sunday school children (PK - Gr 5)
PRESCHOOL - KINDERGARTEN
During the school year, following opening music, community-building, and prayers, preschool and kindergarteners grow in faith; in relationship with one another; and explore key Bible stories together with the age-appropriate Spark curriculum.
GRADES 1 - 3
During the school year, following opening music, community-building, and prayers, elementary kids in grades 1 - 3 watch a short animated video and experience the Holy Moly curriculum to ignite their biblical imaginations.
GRADES 4 - 5
During the school year, following opening music, community-building, and prayers, grade 4 - 5 youth engage in God's big story with the Connect curriculum, and new ways of being God's YES in the world. ECLC's upper elementary youth focus on a weekly theme by watching a witty video, exploring biblical text, and creating projects ranging from games to art and more.
Throughout the school year and summer kids create art that tells the gospel story in new, sometimes surprising ways; lead the congregation in interactive worship; and experience different ways to pray. Kids and youth serve regularly as acolytes and lectors.
Sunday School children experience first-hand what a difference one person can make when we work together, making weekly contributions toward a cause that makes sense to them, as participants in giving.
Faith Milestones are a time for us to be intentional about the different ages, stages, and transitions of life, blessing children in worship and encouraging families and the congregation in the promises made at baptism.
During the summer, we host a weekly gathering of parents and children for singing, stories, and snacks between worship services on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. Community events appropriate for all ages, and summer camps are also planned.
