Sunday School

Please join us for Sunday School at the Parish of Central Saanich! Each Sunday children gather around a "campfire" to explore stories in the Bible selected to tell the whole story of God. There are five parts to the curriculum: Creation, Fall, Israel, Jesus, and Church. In each part we find ways of playing with the story, like making playdough for Creation or building Eden trees out of toothpicks and marshmallows for the Fall. Each activity is specially designed so that children can explore this rich story as children do best - through play. To watch a 5 minute video outlining the story of Jesus in the Bible, click here

We are excited to tell you about a fun club for girls called GEMS. It's geared for girls in grades 4, 5 and 6.  In this club we focus on a growing relationship with Jesus and helping girls transition well into their teenage years.  We also focus on finding the inner beauty and gifts that make each girl a precious gem.

The girls have the opportunity to earn "gems" for baking, sewing, gardening, art, fitness, service to others and acts of kindness to name a few. Each meeting includes singing, Bible study, small group games, crafts and activities, and a snack.  Each session ends with a mug-up (hot chocolate and sharing time).

To register or ask a question, contact Katherine. ("GEMS" stands for "Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior".)
