Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
The Godly Play approach helps children explore their faith through
3rd - 5th Grade
Confidently equipped with knowledge of the Bible, kids take a mature step into their own Bible Study. During class, children enjoy a welcoming activity and prayer. They explore a story together in their Bibles. They will experience creative activities that integrate Bible learning with everyday life and faith beyond the walls of St. Bart’s.
Helping others is a priority in Sunday School. Children visit and sing to elderly residents at Pomerado Manor. We love to support our Vida Joven sponsor child, Daniel, who was living on the streets of Tijuana, Mexico until he found a loving home at Vida Joven. The children enjoy hearing what 5-year-old Daniel gets up to while learning to think of others on a regular basis.
