The service is kid-friendly and just a half-hour long, including Holy Eucharist. The service makes it easier for us to welcome people of all ages to become part of our community. Members and friends of St. Ann’s can help support this effort to grow by spreading the word among the earlier risers you know!
Sunday School and Playgroup
St. Ann’s Sunday School classes include children ages 5-12 (K-6). Sunday School takes place from 10:15 am-11:00 am, welcoming children and youth, ages 4 through 12 who attend Early Church with their families. Everyone has fun at St. Ann’s. We use classic Bible stories and creative, hands-on projects as springboards for the contemplation of God. During Sunday School, parents are free to attend coffee hour, participate in Sandwich Sundays or join other activities offered seasonally by the church.
This year, we have introduced a new Sunday Playgroup for infants and toddlers. Led by parents Tasha Richards and Elise Roecker, Sunday Playgroup (newborn-Pre-K) meets at the same time as Sunday School. The Community Room is transformed into a playroom where children and their parents are invited to enjoy stories, songs and projects just for them. The format includes open play and a weekly reading and craft project that focuses on the Sunday School theme in an age-appropriate way. Once a month St. Ann’s Early Church musician, Laura Moore, joins the group to lead a sing-a-long!
Led by parent Josh Williams, our Children’s Choir meets once a month in lieu of regular Sunday School class. Children learn a mix of music, including classic hymns. Everyone has fun getting to know one another better while producing beautiful music! Hear the choir rehearsing “Silent Night” for a recent Christmas Pageant.
Interfaith Youth Service Projects
Initiated by St. Ann’s so that our youngest members have something to grow into, and in cooperation with the Brooklyn Heights Interfaith Clergy Association, this program invites 6th-12th graders of different faiths to perform community service together on a regular basis. A different neighborhood church, synagogue or mosque hosts every month, typically on the third Sunday of the month, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Friends are welcome.
Please join us any Sunday. Newcomers are always welcome! If you have any questions about the program, please contact Mo. Kate Salisbury or telephone the office at 718-875-6960.
