Our children are educated in the knowledge of Holy Scripture and the sacred tradition of the Anglican Church in Sunday School and Confirmation Class. Our Provincial curriculum, the American Church Union Church School Series, published under the direction of the Anglican Province of Christ the King, uses the Holy Bible and the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and teaches both a sacramental and a scriptural path in our Christian faith.
Our children, ages three and older, often study together in a family atmosphere. Lessons are designed for all ages so that the younger ones are able to participate, while the older ones are challenged to learn on a deeper level. The children engage in a variety of age appropriate activities, such as art, crafts, cooking, music, puzzles, games and dramatic play that re-enforce the study materials.
Our children follow the seasons of the Church Year: The children tell the story of the Incarnation in the Christmas Pageant, often with costumes and carols. On Palm Sunday, the children might lead the congregation in the traditional procession around the church, waving palms. On Easter Sunday they often decorate a large white cross with flowers as part of the festive Easter Liturgy.
Children ten and older prepare for Confirmation by attending Confirmation classes, which use The Anglican Confirmation Manual and the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Nursery care is encouraged for children under three.
The Province of Christ the King is a family of parishes across the country that cherish children, for children are the future. Through outings and activities, age two to ninety-two, babies to great-grandparents, we learn from each other, as God speaks to us through the generations.
