NEW FOR THE 2020-2021 CHURCH SCHOOL YEAR!

 

ORTHODOX JOURNEYS CHURCH SCHOOL

 

Christ the Savior-Holy Spirit is pleased to announce our adoption of the new Orthodox Journeys Church School Curriculum and Study Guide Program.

 

This highly developed and professionally implemented educational resource provides outstanding lessons taken from the Scriptures and other sources of Holy Tradition for each Sunday of the year and all the Great Feasts (and many lesser feasts and saints' days), complete with guides and handouts for teachers and parents to share with their students and children, as well as study guides tailored to student age categories from grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.

 

Already posted are lessons, handouts, and study guides for the first ferw Sundays and Feasts of the Church Year. Additional lessons and materials will be posted in penty of time each week for teachers and parents to review and prepare their lessons.

 

Best of all, the distribution of these materials by PDF downloads enables us to adapt it to the gradual reopening of our Church School (following the Covid lockdown), as well as meet the needs of parents who are homeschooling. You can learn more about Orthodox Journeys and see some sample lesson plans and study guides on their website.

 

Because these materials are copyrighted by Orthodox Journeys, we are providing them on a special password-protected page for our parishioners.

 

Please contact Fr Steven to learn more about our parish life and Christian Education, and our Church School opportunities for our families. We hope you can "come and see" us very soon!

This slide show provides a glance at our Church School, with some photos from a decade or so ago, and many current images. One consistent element is the lively engagement and joy which is readily apparent, across all age groups.

Orthodox Christian education and formation for Preschool through 12th grade.



Dear Parents,
 
The Church School year of 2019-2020 will begin on Sunday, September 15. Open registration takes place on Sundays in August after Liturgy in the church hall. Please be sure to register your child. 
 
I am emphasizing commitment this year, and here is where your sense of commitment as parents will be revealed, as well as challenged.  The Divine Liturgy and the Church School must be your true priority every Lord’s Day.  Consistency is essential.  Your teachers are prepared, and their desire is to teach your child(ren) as effectively as possible. And that can only happen if the students are in their respective classes on a weekly basis.
 
So, please prepare yourself and your children to enjoy a fruitful Church School year here in our parish!
 
In Christ,
 
Fr. Steven

New to the parish? Late registration needed? —  No Problem! Please contact us! We look forward to welcoming you and your children!
