The Sunday School at Stamford United is under the guidance and support of Paisley Janvary Pool and the Christian Education and Development Committee of The Council. Our Sunday School program runs from early fall through to the spring with our own curriculum. The children, adult Bible study and Sunday morning worship all follow the same monthly theme. Junior Congregation, for ages 5 and under, continues during holidays and throughout the summer months.
All children are welcome to attend and you may join our program at any time. There are teaching classes for all children from age two and up.
Paisley teaches the young children while Rev. Cathie Ellarby teaches the older class. We also have a nursery for infants. We need volunteers in the Nursery. The Sunday School meets during worship service which starts at 10:00 a.m.
On a typical Sunday morning, the children gather at the front of the church during the worship service for a story time with the Minister. Following the story, the children go downstairs to their respective classes for their own program. From time to time the Sunday School will join the congregation for an intergenerational worship service or conduct a worship service for the entire congregation in the sanctuary.
We endeavour to recognize the children within their families and community, especially the church community. Parents are encouraged to get involved and to talk with their children's teachers about the Sunday School program.
The people who teach in the Sunday School are all volunteers. They are dedicated and their preparation is appreciated. Older teens are encouraged to volunteer and develop their leadership skills in this Christian, supportive setting.
