Sunday School at St. Bede’s

Sunday School has been cancelled due to COVID-19 until further notice.  We tentatively plan to resume classes after Homecoming Sunday in September 2021.

All are welcome at St. Bede’s Church School! We offer Sunday classes from September 24 through June for children 4 – 18 years old. Classes are concurrent with our 10 AM service and the curriculum parallels the teachings of the adult service. Our teachers work with our children to develop strong bonds spiritually with each other, with our community, and with God. The curriculum is lectionary-based and called Living the Good News. Because Church School focuses on the same cycle of weekly readings used in our worship services, it encourages a multi-age, “Whole community” approach. Through the Living the Good News curriculum children delve into their Christian education with a variety of learning media, including music, visual and applied arts, story-telling, drama, and movement.

Our dedicated nursery worker, Rose Marie has returned and will be working with the church school at least two Sundays per month. We will also schedule ourselves as we did last year:
1)  A children’s sermon one Sunday a month (usually the second Sunday);
2) One Sunday with a crafts/cooking leader; and
3) Church School classes the other Sundays of the month  (two or three).

Sunday School pauses on Easter Sunday so families can worship together in Church, and for the month of December so our children can learn (or re-learn) the Christmas Story and put together the Christmas Pageant. Please join us each Christmas Eve at 4:30 PM as the Kids of Bede perform the best story ever.

With the dedication of our teachers and the help of parents and other church members, the St. Bede’s Church School flourishes.

If you have any questions about our program or ways to be involved, please feel free to contact the church.
May the Lord bless our church school year.
