Sunday School is Back!
Announcing an exciting program for Fall 2016
Starting Sunday, September 25, 10:15 – 11:00am
Sunday School welcomes children and youth, ages 4 through 12 who attend Early Church with their families. During Sunday School, parents are free to attend coffee hour, participate in Sandwich Sundays or join other activities offered seasonally by the church.
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.
What’s New for Fall 2016?
- There is a new Sunday School section, new choir and new confirmation class this year.
- St. Ann’s Pre-K/K group will be taught by Halley Potter Taylor, parishioner and author of the recent book, A Smarter Charter: Finding What Works for Charter Schools and Public Education. Children in 1st-5th grade will now have their own section, taught by Mother Kate.
- St. Ann’s new, resident seminarian, Matt Burdette, will lead a group for older youth, which can also serve as preparation for Confirmation in the Episcopal Church for those who choose.
- At least once a month, all the kids will all be together, either for Choir, Sandwich Sunday, or a Christmas pageant rehearsal. The fall syllabus is here. Take a look, and invite a friend.
Led by parents Josh Williams and John Bickerton, our new Children’s Choir will meet once a month, in lieu of regular Sunday School class. Children will learn a mix of Christmas and other holiday music, as well as classic hymns. We hope everyone will have fun getting to know one another better while producing beautiful music!
Resident seminarian Matthew Burdette, PhD Theology, will lead a group for Middle and High School students twice a month. This group can serve as preparation for Confirmation in the Episcopal Church for those who choose. St. Ann’s will host a diocesan-wide Confirmation Service on Saturday, May 6, 2017.
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 Mother Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the office at 718-875-6960.
