Children

4 Years through 5th Grade

Sunday School

Sunday School begins at 9:45 AM in St. Dunstan’s Chapel for Gathering Time, bringing the children together for music, praise, prayer and community.

Following Gathering Time, the children move to their age group Sunday School classrooms. Children 4 years through 3rd grade are taught using Godly Play. This curriculum respects the Montessori method to teach the stories of the Bible through storytelling, ritual, and hands-on activities. Children in 4th and 5th grade are taught using the Connect Curriculum. Connect takes tweens on a journey through the Old Testament and into the New Testament, exploring the connections between several stories each week.

Teachers are volunteers from our parish that feel called to this ministry.  Teachers teach in teams of two and are background checked.  All teachers complete the Safe Church training provided by our Diocese.

Children are brought into the Sanctuary to join their families during the Peace.

Choristers

Third graders are encouraged to join Cranbrook Choristers, which rehearses Mondays and Tuesdays from 5-6.30 PM and sings regularly throughout the school year with a trip to Boston planned for the end of the year.

Saint Francis Choir

Children 4 years through 2nd grade are encouraged to participate in this musical enrichment experience. They will learn basic singing and rhythmic skills through varied activities and Bible-based songs.
