St. Matthews is proud of our strong and vibrant Sunday School. We offer classes for children from age 3 through 8.
Children sit with their families in the sanctuary until after a special message given to them by one of the pastors, about 15 minutes into the service. They proceed to the fresh and repurposed children's worship space below the sanctuary. This worship time begins with music, offering, and a time for prayer. Students then go to classrooms adjacent for lessons, Bible stories, and crafts tailored by age group and assisted by volunteer teachers and youth. Confirmation aged children go with the pastor to their classroom. Sunday School runs until 11 am at which time parents can pick up their children from their class. Children may briefly return to worship for communion. Classes run from September through to the beginning of June.
Ages 3 through grade 6 follow the Spark Curriculum. Students in grades 7 and 8 meet for confirmation class on Sunday mornings – more information available here. More information on our youth program is available here.
We are excited to plan and present pageants for Christmas and Palm Sunday. We also host a Mother's Day Tea in May.
Looking for something for children under age 3 on Sunday mornings? Information on our nursery is available here.
We are pleased to have an enthusiastic group of volunteer Sunday School teachers. In accordance with our Safe Church Policy, all teachers are approved by our pastor and have undergone background checks.
