SUNDAY CHURCH SCHOOL
Welcome to the Ascension of Our Lord Sunday Church School (SCS)! Sunday Church School provides the foundation for our children to learn about Orthodoxy and strengthen their love for Christ. Our program delivers spiritual and educational opportunities to children in Pre-K - 8th grade. (Pre-K must be 4 years old by 9/1/2023). The age-appropriate curriculum follows a scope and sequence that builds each year on the fundamentals of Orthodoxy, and is taught by a dedicated and passionate staff. Dynamic and interactive teaching tools are used to engage and inspire our youth so that their love and knowledge of Christ and the Church grows each year.
As our children embark on a new school year, Ascension is committed to offering a Sunday Church School program that establishes a firm foundation of faith and tradition and keeps Christ at the center of our children's hearts. We begin in Church at the start of Divine Liturgy at 9:30 a.m. and dismiss after Holy Communion for the class lesson. Class ends at 11:30 a.m. All of our classrooms (upper and lower level) are equipped with technology and classroom furnishings that support a transformative, collaborative and innovative learning environment. We are looking forward to another exciting and inspirational year with our children.
Sunday Church School begins for the 2023/2024 year on Sunday, September 10, 2023. We ask for God's blessings of health and spiritual fortitude as we embark on a new school year! Please contact SCS Director Katherine Schreiber at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or suggestions.
