Kids’ Sunday Morning Programming at St. George!

By | Children's Ministries | No Comments

It’s great to be a kid at St. George on Sunday mornings! We have a fun-filled Fall planned….and it all kicked off this past Sunday, Sept. 8! We have programming for all ages! Details can be found below for Fun & the Son, our all-age Sunday school, as well as our Children’s & Kids for Christ Chapels! We look forward to another fun year with your kids!

Fun & the Son: Meets every Sunday…except on holiday weekends…at 9:45 am in the Youth & Family Room

Who says you have to wait for summer to go to Vacation Bible School?! You can have VBS on Sundays throughout the year. Join us this Sunday, Sept. 8, as we kick off our fall series of Fun & the Son: GAME ON; our VBS inspired Sunday School for kids in kinder-5th grade! During Fun & the Son: GAME ON kids engage in interactive bible lessons, play fun games and make snacks that relate to the bible theme of the day!
This fall, we’re going on an epic African adventure with ROAR, where the whole herd will be engaged! At ROAR, kids will explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life! So lace up those shoes, get in the spirit and join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM in the Youth & Family Room. We look forward to seeing you there! Breakfast is provided. While the kids are participating, we welcome parents to join in “The Wired Word” group study during this time in the Parish Hall!

 

Children’s Chapel (PreK-2nd grade) & Kids For Christ Chapel (3rd-5th grade): Meets every Sunday during the 10:45 am worship service

All our chapel lessons engage the kids in scripture through fun & action-packed activities! Over the next couple of weeks in September, we will be completing the Back to School series of lessons: Glorifying God at School. Last Sunday was our first lesson, Glorifying God on the playground! This Sunday, we learn how to Glorify God in the Cafeteria; kids will learn the importance of focusing on Christ and on the good things of the Spirit!

First Communion

We will be holding First Communion classes beginning January 21 during the 10:45 AM worship service! All baptized students in the 1st-5th grades are invited to attend this 5 week class series! The curriculum we will be using is modeled on the Eucharist format: We Gather (Lesson 1), We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God (Lesson 2), We Offer our Gifts (Lesson 3), We Celebrate (Lesson 4) and We are Sent Out (Lesson 5). Because children learn with all their senses, activities and instruction will be included that engage them throughout each lesson.

The classes will be led by Happy Wilson in Ms. Urbanowski’s room (Middle School building next door to the Sacred Studies room) during the 10:45 AM worship service on the following Sundays: Jan. 21Jan. 28Feb. 4Feb. 18Feb. 25. Fr. Ram will lead lesson 4, We Celebrate, on Feb. 18 after the 10:45 AM worship service. The First Communion service will take place on Sunday, May 20th.

The First Communion class schedule is as follows:
January 21: We Gather
January 28: We Hear and We Respond to the Word of God
February 4: We Offer our Gifts
February 18: (class will be held after 10:45 service): We Celebrate
February 25: We are Sent Out
May 20th: First Communion

You may register your child for the First Communion classes by contacting Happy Wilson at hwilson@saintgeorgechurch.org.

We will be electing 2 people of three year terms and one for a special one year term. We also need one alternate delegate.

Delegates the first alternate will have their registration fee (which includes Friday luncheon and Friday evening council banquet) paid by the Church. All other expenses will be borne by delegates/alternates.

At St. George the Senior Warden is the head of the delegation. The Senior Warden for 2018 is Susan Alwais. Please contact her if you have any questions about serving at Diocesan Council – the family reunion of the Diocese of West Texas.
