Christian Education

Growing in Christ; Serving His People

Our Approach to Learning

 

We believe in making “God is Everywhere” real for our young people and helping them see the many ways Christians share the Fruit of the Spirit through Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.

 

Here are some examples of our Kids’ Corner action-packed activities:

  • Making paper and writing with bamboo reeds as Paul did.

  • Discussions about Lent and burying the Alleluias!

 

On Sunday mornings, families are greeted by Jane (Ms. Jane) Kilpatrick and Aiyana (Miss Flowers) Flowers. Ms. Jane, Director of Christian Education and Family Ministries, has been with St. Paul’s since 2015. She has a Masters in Christian Education and has served in Episcopal churches for over 20 years. Miss Flowers, Nursery Coordinator, has been with St. Paul’s since 2016. She has a Masters in Literacy from Winthrop University and is a third-grade teacher.

Sunday Morning Bible Study with Father Ed+

 

We meet at 9:15 between services in the parish hall. We focus on discussion of the Gospel reading for the following Sunday.

 

Tuesday Morning Adult Book Study

We meet Tuesdays in the Kids’ Corner Room at 11:00 am. Our book for Lent is "The Hope of Glory: Reflections on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cross," by Jon Meacham. We’ve already had some great discussions! You don’t have to read the book to join us. 

Children's Formation

 

Kids' Corner (K-4th grade) begins at 10:15am each Sunday. Child-centered adults engage children in learning biblical concepts in age-appropriate ways. The curriculum, Whole People of God, is lectionary-based so children and adults learn about the same scriptures each week.  Children join their families during The Peace, before communion.  

Volunteers are ordinary people with extraordinary hearts. They offer the gift of their time to teach, to listen, to help, to inspire, to build, to grow, to learn. They expect no pay, yet the value of their work knows no limit. They’ve known the unexpected joy of a simple hug. They’ve planted tiny seeds of love in countless lives. Volunteers are ordinary people who reach out and take a hand and together make a difference that lasts a lifetime.
