Sunday School Program
Theohare Kapellakis & Ranya Karatzoulidis, Program Co-Directors
- The children attend the Divine Liturgy arriving at 10:10 AM and seated at the first left pews. After Holly Communion they are directed to the Υouth Center/School Building were the Sunday School classes take place.
- Each class will be assigned a prayer which they will practice. It is our school's goal students learn this prayer (older classes may be assigned more than one) by heart. However, one day a week is not enough to develop a child’s prayer life. We ask that you pray with your child each morning and evening and incorporate their Sunday School class prayer into your family prayers.
- Children usually receive Holy Communion every Sunday. If your child should not receive for some reason, please instruct him or her PRIOR to dropping them off to Sunday School.
- Parents are requested to pick up their child from the Youth Center/School Building after the completion of the Services
The mission of our Sunday School program is based on an approach which prepares the students with the principles of the Orthodox Faith, encouraging them to grow in God’s service. Our program builds a solid foundation for the children of our community through exemplary lessons in the teaching and the Worship Practices of the Greek Orthodox Christian Faith, using the fundamental tools of:
|Worship||participating in community worship and private prayer|
|Community||sharing in the total life of the church|
|Discipleship||learning how to follow Jesus Christ and His Gospel Message|
|Service||serving the needs of others in and around the community|
|Witness||fulfilling Christ’s mission in the world|
Through these intertwined tools we hope each child has received not only the communication of Christian truth called Orthodoxia, but also a formation of Christian Character by living a lifestyle representative of our Christian Faith called Orthopraxia.
