Mission Statement

The mission of the Sts. Sophia, Faith, Hope, & Agape Sunday School is to educate and reinforce the teachings of the Church by incorporating into our lesson the daily Scripture readings, the sacraments of our Faith, concepts, and the understanding of the Church's liturgical year including Major Feasts. We aim to encourage children to live their faith by studying the Holy Bible and Orthodox Christian teachings; supporting the church by volunteering  their time, talents, and treasure as good stewards in fellowship, and developing close, lasting relationships and friendships through which they can support one another in their lifelong journey with Jesus Christ.

Guidelines

Divine  Liturgy begins 10:00am SHARP. We ask that Students and Teachers be on time and sit in the first three rows of the Church by the Choir.

High Schoolers can sit with their families if they prefer.

Nursery Class only will proceed to their classroom after the "children's" sermon and then return for Holy Communion.

All other grades will stay throughout the Divine Liturgy and then proceed to their class after Holy Communion. Sunday School classes last 30 minutes and will be dismissed afterwards into the Church Hall during coffee hour. We ask that parents do not roam the Sunday School hallway or interrupt the classes unless an emergency or prearranged with the teacher(s).
