Sunday School at St. Andrew’s

St. Andrew’s Sunday School is lead by Bob and Nadia who involve the children in interesting arts and crafts and creative bible study.
People who go to church on a regular basis have better mental and physical health compared to people who do not be long to a spiritual community. Religion/spirituality in teens is associated with lower rates of substance use, delinquency, depression, suicide risk, and anxiety. We invite parents to enhance the health development of their children by the he whole family participating in a faith community.
Our Sunday school helps children to develop a spirituality based on the Bible and on prayer that focuses on the indwelling presence of Christ. We encourage leadership development in the children by ministering to others and by taking an active role in our congregation’s worship service.
We engage the children in art projects to help express aspects of the mystery of Christ which cannot be communicated through words alone (2 Cor 12:4).

Have a look at some of the projects the children have been involved with.

Animal Metaphors in the Bible: “They will be lifted up like on wings like the Eagle”
Eagles are lifted up by the air. The air is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It is the wind of the Holy Spirit that lifts us and renews us so that we do not become weary.

Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed. Easter 2019

A flaming christian heart beats strongly in all of us.

 

The Sunday School children all worked together to create a wonderful happy Easter presentation for 2018. The gathering of the birds to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The colorful birds are happily singing and celebrating the forgiveness of our Lord Jesus.

May someone hold you close tonight
And may you never wake alone.
May you have food to eat,
And may you never wake hungry.
May you sleep in a safe and quiet place,
And may you never wake to the sound of fighting.
May you have someone to love and protect you,
And may you never wake in fear.
May you have a shelter over your head,
And may you never wake in the cold.
May you always know
That you are one of God’s beloved,
And may you never wake alone.

Children are important at St. Andrew’s. We take Christian education seriously.

The training up of children who, for fear of punishment, know what to say, and when to say it? Not on your life. We have a talented group of teachers and curriculum designers:––including the Minister, whose work has been published by Seasons of the Spirit . Our goal? To expose children to the richness of God’s Word, and work, and world––and to encourage them to reflect on its significance for themselves.
