Sunday School

We see and hear in Jesus’ witness something profound about our posture towards children. They have inherent dignity, and we, like Jesus, need to raise them up. Surely all of us need to take on the care of at least one child. Whether we are parents, godparents, aunts and uncles, teachers, neighbors, friends, advocates…in some way doing some thing in the raising up of at least one child, and for the love of God!”

St Mary's Youth Christian Education

The St. Mary parish family demonstrates their love for children and young adults by providing Christian education that assist parents in helping children to learn about and experience the love of Christ. Led by dedicated and faithful volunteers serving Christ and his Church by teaching and modeling the Christian faith to our children.  St. Mary's provides relevant, “teacher friendly” Christian curriculum for our Sunday School teachers and students.

  • Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd Grade - HeartShaper (Shaping Hearts with God’s Word)
    Engages students in Bible stories through multi-sensory learning, Bible skill-building activities, and focused life application.
    Through a chronological overview of the Bible, these programs are designed to help children become aware of God’s love and care for His children through Bible verses, stories, visual aids, and activities
  • 3rd through 5th Grade -  HeartShaper (Shaping Hearts with God’s Word)
    Discovering how to find the books and stories in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments.  We also learn about stories represented by the stained glass windows in the church.  Sometimes we also enjoy bible games such as Setters of Canaan, and Bible Apples to Apples.
  • Middle School (6-9)-  HeartShaper (Shaping Hearts with God’s Word)
    Each week we focus on the theme of the Sunday scripture readings.  We hope to help these young people develop their own belief system, and prepare to be active adults in the Christian community.

     All children and young adults are welcome.  There is a place for you and your children at St. Mary’s!
