@StMatts – for youth and kids
St. Matthews is excited by our strong and vibrant Sunday school. We offer classes for children from ages 3 through Grade 8.
Sunday School begins following the children's message in church (about 15 minutes into the service) with a gathering time in the Scout Hall with music, offering. Students then divide into 2 classes by age group. Sunday school runs until 11 am at which time parents can pick up their children from class. Older classes often briefly return to worship for communion. Classes run from September through to the beginning of June.
Ages 3 through grade 6 follow a curriculum purchased from Sperlings or Augsburg Press church supply. Students in grade 7 and 8 meet for confirmation class on Sunday mornings - more information available here. More information on our youth program is available here.
The highlight of our year is our annual Christmas pageant. in 2016, our children and youth presented "Old Star," a play about the story of Jesus' birth from the perspective of the stars above. In 2017, the children from Trinity United joined us allowing for a more ambitious script.
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. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
