St. Christopher's Children's Formation offers a four-tiered approach to Christian education. Our program is based on teaching the Gospel and growing our faith. We meet at 10am in our classrooms downstairs. This year our theme is "All God's Creatures Big and Small"! We have one classroom for "Little Creatures" ages 4-8, and our "Big Creatures" ages 9-12.
Gospel Curriculum Sunday School
Every week we follow the same Gospel lessons as our adults, told in a Children's story format, usually from Spark Children's Bible or Jesus Storybook Bible.
The format of learning each Sunday is
Craft or Activity Together
Word & Action Item for the Week
