Formation for Adults, Children and Youth this Fall

Youth and Children
3K and 4K  Our youngest Sunday School students will participate in the Little Lambs curriculum, which allows them to explore scripture and their faith in an engaging, age appropriate manner. This class meets downstairs, across from the Children’s Chapel and nursery.
 
5K-2nd Grade This class will continue with the Holy Moly! curriculum, which combines video lessons with storytelling, activities, and discussion. Their teachers will help them understand how their lives relate to the scripture they read each Sunday. This class meets upstairs, in Room 226.
 
3rd-5th Grade Our oldest elementary students will use Episcopal Children’s Curriculum this year, which is new for St. John’s. This curriculum combines ongoing, progressive activities with games and challenges, and incorporates lots of interesting discussion. 3rd-5th graders will meet in
Room 215 upstairs.
 
Middle School & High School
Middle Schoolers & High Schoolers will meet upstairs in their respective youth rooms. There, they will engage in curriculum designed for students their age. Middle Schoolers will cruise through the New Testament, while High Schoolers are taking a “crash course”
on the theology of the Holy Trinity.
