Sunday School Formation at St. Benedict provides a multi-age Christian education learning environment where the children of St. Benedict's, ages 5 thru 12, encounter the meaning and mysteries in the Bible through sharing, stories, acting, and art & crafts. This group meets 2 times a month.
Youth ages 12+ are invited to join the Youth Bible Study 1 Sunday every month.
All children will stay in church with their family 1 Sunday a month. See schedule below.
Sunday School and Youth Bible Study are held from 10:45am to 11:30am during the school year. Children and Youth gather with their parents at the beginning of the 10:30 service, have a short children's homily and then dismiss to Sunday School with their teachers. The children are brought back to the service for the Peace, and complete the end of their worship time with their families.
Sunday School currently serves the needs of 5-12 year olds with a multi-age curriculum provided by Seasons of the Spirit. The class is led by Johannah Renfroe - "Miss Jo." The formation begins with a ritual, an opening prayer, and a guiding question. The children then listen to a brief story from the Bible followed by a reflection. We conclude with an activity or craft.
In 2016-2017, we will use the Seasons of the Spirit Lectionary-based curriculum. Additionally, we will set the goal to have all children memorize the Lord’s Prayer and be able to name and share three-five favorite biblical stories from both the Old and the New Testament including The Great Flood, Joseph’s Coat, the 10 Commandments, Egypt’s Plagues, John the Baptist, Jesus’s birth, Jesus’s parables, the Sermon on the Mount, and the Last Supper.
We are currently in a period of discernment as we look into Johannah leading this group on a twice-per-month basis. This should allow the children to spend a little more time in worship with the congregation. This will also allow all members of the church to get to know these amazing, intelligent children even better.
