Children are welcomed, loved and a vital part of our congregation
Fun craft and lesson packets to keep connected!
During this uncertain and ‘socially distant’ time, St. Paul’s Sunday School has been doing its best to keep our children involved, entertained and connected to Christ.
Current Sunday School members have been receiving regular craft and lesson packets via the US mail. If you’d like to be included in our children’s ministry – please send your child’s name, age and address to: SundaySchool@StPaulsCrofton.com
Our normal program gives the children a full month to learn each story. We rotate weekly from Holy Word Theater (movies), to Sunday Morning LIVE (stories), to Bible Quest (games) to Creation Station (crafts)…sometimes with a bit of science or cooking tossed in!
We have continued with a full month of lessons on each story – to ensure maximum learning and repetition.
MARCH LESSON: Daniel & The Lion’s Den - seriously fun crafts like making a lion pillow, lion chow, a maze, and a crossword!
APRIL LESSON: Easter - a cool Easter story, a yummy and insightful Easter cookie recipe, a word search and an anagram!
MAY LESSON: The Great Commandment - Do YOU know what it is? Here are some interesting and fun things to do including how to make awesome "earth" rice krispie treats!
JUNE: coming soon!
Check out more Sunday School AT HOME photos too!
I want to thank all the free online resources that have helped make these ‘at home’ projects possible. Each resource source has been credited or noted.

In-church Sunday School is postponed until further notice
St. Paul's Sunday School meets every Sunday, starting the first Sunday after Labor Day in September and continues thru May.
Children attend the beginning of the 10 am contemporary service with their family and are dismissed to Sunday School following the children's sermon.
Children ages 3 through middle school follow a faith-based rotational learning program. Weekly rotations include movies, stories, crafts, cooking, games and science.

St. Paul's Youth (SPY) is a group for youth beginning in 6th grade.
The youth participate in fun social activities as well as community service projects and church worship activities.
They also have an opportunity to attend Youth Quake, a weekend retreat for youth in grades 6 - 12.
Teens become established in their faith, empowered for Christian living and enabled to live a life of ministry and leadership.
