“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.” [Matthew 18:6]
Christian education is an important element in raising our children to build strong foundations in life based on the Holy Scriptures. As the saying goes, “Our kids are our future”.
Sunday School gives children the opportunity to focus on Bible stories and principles for Christian living in fellowship with other children in the blessed environment of the Armenian Apostolic Church.
Each week we focus on a different story from the Bible. Story-telling and hands-on activities are programmed to ensure children learn in a fun and interactive setting. Facilitators are sensitive to the language needs of children and conduct sessions bilingually.
Sessions are held every Sunday morning from 10:45 am. Regular attendance is highly appreciated and encouraged. Children are also warmly invited to join in Sunday School for a fun learning experience while parents partake in the Divine Liturgy.
All children between the age of 4-12 are most certainly welcome to attend our Sunday school.
