporting our commitment to teaching children about loving others and offering gifts in honor of all that God has given us.

Kid’s Crew: Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday, from 6:30-7pm, children ages K4-4th grade, join Miss Suzanne in the Gym for free play, games, art projects and even yoga!!  

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School – June 26-29, 2017. Liza Lounsberry and Jenny Moore are the chairs for this year’s VBS. We will be travelling to Ancient Rome to learn from none other than the Apostle Paul! Our mornings will be spent singing, learning about the Bible, making crafts and playing games. You will not want to miss this fun adventure. Online registration is available on the church’s website or you can download and send in a print registration form.

Supplies Needed. In order to transform our church into a Roman village and marketplace, we are in need of the following items:  artificial greenery, pottery, baskets, extra sheets, and canopy tents. Please let me know if you would be willing to share any of these items with us for the week of VBS.

If you’d like to volunteer with VBS, please contact Suzanne Dantin at sdantin@churchofadvent.org or 864-504-3693.
