St. Paul’s Sunday School program for children from birth through 5th grade is called The Vineyard. Classes meet Sunday mornings from 9:45 until 10:45 from September through May. Visitors are always welcome.
The Vineyard is dedicated to help each child build, strengthen, and live his or her relationship with God. Hands-on, interactive activities are the tools we use to guide the children along their own personal faith journeys. By exploring Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments each year, children are encouraged to discover God and God’s character, to understand the message of the gospel and God’s plan of salvation, and to internalize what it means to be a Christian and to live each day in relationship with God.
We recognize that our children need to experience God’s Word, not just hear it. Through the Workshop Rotation Model approach, we provide opportunities for our children to experience the feeling and meaning of God’s Word through active participation that is not merely “fun and games,” but rather a fully engaged learning process. School age children will explore the Bible and their faith each week in one of five different workshops which utilize hands-on active learning, such as drama, video production, puppetry, first person storytelling, computer, games, art, science, cooking, and more! Preschool children are introduced to learning about God’s love through stories, songs, activities, and crafts.
