Children are precious.
We feed them, we clothe them, guide them, comfort them and love them.
Then one day they ask a question we can't answer and it usually begins with 'why?'
At Saint Mark's, we believe it takes a family to raise a child and we can help answer the 'why' questions'
Jr. Kindergarten to Grade 6
Children begin their Sunday morning experience as a large group. This is worship time – kid style! This is a time to connect with each other and with God through fun action songs, prayers, and monthly puppet shows. We then break into small groups for in-depth, age-appropriate learning with a carefully screened teacher volunteer.
We currently use the Gospel Light Sunday School Curriculum. This is a solid, bible-based curriculum. Children learn about God through a number of different activities designed to reach children who learn in different ways. Our goal is to not only teach about God, but to help children feel truly connected to God in their daily lives as they come to know Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
We offer four classes divided by age group as follows:
JK and SK
Grades 1 and 2
Grades 3 and 4
Grades 5 and 6
Children are led through a number of projects throughout the year to help them expand their horizons and learn how to "love your neighbour" as Jesus taught us.
Serve your church: kids take time in Sunday School in the weeks leading up to Christmas to learn parts in a Christmas Pageant. The Sunday before Christmas, they lead the congregation in worship, sharing the Christmas message through drama, reading, and songs.
Serve your friends: one Sunday is set aside as "Bring a Friend Day" when kids are helped and encouraged to bring a friend with them to share in Sunday School.
Serve your community: we undertake a project which impacts our immediate community – usually a spring clean-up of a park.
Serve the world: kids take on a project to help people in need in other parts of the world. We give the kids an opportunity to have hands-on involvement in this project. For example, in fall of 2009 they will be putting together kits of basic supplies to be shipped to needy children overseas.
Just come as you are, any Sunday at 9:00 a.m.
Saint Mark's Sunday School...a place to belong.
