Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” -- Matthew 19:14 NKJV
School program at All Saints' is one in which we are deeply
Our Kids 4 Christ program debuted in September 2005, bringing All Saints' programs for children to a whole new level.
We believe that children have a very important relationship with God, and our dedicated teachers and leaders seek to nurture that relationship.
programs offer children at every level a fun and energetic envrionment
where we explore our relationship with God through music, stories,
games, skits, arts & crafts, and discussions. The
children are divided into three groups:
Each week, our children and their families gather in the Parish Hall at 9:30 a.m. The children will greet each other, sing and learn new songs, and then depart to different classrooms for their lessons. They process into the church to join their parents at the 10 a.m. service to receive Holy Communion. Infants and toddlers are invited to stay in the nursery room with our staff every Sunday during the 10 a.m. service.
The curriculum we use here at All Saints' for the young children is Weaving God's Promises. Weaving God's Promises is a Christian education program for children from age 4 (preschool) up to ages 11-12 (5th-6th grades). The curriculum is titled Weaving God's Promises after our process of faith formation in which we learn how God's promises of salvation are inextricably woven into our lives.
The goal is to teach children the way of Christ, not only in the church but also in the world, and to give them a solid preparation for entry into the youth program, which in turn will prepare them for Christain adulthood.
Through this church school curriculum, we hope to foster the
spiritual formation and growth of our children in Christ’s love and
mercy, to teach the spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation, and to
send our children out into the world as Christ’s ambassadors.
