The Sunday school program is running every Sunday during the service. It is led by our dedicated volunteers Andrea, Karen, Meghan, Milada, Donna and their helpers Oliva and Hannah.
This time we have 2 main groups - younger group is for children from 3 to7 and older group from 8 to 12 year old.
We also prepare NURSERY program. We are looking for some volunteers who could help us.
Since October 14 we start with a new musical program which will be parto of every Sunday School - "God´s Children Sing" which will be provided by Nathalie Tsoy.
God’s Children Sing - MUSIC PROGRAM FOR KIDS
God’s Children Sing draws its central themes from the sharing of our faith with children and aims to bring the family into the music, movement, and faith experience. Through music, movement, story-telling, and praying experiences child’s faith can be strengthened, enhanced, and enlivened. Opportunity for sharing the life of faith can be encouraged through song, dance, and creative expressions, which are such a natural part of the young child’s world.
Coming to know God as the Creator and Sustainer of all living things is encouraged through hand-on experiences and encounters with nature. To “know” a child must ”touch”. A child’s nature sense of wonder at plants, birds, animals, and insects leads him/her to explore and discover the world in which he/she lives and the God who created it.
This program promotes musical development in young children within the context of nurturing life of faith. Though joyful participation in songs, stories, music-making, movement activities, and moments of worship in each lesson, young children will become more aware of God’s love for them and for all of Creation. As a result of these musical activities experienced in a Christian community and family, children will grow to give voice to their developing musical expression, faith, and praise of God.
Each session contains 15 lessons that are structured to be the basis of a 45 minute period with a group of 8-12 children meeting once a week.
Over time children learn the joys of coming together for a group activity, especially when music is involved! The Listening Time, the Scripture Reading and Singing Game at the end of the lesson encourage their incipient sense of the faith community.
