Growing in Faith, Hope, and Love


Church School Registration Form

We have an awesome year planned! Our focus during the 2017-2018 Church School Year is SCRIPTURE. We will be diving into the Bible to learn about God’s word.

At the end of the year the children will have a special presentation to showcase all they have learned throughout the year.

Each class will have their own theme, as seen below.

I look forward to another exciting year!

Yours in Christ’s service,
Matushka Holly Parnell, Director of Religious Education

Beholding the Glory

Starting next Wednesday (July 25th), we will begin a new Bible study series on the Gospel of John, using a book entitled:
"The Gospel of John: Beholding the Glory," by Fr. Lawrence Farley

Each week we'll celebrate an abbreviated daily Vespers (6:00pm-6:25pm) followed by our Bible Study on the Gospel of John (6:30pm-7:20pm).
