CHILDREN'S AND YOUTH Ministries GODLY PLAY (AGE 2–ELEMENTARY SCHOOL)
BECOMING BELOVED COMMUNITY (HIGH SCHOOL)
Godly Play, our Sunday School classes for children age 2 through fifth grade, take place Sundays at 10:10 a.m. Helping parents to access age-appropriate ways to participate in and reflect on our liturgical life, our sacred stories, our call to Christian service, our charge to share the Good News, and our shared spiritual life is essential to our ministry with children. Godly Play is at the heart of our Sunday morning classes and the Godly Play philosophy permeates all that we do with children and families at the Cathedral.
At each baptism in the Episcopal church, several questions are asked of those wanting to begin a new life in the community of Christ. While some of these questions are about belief, others detail practices which sustain us in the work of “seeking and serving Christ in all persons.” In preparation for our pilgrimage to the Legacy Museum on October 19, the high school Sunday School class will explore how Christians in this region of the U.S. have both succeeded and failed in their practices to “honor the dignity of every human being.” Join us for conversations about how our faith calls us to engage the legacy of our shared history. We meet in Room 368 from 10:10–11 a.m. (Please note: Students need not attend the pilgrimage to participate in Sunday classes. The themes and ideas that will be presented in class are applicable to everyday life and all youth are encouraged to attend).
COLABORATE: BIBLE STUDY (MIDDLE SCHOOL) Sixth through eighth graders: join us for middle school Sunday School! This year we will take an in-depth look into the New
Testament. Based on the “Colaborate: Bible Study” curriculum by Sparkhouse, we will use activities, videos, and scripture to ask questions such as, “Why do we hold Paul in such high esteem, given his poor track record with Christians?” and “Where did the Bible take place?” We meet in Room 382 from 10:10–11 a.m.
