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.
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.
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.
Middle School (6th - 8th grade): All Saints Center, Room 209
This year, our Middle Schoolers will continue with the Weaving God’s Promises curriculum. Youth will become engaged through prayer, story, and multiple activities, and are taught connections to Episcopal traditions and the seasons of the church year.

High School (9th - 12th grade): All Saints Center, 2nd Floor
9th - 12th Grade: Room 204
Our High Schoolers will engage with Teen Text, a diverse and educational curriculum that encourages youth to “go deep, be real, and let go.” Teen Text “promotes discussion, critical thinking, and creative listening.” Every week, the youth will work with the following central questions: What is happening in the story? How is this happening in the world around me? How is this story my own story?

10th - 12th Grade Confirmation: Room 200
This class is designed for 10 - 12th graders to help them gain a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, what that means in the Episcopal context, and how they fit into their tradition. Table leaders will work closely with 6 - 8 youth to talk, pray, listen, and give support as they journey through the Confirmation process.

The Rector's Forum: McKissick Refectory
We have all heard of Vardry McBee, but do you know which rector of Christ Church was almost assassinated? Who gave the gift that paid for the south transept of our church? Who the first person to be baptized into our parish? This fall the we will explore the history of this wonderful parish and see how our past informs our present and future.Taught by The Rev. Dr. Harrison McLeod.

Each week, there will be guest speakers in the Rector's Forum. See the schedule below:
      December 17: Cecil Nelson will speak on Haiti

Bringing Sunday Home: Graham Library
Ever notice how quickly Sunday fades in the rearview after you leave Christ Church on Sunday mornings? We can help you close the gap between Sunday and the rest of the week. Come join The Rev. Jay Biedenharn as we learn more the greatest story the world has ever known and how you can find your place in it. This class is geared for Young Adults, but all are welcome.

Faith Perspectives: Room 223
This fall our class will be reading Joan Chittister’s The Ten Commandments, Laws of the Heart. In it, she addresses questions about what it means to love God and our neighbor, to be born in the image of God, and also considers the Two Great Commandments. Facilitated by Sandy Carr and Kathy Lefkowitz.

Ministry & Muffins: Arrington 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.

Inquirers' Class: Sundays, October 8 - 29, Earle Conference Room

The class will be discussion-based sessions led by clergy 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. Questions? Contact Emily Davis, 672.4152.
