Christ Church Sunday School 2017-2018 Middle and High School Class Information
Middle and High School classes are held jointly to provide sufficient interaction between Sunday schoolers, which our numbers currently do not support for separate classes. There is the added advantage that the occasional absence of either teacher is no cause to cancel class. (In the event that neither of us can be present and we DO have to cancel, we will make every effort to inform you as soon as possible.)

Practicing charity, and service to God, the church, and to others

The major events of the Sunday School year can be found on the calendar provided to you. We will present more detailed plan updates with handouts and on the Parish website.
