- HeARTS for God

HeARTS for God @ St. James' In the City Episcopal Church
 
Yes, children are the “future” of the church, but more importantly they are the “present” of the church. This Fall we will unveil a new way of doing Sunday School.
 
HeARTS for God is our approach this year for teaching children about the Christian life and exploring scripture and tradition using the arts. Designed to speak to the imaginations and creativity of our children, we are pleased to announce our original, informative (and fun) program based on the liturgical seasons. 
 
For the month of October, during the 10:30 services, Children will work on a short dramatic presentation and create costumes based on the lives of the Saints which will be presented during the10:30 service on October 30th in advance of the Feast of All Saints on November 6th
 
All St. James School children are welcome to participate. For more information, please contact the Rev. Jenifer Chatfield, 213-388-3417, ext 106, or jchatfield@stjla.org.
