Christian Education

Feeding Our Lambs

Linda Jones, Director of Christian Education

The mission of the Christian Education Program is designed to evangelize and disciple parents and children who are members and visitors of the Church of the Apostles. One of our paramount goals as Christians is found in Matthew 28:19. "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations..." We specifically accomplish this task by growing Christians (young and old alike) in their journeys. Our Education Program at the Church of the Apostles is designed to guide and supplement personal and family Christian instruction.

Christian education is offered every Sunday from 9:15 am to 10:15 am for adults and children.

The classes for children ages 3 through High School follow a three year curriculum.

Little Lights (ages 3 thru kindergarten) and Followers (grades 1 thru 3): The children learn about heroes of the faith, stories from their children's Bible, and memorize Bible passages. If you ask the children why they come to Sunday School, they will answer: "to learn about God; to pray to God; to praise God; to worship God; to think about God; so we can learn how to pray; so kids know that God created us; learning about God is fun; I love God; God gave me talents and lots of friends; and God died for us all."

Ambassadors (grades 4-6): The focus of this class is on the Bible, the Sacraments, the Church and its history and famous reformers of the Church. If you ask the child why they are here, they will say: "to learn the Word of God and how to follow in Jesus' footsteps; to learn how to pray and to teach people more about God."

Workers (grades 7-9): Using the teen study Bible this class reads and discusses books from the Old Testament.

Disciples (grades 10-12): Through Bible reading, discussions and writing assignments, the students are learning about evangelism, the sovereignty of God and how to apply God's word in their day to day lives.

Adults: Christian education is offered every Sunday in the parish hall from 9:15am to 10:15 am.
