Learning

Sunday School

We have a small Sunday School led by dedicated individuals who have completed Safe Church Training. Our director incorporates new ideas into the curriculum and finds interesting ways to engage the young children. We combine education, crafts and community projects to ensure that our youngest children feel like important members of the church family and form lasting and meaningful relationships with God and the greater community.

Children ages three through 5th grade are invited to take part in lessons, snacks, crafts and fellowship. Yearly events in which they participate are Halloween Trunk or Treat, Easter Egg Hunt, and end-of-the-year cookout.

Youth who are 6th grade and older meet with an adult mentor and discuss issues of faith and community and how they can be intertwined. They are also given the opportunity to serve as acolytes, bring up the gifts, or to be readers during the weekly services.

Church School classes are held from 9:30-10:00 AM on Sunday mornings from September - May. At 10:00, children come upstairs to join their families for the completion of worship. Please contact Kim Forbes or Melanie Hanna for more information

Children's Play Area

We are blessed to have a well stocked play area for young children in the entrance to the church.

Adult Education

Church of Our Saviour has traditionally had an adult education series during Advent and Lent, preceded by a soup supper. This year, we are lengthening the traditional Lenten program so that we can explore Bishop Curry’s curriculum, “The Way of Love.” Please contact the Rector for more information.

EfM

Church of Our Saviour currently has an Education for Ministry (EfM) group which started in 2018. In 2019 we had six returning students and one mentor. We plan to start our 2020 group in September. All are welcome and you do not need to be a member of the Church of Our Saviour to join. Please contact George Paiva for more information.

An exciting Multi-Parish collaboration happening on the South Coast is the annual Four-Parish Retreat. Church of our Saviour in Somerset, Christ Church in Swansea, Church of the Holy Spirit in Fall River and St. Luke’s also in Fall River gather for an October weekend retreat at the Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center in New Hampshire. Please contact Jenn Paiva for more information.
