Welcome to St. Paul’s, Ivy and our ministry of Christian education and formation for all ages. We believe that Christian education and formation are lifelong journies that enable us to deepen both our knowledge of the Christian faith and our life of faith. In order to facilitate this lifelong process, we are committed to offering engaging and innovative classes taught by caring, experienced teachers. We believe that Christian education enriches our worship of God, which is the foundation on which our church life rests.
The Adult Forum meets Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall. The schedule is posted on the website and in the church bulletin.
We have interesting classes planned for our children as well. These take place on Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. during the school year throughout our facilities. The nature of each age group’s plan is listed below:
Up through age 3: Nursery, located on our lower level
Age 4-Kindergarten: “Godly Play,” in the Godly Play room, lower level
Grades 1-5: “Spirit Movers,” our rotation workshop
Grades 6-8: Rite 13 class, meeting on the lower level
Grades 9-12: SPISH meeting upstairs in Kirklea
We hope that these programs will engage our children and give them a solid foundation for their faith journeys. Many thanks to those of you who are already involved in these programs and to those of you who soon will be helping (you just don’t know it yet!).
