The Emanuel Christian Education program reaches people from their first days of life through adulthood. The Emanuel Christian Education program is a collaborative effort between the Pastor, Sunday School Teachers, Youth Group Leaders, and the Minister of Music. Business is conducted in the meetings of the Christian Education Committee (usually held every 2-3 months), which is co-ordinated by Shirley Talluri. Sunday School Teachers participate in the Committee which is open to anybody interested in Christian Education.
The year of 2012-2013 has been redesigned to suit the timings of the parish members. Children are eligible for Sunday school two years prior to starting Kindergarten. Sunday school is mainly divided in to two age groups:
Multi-age (Pre-kindergarten to Fourth grade)
Middle School (Fifth-eighth grades)
The high school students assist the teachers on Sundays.
Sunday school is held from 10:15a.m. to 11:15 a.m, after which the children join their families in the sanctuary to take part in the communion and remainder of the service. The curriculum used in our Sunday school program this year is "Bible stories"- major stories of the Bible that form a basic understanding of Christian faith. The children also enjoy art and craft activities. They take part in special services like Advent Sunday, Palm Sunday and Pentecost Sunday.
