Youth Religious Education
Our mission at Annunciation is to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, soul, strength and mind and our neighbors as ourselves. The goal of the Youth Religious Education program is to guide our youth to grow closer to Christ our God.
With this in mind we are here to help our children grow in their understanding of their Orthodox faith. We provide a safe, nurturing environment for our youth to enable them to learn the doctrines and traditions of the Eastern Orthodox Church. With this knowledge we pray they will be Orthodox on purpose and feel God’s presence in their life.
Our Religious Education program uses many resources recommended by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. A variety of teaching methods are used to provide innovative and creative lessons. Classes are offered for children Pre-K (beginning at age 3) through 12th grade and held August through May, 30 minutes before Divine Liturgy. Our class time enables our youth attend to attend Divine Liturgy each week to be in communion with Christ.
The teachers of the Youth Religious Education program know that parents are the primary teachers in their children’s lives. Children learn best by living their faith with their family at home and with their friends in class, and most especially, as they regularly participate together in the Liturgical and Sacramental life of the Church. Our dedicated teachers provide a welcoming, loving environment for students. All children are always welcome, no matter what. Please join us!
If you are interested in enrolling your child, being involved as a volunteer, or have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact Karen Dunlap firstname.lastname@example.org or Vivian Bozikis email@example.com.
