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 at St. Ann’s is fun. We use classic Bible stories and creative, hands-on projects as springboards for the contemplation of God.
This Homecoming, September 13, Sunday School has a sweet start. Drawing on the Bee Space exhibition of works by visiting glass artist Emma Stein on view in the sanctuary, we will dive into the inspiring world of bees and the honeycomb.
In the following weeks, as we savor psalms and the creation texts of Genesis, we will consider the created order and our role within it. We will play with light, learn about fantastic creatures, touch on environmental stewardship and hold a fundraiser for the ASPCA.
In October, we begin a unit on ethics that will find us shooting a bow and arrow, carving clay tablets and creating rainbows. By Thanksgiving, kids will know new and wonderful things about Adam, Eve, Noah, Moses, Jesus, Paul and Francis. After lessons on gratitude and prayer around Thanksgiving, the season of Advent will build upon the Christmas story.
You can see the entire fall schedule of fun lessons Mother Kate has planned here.
Please join us any Sunday. Newcomers are always welcome! If you have any questions about the program, please contact Mother Kate at email@example.com or telephone the office at 718-875-6960.
