Our Sunday School program is open to all children Age 3 through Grade 5. Children engage with the Bible’s stories of God’s amazing love for everyone using the interactive and Bible-focused Spark! curriculum. Parents whose children will participate in Sunday School may visit our dedicated Spark website at http://emanuelhartford.sparksundayschool.org
As three year olds enter the Sunday School program they are given Prayer Pillows, lovingly made by Emanuel members. Each week at Sunday School the preschool children receive a card, with a Bible verse and simple prayer, that fits in the pocket on the front of the pillow. At bedtime the children can share with Jesus their thanks, fears and love for God’s creation, always remembering that God promises always to listen.
All Sunday School children participate in the annual Festival of the Nativity, offered during the 10:00 a.m. worship service on the fourth Sunday of Advent. From lambs to angels, from shepherds, Elizabeth and the Wise Men to Mary and Joseph, the children tell and sing the good news of the birth of our Savior.
Children are also welcome to participate in Emanuel’s annual Lucia Festival.
