Formation classes for children and youth meet on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. during the school year.
For 3 years old – 3rd grade
This class helps children connect at their level, with stories that correspond with the Sunday Lectionary. The lessons are packed with activities, interactive games, and creative crafts.
4th – 8th grade
Connecting kids with God’s big story through videos, Bible exploration and hands on projects.
9th – 12th grade
Formation Through Service
For our older teens in 9th – 12th grades, their Sunday morning formation will take more of a servant approach with them assisting and mentoring in the classes for our younger children. We already have several youth committed to assisting in the classes for our younger children on Sunday mornings and we hope to have additional youth integrated as we move forward. Christian formation for this age group will also be incorporated into EYC along with games, fellowship and sharing a meal on Sunday evenings.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
This formation offering is a Montessori approach to the religious formation of children, rooted in the Bible and the liturgy of the church. It also adheres to the educational principals of Maria Montessori, whose philosophy was to teach children with an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s intrinsic desire to learn. CGS meets on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. All children 3 years old and older are encouraged to join us.
For those wishing to be confirmed, those wishing to reaffirm their faith, as well as other inquiring minds! Learn about the Episcopal Church, our Anglican history, traditions and our rich liturgy and music. These classes are required for confirmation in the Episcopal Church. For those completing the classes, confirmations are done during the Bishop’s annual visitation (usually in the fall of the year).
