Our church school program for children ages 3 through 11 is based on the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) to http://www.cgsusa.org/default.
At each of the levels of CGS children are drawn into the aspects of Christian faith that correspond to their developmental needs at that time:
Level I: Children ages 3 to kindergarten Young children are sensitive to the need for protection – our core message is the love and care of the Good Shepherd.
Level II : Children ages 6-9 (grades 1st to 3rd) Our work with this age group focuses on moral issues – our work focuses on moral parables including the True Vine, The Found Coin and The Forgiving Father.
Level III: Children ages 9-11 (grades 4th and 5th) Older children are sensitive to heroism and able to see a larger historical context – our work focuses on the plan of God and stories of Abraham, Moses, Noah and other Hebrew scriptures.
Beautiful visual and tactile materials are a highlight of the program and we integrate music, theatre, and fun activities into all of our levels.
