Children's Christian Education
Sunday School at St. James coordinates with the 10:00 am service. Children should join the congregationfor the beginning of the service. During the Hymn of Praise, teacher and students leave for SundaySchool. The children return to church at The Peace so that all may join together for Holy Communion.
The program we use is Godly Play, created by Jerome Berryman and based on his interpretation ofMontessori-based religious education. The children have enjoyed the lessons and hands-on manipulativeitems that go along with each lesson. The Godly Play Lessons are an imaginative approach that supports,challenges, nourishes and guides their spiritual quest. This program is most appropriate for childrenages 3-9, though older children are also welcome.
