4th-6th Grade: Episcopal Children’s Curriculum

Meets at 9:45 a.m. (Sept-May) or 9 a.m. (June-July) in the Jerusalem Room in Lower Parrish Hall


Our 4th-6th graders also meet up at the start of the service and rejoin the greater congregation for the Eucharist. In class, these students continue to build their understanding of the Bible and practices in the Episcopal worship service. We build on the foundation established in Children’s Chapel and Godly Play. We have moved to this new curriculum in the fall of 2022 after using Gather Round previously; it has a three-year cycle and a variety of activities that adapt well to different teachers and students. Its focus is on Scripture and the work of God in our lives, and each year also takes a different angle into our liturgical life, like baptism and the Eucharist.

Through additional outreach activities, students deepen their caring for other people and for animals needing our protection. For example, in the past students have collected clothes for family shelters and socks and mittens for the homeless, or planned and hosted bake sales to raise funds for a local animal shelter.
