Every year the church school program is built around a theme, which is reinforced by our weekly “Big Meeting” and our end-of-year Children and Youth Sunday service. (Recent themes have been Justice, Compassion, Friendship and Gratitude, Fruit of the Spirit.)
In our 2017-18 Church School year (see calendar below), we will be focusing on the Prayer. We will spend the year learning about different types of prayers, the various ways to pray, and the meaning of prayer. The children will also have the opportunity to memorize some prayers, as well as write some for the church service. We will make prayer beads and have a prayer box to use at Big Meeting. Note: Church school does not meet on Communion Sundays, which are the first Sunday of each month.
