Overview

All preschool and elementary school children are invited to join us in The Vineyard, St. Paul’s Sunday School, where kids grow strong in faith as they explore God’s Word through hands-on activities.

St. Paul’s Sunday School program for children age 3 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.

Sunday School  -  2013/2014

Test of Faith

The theme for our Sunday School lessons this year is “Test of Faith”! Throughout the scriptures, people faced  many challenges to their faith.
 
The story of Adam and Eve reflects our human struggle to try to withstand the
temptations that separate us from God and one another.  And we learn that God is always faithful to us, even when we do not live a perfect life.  Daniel faced some serious challenges to his faith. But as he met each challenge, he prayed and called on God to help him.  Jesus’ disciple, Thomas, was labeled “doubting” at his greatest  test of faith. Thomas was willing to go to Jerusalem and die with his Lord, but he couldn’t believe the unbelievable! These are just three of the stories we will explore this year, all reflecting that faith is not always easy but it is the first thing and last thing we call on to get us through the tough times.
 
What makes all this exploring and learning fun is that we get to do it together!
