SUNDAY SCHOOL

Members of St Basil’s believe that one of the biggest gift we could give to our children is bringing them up in faith of our lord Jesus Christ. We believe Sunday School is one of the key vehicles to achieve this and also to pass on our traditions, culture and goodwill. So St. Basil’s Church has started an active and ambitious Sunday school program.

The Sunday School program teaches our children and youth the Orthodox faith through teachings of the Bible, as well as materials obtained from the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Sunday School Association of North America. Our students and their families are encouraged to arrive to Divine Liturgy every Sunday promptly to worship and pray together as a family. Children are encouraged to sit together with their teachers in the front left side of the church. Sunday School classes begin after Holy Communion, and are approximately 30-45 minutes long. Students then join their parents during coffee hour after their class has concluded.

SUNDAY SCHOOL MISSION

In coordination with our Archdiocese we believe mission of our Sunday School program is to:

  • Develop an understanding of Bible to provide a strong foundation for Christian Living (build knowledge).
  • Help our children understand that God has a plan for each of them (individual study and analysis).
  • Lead our children to a personal commitment to follow Jesus (decision making).
  • Learn to worship our Lord through singing and praying and help them remain in that commitment (hold the faith and grow)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

We plan to achieve this mission by

  • Implementing a structured program for learning the Word of God.
  • Sharing our faith and help them to seek guidance from Bible.
  • Providing interactive environment to understand and experience God’s love and His call.
  • Educate our children the need for regular worship and offer exciting opportunities to be with children who keep the same Christian values. Introduce them to the faith and sacraments of the Church.
