For Children and Youth
Sunday Morning Children's Schedule
Church School classesbegin on September 25th at 10 a.m. in the 2nd floor Education Wing classrooms.
Godly Play (preschool - 1st grade)
Godly Play is a Montessori-based way of Christian formation. We play with the language of God and of God’s people – sacred stories, parables, liturgical action and silence. Through this powerful language, our own wondering together, and through the community of children gathered to play, we receive the deepest invitation of all – an invitation to come and play with God.
Church School: Holy Moly (grades 2, 3, 4)
Holy Moly is a 2-year Sunday school curriculum for children using animated videos of Bible stories from the Old Testament & New Testament.
Upper Church School: Spark Activate Faith (grades 5 & 6)
This is the third year we are using this curriculum. Over a two year cycle the children will be working with 80 key Old Testament stories in the fall and the New Testament stories in the winter and spring. They will begin to understand the structure of the Bible and be able to navigate through it to find the stories they already know or find the new ones that they want to explore. They will begin to interpret the stories and discover ways to apply the text to their own lives.
Youth Group (7th grade & up)
Youth group meets every other Sunday at 9 a.m. in the Youth Lounge. The program is meant for those in 7th grade and older. We will focus on how teens are called to do Christ's work here in Monmouth County and beyond. Service projects will be an integral part of our fellowship.
On Wednesday evening, April 13, 2016, Bishop Stokes will come to Christ Church to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation. The following concerns preparing our 7th through 12th grade age youth for this moment in their journey of faith. Read on.
