2020 Church School Program

All Saints’ Church School

ASC KIDS CLUB, SUNDAY SCHOOL & FAMILY WORSHIP

All Saints’ Church School’s goal is to offer a safe, supportive, and loving environment for all children to practice our faith, wonder about the kingdom of God, and care for our neighbors as ourselves and experience the grace of God’s love together. 

We believe these three online components will help us as a community to reach this goal.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

The Discover Class (Age 3 – 5) — taught by  Meghan Wynne and Ginny Bevington. Class time Sunday at 9am. This class is a “parent & me” class and as such, children of all ages are welcome. Class is 20-25 minutes. Zoom links will be in the Realm group and emailed every Sunday.

We seek to create a warm and loving environment in order to  make every child’s first Sunday School experience a success!

The Explore Class (K-2nd grade)– taught by Skyla Garrigan and Aly Moore. Class time Sunday at 9:30am. This class will last 30 minutes. Zoom links will be in the Realm group and emailed every Sunday.

For our school-aged youngsters  we offer a fun, high-energy class full of sing-a-longs, felt stories from the Bible, prayer and crafts. We seek to explore God’s love in our lives.

The Wonder Class (3rd & 4th Grade) — taught by  Laura Barry, Debbie Collins, Katelyn Conklin, Jen Dowd, Rose Felzani, Larisa Ducharme, Mirna Cunha and Katie LaRochelle. Class time 9:30am on Sundays. Zoom links will be in the Realm group and emailed every Sunday.

While we are online we will be looking to translate the Godly Play curriculum into an engaging and wonder-filled experience.

Fall Planting and Daffodil Donations!

Fall Planting this Sunday, October 11th!

imagesAll Lower Church School classes will be participating in our Fall Planting event this Sunday, October 11.  This will be a morning full of gardening fun for our students!

Parents, please drop your children off in their regular Sunday  morning classroom.  After all children have arrived, the teachers will bring them to the Parish Hall where we will break into small groups for planting.  Please send your child with a hand trowel if possible, and please bring your child dressed for digging in the dirt!

We would greatly appreciate donations of daffodil bulbs! There is a basket in the Narthex to collect daffodil donations or you can drop them off directly in the Parish Hall Sunday morning.  Thank you for your help!

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with this event, please contact Debbie Collins.
