The Sunday School Mission
The purpose of St. John Sunday School program is to facilitate an opportunity for children to learn the fundamentals of Orthodox Christianity as taught by the Fathers of the Orthodox Church. Additionally, St. John Sunday School provides an opportunity for children to learn their Armenian culture through song, art, and creative projects.
Our Sunday School is both well-rounded and diversified consisting of religion classes, music, and special projects. Each month, students receive a spiritual message in the sanctuary. Our Sunday School program instills a greater understanding of faith which is relevant and applicable to our children's lives, and introducing them to a wide range of spiritually and culturally important topics.
The current curriculum is provided by the Christian Education Council under the direction of the Western Diocese and our teachers incorporate additional material.
Sunday School begins at 11:00 am and concludes between 12:15 and 12:30 pm. Children must be checked in by their parent or guardian when they arrive and checked out of their class.
