Since we’ll be breaking ground very soon on our new Parish Event Center, and we’ll be under construction all year, our Church School theme for this year is “God the Builder.” This theme reminds us that even though we work hard to build things, grow, and move forward, “the builder of all things is God!” (Hebrews 3:4). This will be a busy year for our Church School with special activities each month. The blessing of teachers and children will take place on September 17th, the first day of classes. We will hear our students sing the first part of the Divine Liturgy on our Parish Feastday (October 29th.) Regular Youth Choir practices will take place in October and November in preparation for the Christmas Pageant in December. The “Gallery Walk” Open House will take place during Coffee Hour in January, “Bring a Friend to Church Sunday” in February, the St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival in March, the Great and Holy Friday Youth Retreat and Godparent-Godchild Sunday in April. We’ll introduce our volunteer staff next month, but in the meantime, please keep our Church School program: students, teachers, aides, and directors in your prayers.

Families worship together. This is critical to true Christian Education. You are giving your children a great blessing by allowing them to learn to participate in the community of Faith in the Divine Liturgy.
10:15 “On-Time” ticket distribution ends (Some classes have a small “on-time” reward program)
Students will be ushered for Holy Communion after the Choir
Students will exit at rear of Church, then proceed to their classes.
12:00-12:15 Class dismissed.
(Parents are asked to wait until class has been dismissed before calling for children.) Occasionally a student needs to be released prior to dismissal. To avoid lesson disruption, he or she should come to class with a parent note indicating the time and reason for early release.
