Overview of Sunday School
“Then Jesus took a small child. Jesus stood the child before the followers. Jesus held the child in his arms and said, “If a person accepts children like these in my name, then that person is also accepting me. And if a person accepts me, then that person is also accepting the God that sent me.”
How we treat those from whom we can receive no status determines our heart. In Jesus’ day, children were not held to be overly important in the social pecking order. In many ways, that is still true today — notice how day-care workers and teachers are still among the lowest paid professional workers in many modern countries. So Jesus reminds his followers that the way they welcome, treat, and value children reveals a great deal about their hearts. What does it say about our own?
St. Andrew’s is pleased to offer the following Sunday morning programs for our children:
- Little Explorers: a beautiful nursery & preschool for babies and toddlers up to age 3
- Divine Detectives for ages 4 – grade 3
- The Holy Sherlocks for grades 4, 5, 6
All of our leaders & assistants have been screened through our Leading With Care policy.
On Communion Sundays students from grade 4 and up are invited to return to the worship service to participate in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. If parents wish their children may remain with the Divine Detectives class until the end of the service. The children who remain on the 2nd floor will participate in their own “feast”.
