Faith Formation Classes
6:30pm to 7:30pm
through Mid-May. We will host via Zoom this year.
We are excited to share God's Word and the teaching of Jesus with you and your family. Sunday School is offered to students ages 3-12th grade. 3 year olds need to be potty trained or accompanied by a parent.
Faith Formation Classes will be virtual this Fall. We will be offering a weekly video posted on Mondays on our website, that retells/explains the Bible story for the week. There are also take-home curriculum packets that go along with that story for your children to complete.
On Wednesdays, from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm, we will have a Zoom class based on the lesson. All ages will begin together for the class, and then break out into age groups. Students are welcome to participate in any and all of these activities. The zoom information will be sent via email to your household. Packets can be picked up on Sunday, Sept 13th from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm.
Please contact our Faith Formation Director, Karolin Brechbill, for more information or to make individual arrangements for pick-up of curriculum (firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-256-8738).
