Sunday School

To form the life of Christ in all parishioners,
equipping them to share the love of God in the world

A variety of Sunday School offerings meet each week, September through May, from 9:30 - 10:15 AM in various locations on our campus.
Childcare
Infants - K2: 9:15 AM - 12 noon, Parish House, 1st Floor
We provide a safe, warm and unconditionally loving environment for the children entrusted to our care. We offer stories, activities, a snack and when the weather permits, children will enjoy one of the outdoor play areas. Contact Emily Dunlap with questions about the nursery or if you would like to volunteer.
Children
Parish House, 1st and 2nd Floor
We will continue using Weaving God’s Promises for Sunday School, which is rooted in the liturgical year. Children become engaged through prayer, story, and multiple activities, and are taught connections to Episcopal traditions and the seasons of the church year.
Youth
Middle School (6th - 8th grade): All Saints Center, Room 202
This year, our Middle Schoolers will be using Weaving God’s Promises curriculum, which is rooted in the liturgical year. Youth will become engaged through prayer, story, and multiple activities, and are taught connections to Episcopal traditions and the seasons of the church year. Parents will rotate teaching the class.

High School (9th - 12th grade): All Saints Center, 2nd Floor
9th Grade: Room 203
9th Graders will again be watching and discussing the History Channel's "The Bible" series. Youth will watch Bible stories “through live action and cutting-edge computer-generated imagery, offering new insight into famous scenes and iconic characters” (The History Channel). Ben and Mary Horne teach this class.

10th Grade Confirmation: Room 200
We have designed a year-long class to help our 10th graders gain a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, what that means in the Episcopal context, and how youth fit into their tradition. Table Leaders will work closely with 6 - 8 youth to talk, pray, listen, and gain support as they journey through the Confirmation process. Priests and Guest Speakers will teach the class.

11 - 12th Grades: Room 204
Youth will discover what it means to be an adult member of the church community as they explore following Jesus through church leadership and service. The class will emphasize serving Jesus, the church, and others. The class will build upon the promises made in Confirmation, most specifically focusing upon the vow to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.” Students will hear from clergy and lay leaders and they will perform service projects. Holly and Mike Melton and Bob Underwood will facilitate this class. 

Adults
The Rector's Forum: Parish House, McKissick Refectory
The History of the Bible: We will take a closer look at the history of the specific books of the Bible: their authorship, time, place, and intended audience. This class will be an opportunity to learn more about the specific contexts and purposes behind the authors and how their inspiration by the Holy Spirit weaves together the book we know as the Bible. Facilitated by The Rev. Dr. Harrison McLeod.

Inquirers' Class: February 12 - March 19, Earle Conference Room
The Rev. Bob Chiles will lead discussion-based sessions on a wide-range of topics including Theology and Prayer, The Book of Common Prayer, the Bible, and Spirituality and Ethics. Each class stands on its own so if you miss one, feel free to come and join us for the next one! Questions? Contact Emily Davis, 672.4152.

Faith and Family Matters: Parish House, Graham Library
This class offers fellowship and discussions based around strengthening our families through Christianity. Topics and books are to be determined by class participants. Facilitated by Amelia Clinkscales and Christy Clarke.
 
Faith Perspectives: Room 223
This class offers fellowship and discussion focused on spiritual growth and our faith journeys. Faith Perspectives is currently studying The Rebirthing of God: Christianity's Struggle for New Beginnings by John Philip Newell. The main theme of this book is reconnecting Christianity’s wisdom with the fresh stirring of the Spirit occurring today in the Church. This book explores the sacredness of all things created by God and all the relationships we can reclaim in the world. Books are available for purchase in the bookstore.

Ministry & Muffins: AV Room
The focus of this class is to offer time for small group fellowship over coffee and muffins and then enjoy a discussion of the Sunday Gospel. There is no pressure to prepare or study anything before class! We also plan social events 4 - 6 times per year for class members and their families to get to know each other better. Facilitated by Jennifer Sutton and Julie Pitney.
