Sunday School and Playgroup
Sunday School and the Playgroup meet from 10:15 am to 11:00 am, following the 9:30 am Early Church service.
At St. Ann’s Sunday School, K-6 children enjoy Bible stories and creative projects that are part of the journey toward faith. Mo. Kate Salisbury creates a lively curriculum that includes reading, praying, singing, and hand-on projects. The 2019 spring semester is rich in the arts. We’ll explore and chart a giant map, learn the art of puppetry, and work alongside parishioner and artist Ben Cowan as he creates a rainbow hued installation in the Sanctuary. Topics leap from the adventures of St. Paul to baptism and the love of God. In Lent, we’ll focus on Noah and the Ark from a number of angles while creating puppets and masks for our Palm Sunday procession. Sunday School moves upstairs to the Community Room this semester so we can spread out and create. Playgroup will now meet downstairs in the Parish Hall, where parents may also participate in series for adults. See the Spring 2010 curriculum is available here.
The Sunday Playgroup for newborn-Pre-K, meets at the same time as Sunday School and is led by led by parent Tasha Richards. The Community Room is transformed into a playroom where young 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!
