Sunday School

Following Liturgy, the children head to their classrooms to learn about the Orthodox Church and its beautiful traditions. The children are learning about the Twelve Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church this year. However, we have several different curriculums available for Sunday School that we rotate. The children learn about other topics as well such as the Divine Liturgy, Saints of the Orthodox Church, Mysteries, Traditions and Vocations to name a few.

There are three grade levels available in our Sunday School Program.

~ Fisherman Class ~ Preschool - 1st Grade
Disciple Class ~ 2nd Grade - 5th Grade
Apostle Class ~ Jr High - Sr High
Vacation Church School

VCS is a summer camp program available to kids age 3-12 from Christ the Savior and many other area churches. Kids spend the week learning about the Twelve Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church including: the Feasts of the Theotokos, Feasts of Christ and Feasts of the Church. We have Morning Prayers and Assembly followed by Lesson Time, Games, Crafts, Snack and much more. The children have a wonderful opportunity to learn about their Orthodox Faith in a fun environment and build new friendships.
