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.
The Fall season at Sunday School had a sweet start. Drawing on the Bee Space exhibition of works by visiting glass artist Emma Stein on view in the sanctuary, we dove into the inspiring world of bees and the honeycomb.
In the following weeks, we savored psalms and the creation texts of Genesis and considered the created order and our role within it. We played with light, learned about fantastic creatures, touched on environmental stewardship and held a fundraiser for the ASPCA.
In October, we began a unit on ethics that will found us shooting a bow and arrow, carving clay tablets and creating rainbows. By Thanksgiving, kids knew 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.
