St. James in the Hills Episcopal Church provides a Sunday School program for children (ages 5 through High School) where they actively participate in learning about God and His Son, Jesus Christ, the Christian faith, and living one’s life as a Christian person. Sunday School meets on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. and 11:30 to 12:15 for our Hispanic Sunday School. The curriculum is Bible based.
During the school year (September through June) presentations are made by the children to the congregation, on Palm Sunday, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation Sunday and Youth Recognition Sunday. The children learn the importance of helping others by participating in collecting food items for Thanksgiving baskets, participating in the Good Samaritan’s Shoe Boxes and collecting socks for the Jubilee Center, which ministers to the homeless, and which Saint James, supports. In the summer, Sunday School is provided. All students are taught together, and share the lessons they have learned over the year with each other.
The success of the Sunday School program at St. James is due to the dedicated effort of 10 volunteers who are the teachers. They have all taken the course offered by the Diocese of Southeast Florida “Safeguards for Children and Youth”which helps churches create safe environments for children and youth, and those who minister to them.
If you are interested in learning more about our Sunday School, please talk with Mrs. Laureen Clarke, Director of the Sunday School, or with Mrs. Joy James Williams, Director of Christian Formation and Education, or with the Reverend Father Paul Kane. Church office: 954-987-5746
