EDUCATION AT EMMANUEL

W.B. Yeats wrote: “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” That is what education at Emmanuel is all about: Lighting a flame, sparking curiosity- it’s not about thinking apart from living. It IS living, alive, informed, in wonder.

Youth Exploration

From the ages of 3 months to 3 years, the children are in the Nursery with a paid Nursery teacher.

From 3 years old on, it’s… Church School (September – May)!  Writing and acting in videos of Bible stories which are shared with the whole congregation; pageants; cooking; games; art: It’s the whole child engaged in the study of the faith.

For more information about our Church School program, contact the church office at office@seeyouonsunday.org and your message will be forwarded to Peggy Hazelberg.

Youths 7th grade and older enter into an intense, year-long study of the faith with Pastor Hawkins which includes mission trips and youth conferences. For more information on the year-long study, contact Pastor Hawkins at pastor@seeyouonsunday.org

Adult Studies

Regular adult studies are held on Tuesday mornings from 10-11am from September through May. Beginning September 18, we will be embarking on a study of Jesus’ most popular parables using the video curriculum “Short Stories by Jesus.”  All are welcome; no Bible background needed. The coffee is good.

A new monthly discussion opportunity began in April: TED (Technology, Education & Design) Talks. These discussion groups are held on Thursdays at 7:00 PM September – May.  All are welcome…we’ll have the coffee on! The next TED Talk will be Thursday, September 20 at 7 PM in the church library.
