Grades 9 to 12
Following the morning service, our Pastor leads the high school Sunday School classes. Grades 9 & 10 meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and we are learning the Heidelberg Catechism through the program “HC and Me”. Grades 11 & 12 meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays and we are learning the Belgic Confession through the program “What We Believe”.
Grades 2 – 8
The Sunday school program for Grades 2 to 8 meets Sunday morning after the sermon. The Grades 2 to 5’s curriculum is from Faith Alive. The Grade 6-8 students are given a binder with questions on the sermon and discuss sermon points as their Sunday school lesson. We try to alternate teachers each month. We are thankful for the teachers that are willing to commit their time each Sunday for a month to the students.
On the last Sunday of the month the students all go to the Emo Hospital to sing for the seniors. What a blessing this is, the seniors so clearly appreciate having the younger students singing for them. We sometimes struggle through unfamiliar songs but it doesn’t seem to take away from the moment.
This year for our Christmas program we enjoyed the opportunity to do a Candle light service with the Young Peoples. A rehearsal and Pizza party was a good time for the students to get to know the young peoples.
Although our numbers are currently small (approximately 12 students) we joyfully anticipate some significant increases over the next few years and are spending time revaluating our curriculum to meet these changes.
3 – 6 Year Old
3-6 yr old Sunday School is a ministry of the Emo CRC for children ages 3-6. It takes place during the morning service. Part way through the service, children are dismissed to the main Sunday School room where altogether they sing, give to the collection and practice the memory verse of the month. After this the children are divided into two classes – a younger and an older class – for the Bible story and activity. All children ages 3-6 are welcome to attend!
Your young children will be well cared for, by 3-4 volunteers, in our nursery. Children, from infant to age three (or until ready for Junior Sunday School), may play or sleep in the child care area that consists of a crib and nursing room, change room and play area.
Parents are encouraged to label the child’s belongings and fill out a brief information sheet to help us better tend your child. The Nursery is located near the Sanctuary and parents are welcome to check on their child as needed.
