A brand new year begins this month with the start of some new programs in Children and Youth Christian Ed.
Godly Play continues for children from pre-K through grade 5 on Sunday mornings (9 to 10:15 am). These children will be divided into two groups (pre-K to grade 2, grade 3 – 5). On occasion students in grade 6 and older will be helping to tell the stories to the Godly Play classes. Otherwise Middle School and older students will be meeting at a different time.
Sunday classes will assemble in the Chapel at 9 am for a brief Chapel time (10-15 minutes). Children will take turns processing with the cross and candles. There will be a short Scripture lesson and a time to pray. They will process back to the starting place and then be dismissed for class time.
Middle School and High School will meet for classes that will prepare them to receive the sacrament of Confirmation next spring. Students who have already received the sacrament will find that there are other topics and opportunities available here to help nurture their Christian lives. Along with our other studies we will be looking at one of the Gospels in depth, working at different service projects, and participating actively in various aspects of life here at St. Luke’s and in our surrounding community.
As with any of our offerings, all classes for children are open to both members and non-members alike.
