"St James pray for us!!!"

St James Syrian Orthodox Church

Sunday School Program

Members of St James believe that one of the biggest gift we could give to our children is bringing them up in faith of our lord Jesus Christ. We believe Sunday School is one of the key vehicles to achieve this and also to pass on our traditions, culture and goodwill. So St. James Church has started an active and ambitious Sunday school program.

In coordination with our Archdiocese we believe mission of our Sunday School program is to

Develop an understanding of Bible to provide a strong foundation for Christian Living (build knowledge).
Help our children understand that God has a plan for each of them (individual study and analysis).
Lead our children to a personal commitment to follow Jesus (decision making).
Learn to worship our Lord through singing and praying and help them remain in that commitment (hold the faith and grow)

We plan to achieve this mission by

Implementing a structured program for learning the Word of God.
Sharing our faith and help them to seek guidance from Bible
Providing interactive environment to understand and experience God’s love and His call.
Educate our children the need for regular worship and offer exciting opportunities to be with children who keep the same Christian values. Introduce them to the faith and sacraments of the Church.

We have regular Sunday School classes every Sunday after the Holy Qurbono.
