When Jesus was asked to identify the most important commandment in the entire Bible, He quoted a portion of Deuteronomy 6, “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” His Jewish audience knew by memory the remaining portion of this verse – ”these commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” (Deut. 6:5-7)
For church and families, our primary response in grateful obedience to God’s love is the careful instruction of children – impressing God’s Word on their hearts. SFC’s Children’s Ministry is committed to helping families do just that. To ensure this takes place, we identified: 1. key portions of Scripture, 2. Bible literacy (i.e., the books of the Bible), and 3. foundational components of Anglican liturgy as the basis for HeartWork. During children’s classes (3 years – 5th grade), we will commit HeartWork to memory through engaging lessons, joyful songs, beautiful art, fun activities, and helpful take-home resources.
The Infant and Toddler Nurseries are available
for the duration of the worship service.
St. Cecilia Choir is for children of reading age through the 5th grade.
We will sing music based on Scripture memorized during HeartWork
on Sunday mornings. Beginning Thursday, September 14th,
we will meet at SFC from 5:30 – 6:30pm.
