Learn and Grow

Children and Youth

Sunday School is offered each Sunday from 10am until the children join their families for Holy Communion. The program is designed to help children become more aware of God’s presence in their lives. The class uses a variety of methods including Godly Play (a Montessori approach), bible lessons, & prayer activities. Arts, crafts & games are woven throughout. On the last Sunday of the month we all worship together for the entire service. This teaches all of us about corporate worship and our faith community. Children are always welcome in worship if they choose not to attend class and our toddler room is always available for our youngest members.

This fall the curriculum will focus on  youth and child friendly versions of  The Way of Love Series.

Introducing The Way of Love with Bishop Michael Curry

Beginning in September we welcome all to journey with us in this opportunity to listen, reflect, and grow via the Bishop Michael Curry’s vision of “The Way of Love:  Practices for Jesus-Centered Life 

In my opinion this is one of the easiest and, at the same time, most profound ways that has been offered for us to walk with fellow Christians in education and spiritual growth. Here are the 4 simple steps:

Step 1) The week of August 25th please read Bishop Curry’s invitation https://www.episcopalchurch.org/way-of-love/invitation , watch the 4 minute introductory video then listen to two short podcasts https://www.episcopalchurch.org/getting-started-way-love , S0-E0 Introducing the Way of Love (1:05) and S1-E1 What is The Way of Love (19 minutes)

Step 2) Beginning the week of September 8th each week listen to and reflect on the Bishop’s podcasts, each is about 20 minutes long, as outlined in St. Clare’s Way of Love podcast schedule listed below

Step 3) Each Sunday after church we will have a “Pop Up” gathering to discuss the previous week’s episode. We will provide facilitation and reflection materials. You may join the gathering whenever you feel called, have time, want to listen – there is no wrong way in the Way of Love

Step 4) Live into the 7 part cycle of the Way of Love:  Pray –  Rest – Worship – Learn – Bless – Turn – Go

Yours in Christ,

Diane Lindstrand, Senior Warden
