Saint Alban’s Adult Education Fall/Winter
Saint Alban’s resumes our regular adult education Bible study sessions between services in the sanctuary every Sunday beginning September 13. Please click the link below to see what we have coming up for this year!
Children's Christian Education
The Children’s Christian Education, under the direction of Diane Kaufmann and her team work with the children each Sunday morning at 9:30 AM in the church hall from September through May. Classes include studies for children from pre-school through college to build on a Christian foundation that each student can rely on to help them through their time away from home as young adults.
In addition to the Sunday classes, Diane and her team facilitate a yearly week of Vacation Bible School (VBS). Children from throughout the community come to learn in a fun and interactive environment. Stay tuned for next year’s dates!
Sunday School Classes Resume
Children ages five through eighteen will return to Sunday Classes on Sunday, September 13th, when teens and elementary children will gather together to explore “the armor of God” through Bible stories, crafts, science experiments and drama.
The fall curriculum, September through November, will focus on the following foundational Bible stories:
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Fiery Furnace
David and Goliath
Mary’s Journey to Bethlehem
Jesus Walks on Water
Midnight Praise with Paul and Silas
Students will study virtues exemplified on the “armor of God” as they enjoy these special stories. Truth, justice, peace, faith, and salvation are seen in light of Ephesisans 6:11-18, with emphasis on the banner verse, “Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power.”
Weather permitting, classes will be held outside, with appropriate social distancing and other safeguards suggested by the CDC during the coronavirus pandemic.
We would love to welcome your family to these exciting classes. For more information, please call the church office (724-325-2727) and leave a message for Diane Kaufmann, Sunday School director.
Christian Education for Children at St. Alban’s
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Struggling to meet the needs of the children of St. Alban’s in an increasingly secular society, the goal of our Sunday School remains focused on helping all students, from pre-school through college, grow in faith and love of God’s Word. Classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM.
Sunday morning lessons normally consist of a children’s chapel service, video supplements, a morning snack, games, and crafts.
While education is the primary focus of the Sunday School, we also strive to provide opportunities for service and fellowship. Once a month the children of the Sunday School gather for a service project. This year the children enjoyed packing College Care Packages, making stationery sets for veterans at the Fisher House, sponsoring the Operation Christmas Child shoebox, organizing Project Hope, gathering warm outerwear and toiletries for the Blackburn Women’s Shelter, filling pretzel treat bags for residents at a local senior citizens facility, collecting donations for Heifer International, and stuffing Birthday Bags for Loaves and Fishes. The children’s offering each Sunday is used to support two children through Compassion International: Josiane from Brazil and Gurmesa from Ethiopia.
Whether gathering for fellowship during the annual inter-generational ice cream social, Share-Your-Heart Sunday, making pretzels during Lent, searching for eggs during the Love Sunday Easter Egg Hunt, competing in the Sunday School’s Who’s First quiz shows, enjoying the Recognition Sunday picnic, playing with friends at VBS, or celebrating Christmas with a birthday party for baby Jesus, the children of St. Alban’s experience fun and fellowship as an important part of the Sunday school program.
The staff encourages visitors and welcomes all parents who wish to bring their children to Sunday School for Christian education, fun, and fellowship! Please call the church office for more information.
