Education

Minors
During the school year we have Sunday School for the children after Divine Liturgy.  We like to have four age groups: preschool, primary, middle and high school.  Depending on the number of children, sometimes we join two of those groups together.  The Orthodox Church in America requires that 2 (or more) adults be present with a group of children; these adults get background checks run on them every year.

Adults
We also offer Adult Education midweek in the evenings during the school year.  Adult Ed classes are usually series that run 6 to 8 weeks followed by a break for a couple of weeks.  Series that we have done in the past include Life & Death, the book of Job, the book of Tobit, the Lord's Prayer and discernment.

Themes

Classes for both adults and children are based on 1 of 4 themes:  
  • the Old Testment
  • the New Testament
We have a 4-year cycle with 1 theme per year.

Orthodoxy 101 
Additionally, every year, Fr. Michael teaches an "Orthodoxy 101" class that also meets midweek, once a week, and everyone (adults and children) is welcome to attend.
