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.

Message from Zlatko regarding the practice schedule for St. Sava:

St. Sava practice this Friday at 6:30.  If you did not get a poem for your child, you can get it Friday.

We will be having St. Sava practice every Friday and Sunday until the 31st.  Friday practices will start at 6:30.  Friday the 22nd and Sunday the 24th we will be having the kids try on the costumes they will wear, so please make that practice.
 
Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th are mandatory practices.  If you miss these practices we will not be able to have your child in the program.  If you think you might not be able to make to these practices we need to talk this Sunday.
 
Each practice we will rehearse each child’s poem, the 3 songs that were handed out on Sunday, and the dances.
 
Also, we still need Kumovi for the event so please reply to the whole group if you are interested in having your child be a kum/kuma for the event.
 
I was very please with the number of children that got poems on Sunday and I think it will be a wonderful event.  Next year we need to start sooner, but we can’t change that for this year, so we will make the best of it.  If your kids can’t memorize the poem, not a problem.  We should have gotten these out earlier.  We don’t want this to be a stressful event for the kids, we want it to be fun for them and memorable for you and the Church.
 
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.
