Church School

Our Church School program serves a vital need in our Congregation. Our children are welcomed to attend classes at the age of 18 months – and are encouraged to attend until they graduate from high school. Our primary objective is to share the tenets of our Serbian Orthodox faith with our children as they grow.

In their formative years, they are taught Bible stories and begin their lasting relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ.

In their middle years, they are taught prayers and begin their lifelong commitments to the Sacraments of Confession and Communion.

In their maturing years, they are challenged to embrace our Orthodox Faith in their daily lives. Our children learn to pray together, grow in our Serbian Orthodox Faith together and attend Church services together. Our field trips are designed to allow our children to explore Orthodoxy together.

As each child grows in his or her relationship with Jesus Christ, he and she are taught that our Church community does activities together.  We are truly united by Jesus Christ. Our goal is that today's  children will be tomorrow's Church leaders and will eventually be listed among the Saints in Heaven reunited with our Savior Jesus Christ.

On Saturday, May 13th 2017 our Sunday School children along with their parents and Father Dane took a trip to San Francisco to visit the relics of Saint John Maximovitch. We left our church in Fair Oaks at about 8:00 in the morning and first visited the church of Saint Tikhon where St. John lived and had an orphanage for children from Shanghai, China. We were told about the history of St. John and saw the room he lived in. Our host was Father James from the Russian Orthodox diocese. We then drove to the Holy Virgin Cathedral where we prayed and learned more about the life of St. John. We were able to view the relics of this great saint and leave prayer messages for our loved ones. After leaving the church we went to have a picnic lunch at the beach. Thank you to our parent helpers for helping to prepare sandwiches and hot dogs. We arrived back at our church Saturday evening tired, but happy we were able to spend time together and learn more about our Orthodox faith.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want to thank all of the parents that will be taking the time to have their children participate.  If you have any questions or concerns please ask, as there may be others that have the same question as you.  I know that we will make lasting friendships for these kids.
