Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs. Matthew 19:14
Welcome to Our Saviour's Sunday School, Jesus & Me (JAM), and Connect Programs. Our Saviour’s children’s education is open to children age 3 through grade 5. These programs are a place for children to connect with each other, but most importantly, to learn about who God is and his importance in their lives.
- Sunday school (for age 3 through grade 3) is available at 9:15 and 10:00 a.m., September through May
Wednesday JAM (for age 3 through grade 3) is available 5:00-6:00 and 7:15-8:15 p.m., September through May
- Connect Bible Study (for grade 4 and 5) is available on Sundays at 9:15 and 10:00 a.m., as well as 5:00-6:00 and 7:15-8:15 p.m. on Wednesdays, September through May
On Sundays, students may:
- attend class at 9:15 a.m. and worship with their families at either 8:30 or 10:00 a.m. (if at 8:30, kids are able to head to class after communion)
- attend class at 10:00 a.m., starting with their families in worship at 10:00 a.m., students will be dismissed to class after the Children’s sermon
Sundays, 9:15 and 10:00 a.m.
Sunday school is offered to help children begin to discover how they can be life-long disciples of Jesus Christ. The Spark curriculum connects readings from worship with Sunday school, following stories in the Revised Common Lectionary. Throughout the three-year cycle, each lesson comes from a Bible story in the Old Testament, the Gospels, or Acts, that kids will hear during worship.
Jesus & Me (JAM)
Wednesdays, 5:00 and 7:15 p.m.
Wednesday JAM uses a rotational model from Spark. The rotation model provides multiple workshop options for each Bible story. In this model, kids spend more than one week on a Bible story and visit a different workshop each week in order to experience that same story from different perspectives.
Connect Bible Study
Sundays, 9:15 and 10:00 a.m.; Wednesdays, 5:00 and 7:15 p.m.
Connect is a bridge program to link Sunday school to confirmation. It is a two-year program, spending one year in both the Old and New Testaments. Because the students are able to think more critically they will spend two years diving more deeply into the stories from Sunday school to solidify the concepts they learned.
