WELCOME BACK!! We look forward to the start of another Sunday Church School year and kick off the new year in the “SWEETEST” way possible on August 28, 2022. Immediately following Divine Liturgy, you are invited to Wonka’s Chocolate Factory aka Plato Hall. Don’t worry you won’t need a Golden Ticket to get in, everyone is Welcome!!

This year especially, we are overflowing with excitement to Welcome Back our returning students and Welcome our New Students to join us. So excited in fact we couldn’t wait until our traditional Kickoff event start time of September.

There’s a lot of excitement ahead of us and a few surprises. As Willy Wonka said, “For some moments in life there are no words”. However, more importantly our program commits its efforts to the spiritual and educational development of our children. We encourage all parents to support each child’s consistent Sunday Church School attendance, to bring your children and expose them to the beautiful gift of Orthodox Christianity.

We ask that you complete the registration form by August 26, 2022 by using this link:  SCS Registration - google form

We will be selecting five (5) names of children from the submitted registration forms to receive their Golden Tickets. Golden Ticket winners will be in for the first of many surprises that await this year’s SCS Students.

Finally, it is our privilege to be able to serve as Spiritual Father and Interim Director of our Assumption Sunday Church School program. With your help and cooperation, we look forward to another spiritually uplifting year. With your continued support of the Assumption Church School program, we are confident of its continued growth.

In Christ’s Love,

Father Apostolos N. Georgiafentis

Mission Statement

The purpose of Orthodox Christian Education is to help build up the Church, the Body of Christ, by nurturing every person in the life of personal communion with the Holy Trinity (theosis), and thus, through this ministry, to bear joyful witness to God's loving and redeeming work in the world.

The Orthodox Christian Education aims at the communication of the content of Christian truth in the context of concrete Christian living: believing, praying, worshipping, learning, applying, growing, sharing, serving and witnessing.

We accomplish these goals by providing age appropriate curriculum and faithful and enthusiastic individuals to teach our students.

Therefore, the mission of our Sunday Church School program is based on an approach which prepares the students with the principles of the Orthodox Faith, encouraging them to grow in God’s service. Our program builds a solid foundation for the children of our community through exemplary lessons in the teaching and the Worship Practices of the Greek Orthodox Christian Faith, using the fundamental tools of:

participating in community worship and private prayer
sharing in the total life of the church
learning how to follow Jesus Christ and His Gospel Message
serving the needs of others in and around the community
fulfilling Christ’s mission in the world

Through these intertwined tools we hope each child has received not only the communication of Christian truth called Orthodoxia, but also a formation of Christian Character by living a lifestyle representative of our Christian Faith called Orthopraxia
