Sunday School Program
Theohare Kapellakis & Ranya Karatzoulidis, Program Co-Directors
- The children attend the Service arriving at 10:10am and seated at the first left pews. After Holly Communion they are directed to the Υouth Center/School building were the Sunday School classes take place.
- Each class will be assigned a prayer which they will practice. It is our goal that the students learn this prayer (older classes may be assigned more than one) by heart. One day a week is not enough time to cultivate a child’s prayer life. We ask that you pray with your child each morning and evening and incorporate their class prayer into your prayer rule.
- Please instruct your child PRIOR to dropping them off to Sunday School as to whether or not they should receive Holy Communion.
- Parents are requested to pick up their child from the Youth Center/School building after the completion of the Services
The mission of our Sunday School program is based on an approach which prepares the students with the principles of the Orthodox Faith, encouraging them to grow in God’s service. Our program builds a solid foundation for the children of our community through exemplary lessons in the teaching and the Worship Practices of the Greek Orthodox Christian Faith, using the fundamental tools of:
|Worship||participating in community worship and private prayer|
|Community||sharing in the total life of the church|
|Discipleship||learning how to follow Jesus Christ and His Gospel Message|
|Service||serving the needs of others in and around the community|
|Witness||fulfilling Christ’s mission in the world|
Through these intertwined tools we hope each child has received not only the communication of Christian truth called Orthodoxia, but also a formation of Christian Character by living a lifestyle representative of our Christian Faith called Orthopraxia.

The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
