Sunday School

Engage, Explore, Express

At Saint James, Sunday School is a place where children aged 3 to 12, can come to know the love of Jesus Christ and the importance of God’s word in their lives.  Following the Cross Explorations curriculum from Concordia Publishing House, we welcome kids and get them excited about learning God’s Word through an introduction to the Bible using stories, crafts, music, drama, science, games and worship.   Their time with us is divided into three areas, Engage, Explore and Express.

Engage – All children come together for the opening which includes singing and preparation for the day’s lesson.

Explore – Children are divided into smaller age groups to learn and discuss the day’s lesson.

Express – Children rotate in their smaller groups or come together in a large group for activities based upon the day’s lesson.

We have dedicated teaching staff along with “guest” teachers from the congregation who are passionate about a topic and enjoy sharing their love of God with the students.

We even invite parents to join kids for the Engage opening before they begin their own adult Bible study.  Plus, the Explore More Cards help parents keep the Bible lessons going throughout the whole week! With great discussion topics and ideas for activities, the whole family can learn about God’s Word together.
