Welcome Newcomers & Welcome Back Old Friends!

This year's Sunday School program runs September 8, 2019 - May 17, 2020

The Epiphany Parish Sunday School encourages faith development through instruction, worship and fellowship in a fun and age-appropriate way for preschool through middle school age children.  Childcare is also available for infants and toddlers through age 3 during our 10:00 am service.

 

Sunday School begins each Sunday morning at 9:45 am.

Our program year runs from September through May.

 

Epiphany Parish is a Safe Church.  All of our Sunday School teachers have background checks, receive safe church training before working with the children of our parish, and follow all safe church policies.  

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the religious formation of children that is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in an "atrium," a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials they use to help them absorb the most essential proclamations of the Christianfaith.

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a rich experience for children that gives them the opportunity to grow in love and knowledge of God through the Christian tradition.

Our pre-kindergarten & kindergarten children are instructed in The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.

The mission of Weaving God’s Promises is to teach children and youth how God’s promises of salvation are woven into our lives; teaching them the way of Christ, not only in the church but also in the world as Christ’s ambassadors; and fostering the spiritual formation and growth of our children and youth in Christ’s love and mercy and to teach the spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Our children in Grades 1-5 follow an Episcopal curriculum called "Weaving God's Promises"

Distance Learning provides an online opportunity for youngsters who cannot attend church to read a story, answer some questions, and e-mail answers to become eligible for a "badge". Each lesson completed will represent a different badge to be entered into a booklet. This is a fun learning offering for anyone interested in participating.

Distance Learning for Children in Grades 1-5

Students in grades 6 and up will be investigating where they "fit in" to our church family. There are so many tasks and ministries that church members can take part in. To name just a few - vestry member, selling pumpkins, counting money, altar guild, teaching, and more.

 

Students will be performing various services and learning about many of our church's ministries. For each service they perform and/or learning participation, there is an opportunity to earn a "circle award".  Students will enter awards into a "passport" booklet to track their progress. Journals will be used to record whether what they are investigating is a place where they feel they fit in at Epiphany. The first project they will work on is an outreach opportunity. Come on Sunday to learn more!

Our Youth in Grades 6-8 participate in the Passports Program

Epiphany Parish is one of the founding members of a new multi-church youth group for students in grades 6-9.  Youth events will take place weekly beginning October 6, 2019 at Epiphany Parish.  Epiphany Parish is partnering with South Walpole United Methodist Church, Union Congregational Church of Walpole, and United Church in Walpole to develop a Christian youth ministry program for the town of Walpole.

Our Mission: We reach out to Walpole area youth with the joy of the gospel, empowering them to grow in discipleship.

Our Vision: Through experiences of inclusive community, formative service, and authentic spiritual practice, youth lives are changed.
