Sunday School at St. Mary’s meets each week during the school year during the 9am services. Children are released from the service about 10 minutes in, and return in time for communion.
Currently we have a class for 3-6 year olds and one for 2nd -5th graders. Both meet in the youth building on St. Mary’s campus. We use the Workshop Cycles curriculum. This allows us to explore one topic for multiple weeks using different workshops. We have stories, games, art, drama, music, and even cooking. Our goal is to provide even our youngest learners with the foundation that Jesus loves them and to live the life we are called to live.
As part of our prayer workshop cycle, we learned to pray without ceasing and took the time to quiet our minds and bodies and listen to God.
If you have any questions about Sunday School at St. Mary’s, please contact Kelly Garner.
We are always in need of teachers for our program. If you are willing to donate an hour of your time once a month, please contact Kelly Garner. The lessons and all supplies are provided, we just need your smiling face, contagious energy and love of the Lord to share with our students!
After a scare from Hurricane Matthew, our Sunday School students learned the story of the Wise and Foolish Builders, which reminds us to build our house on the rock of faith. We even “built” houses with legos!

The Family & Youth Ministry at St. Mary’s reminds you that parents are primarily responsible for their child’s faith formation, and that the church’s role is to support parents in that formation. Sunday School is a great way to do that. Please make sure your children attend class regularly and on time.
