Ages 3 – Kindergarten
The Shepherd’s Atrium, Room 110

The True Vine Atrium, Room 106
Vivian Blair, Debby Walter, Bonnie Johnson, and Terry Chacko
This is a Montessori-based approach to children’s formation which focuses on the fact that the child already has a relationship with God. Trained leaders, called Catechists, present stories and manipulatives that give the children language to help express this relationship. Class time is child-led, and based on the teaching of Holy Scripture and church tradition. Children gather in an "atrium," a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials that they use.
Sundays, 9:30—10:15 a.m.
Grades 4 & 5
“Live It!” Room 101
In this class, the children focus on learning scripture and Christian faith, and applying it to daily life.
