The Lifelong Learning Ministry: Children

Toddler to Grade 5


Sunday School is open to children ages 16 months through 5th grade, and runs throughout the school year. There is no Sunday School on the last Sunday of the month for Level 2 (Kindergarten to 2nd grade) and Level 3 children (3rd to 5th grade), so that children can participate in Youth Sunday (see below). However, Sunday School will be held on that Sunday for the Toddlers and Level 1 children. 

Children can start Sunday School at any time during the program year. If you have a child that you would like to have participate, please contact Linda Baier.

Worship for Children and Youth | The last Sunday of every month is Youth Sunday. This is a special Sunday when we can attend church with our families and the St. Matthew’s family! There will be opportunities for CGS children to participate throughout the liturgy.
