About Our Sunday School
This is a spiritual organization functioning in all the parishes of the Orthodox Church throughout the world. It takes care of the spiritual nurturing of the children, by bringing them up in the knowledge and fellowship of Jesus Christ and His Church.
Sunday school is an integral part of our church along with the Youth leauge,Martha Mariam Samajam etc. It focuses on providing a good foundation to our children about the basics of the Orthodox faith and lessons from the Bible.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it…"
The Sunday school commences with the Gospel reading of the day being read and its significance being explained. The children are divided into different classes based on their ages as primary, junior and senior. They are taught Bible stories, songs, memory verses and various other activities.
Other than the regular classes, the Sunday school holds various activities annually like competitions, picnic etc. The Sunday school shows an active participation in presenting a number of programs on the important days of the church calendar like Christmas, Easter, Perunnal as well as on Onam. The Sunday school extends its activities with the children readily taking part and expressing their various talents at the 10 day OVBS [Orthodox Vacation Bible School] at our mother church niranam valiya pally, inter regional church competitions, Christmas Ecumenical church programs and Christmas Talent night show held by our mother church.
