“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14
A church without children is a church without a future. At Saint Mina and Saint Mercurius’s, we understand the importance of focusing on our kids; and that’s why we’ve created different ministries that cater to two of the major age groups: Elementary and Junior High. Each ministry is comprised of dedicated servants to plan, organize, and execute Sunday School, youth activities, retreats, outreach, and taking on the responsibility of being role models in Christ. There’s always something going on at SMSM’s when it comes to our youth, and we take the initiative in introducing them to mission, as well as teaching them the beauties of the Coptic Church. We strive to make our church a second home for our children.
The mission of Sunday School is to give our kids a foundation of knowledge as they grow in faith in Christ and to live in fellowship with one another, always bearing joyful witness to Jesus Christ’s loving and redeeming work in the world.
Our Sunday school class aims to make kids grow in the knowledge of Christ, through Bible stories, and spiritual fun activities and trips. Our curriculum focuses on the faith of the Orthodox church, its sacraments and courageous saints. Classes are for all JK to Gr 8.
