Objectives of our Sunday School

  1. Children raised in this program are taught the spiritual values of Orthodoxy and the rich customs and traditions of the Indian culture.
  2. Our Sunday School, equipped with the latest and best teaching aids, a sound yet flexible curriculum, and staff by qualified teachers, has the following three goals:
  3. To educate our children spiritually and morally, in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the faith and traditions of the Malankara Orthodox Church
  4. To develop in our children the habit of attending church regularly, studying the Scriptures, and participating conscientiously in the worship and sacramental life of our church
  5. . To cultivate in our children a Malankara Orthodox conscience and devotion to our ideals and to prepare them so that they become faithful and devoted dynamic members of our church, our community, and our country

This ministry is to provide a broad overview of the content, history and practice of our faith. We will look at the Scriptures, and very specifically at the Gospels, as well as focus on understanding the liturgy, worship and sacramental life of the Church. We will also discuss personal spiritual disciplines, stewardship, Christian moral values, the development of the virtues and faithful living.


Given that children may be of different ages in their classes at school, the Sunday School has grouped its children according to age to maintain continuity across groups. The minimum enrollment age is three years old and runs through age 18.


10.30 a.m. until they have been dismissed by their teacher (usually around 12.00p.m.).


The Sunday School curriculum is tailored to meet children's spiritual needs across various ages. For the younger children, the curriculum tends to focus on the child's individual needs and deals with Christianity in general terms. The curriculum flexes to the children's interests and desires making the learning process enjoyable and fun. For the older children, the curriculum becomes more systematic, but drives the students to voice their own thoughts and opinions. The subject matter is primarily cantered on the religious traditions in the Malankara Orthodox Church, but will frequently apply religious learning to real-world situations and events. The goal for our older children is to help them apply the fundamentals of Christianity in their life journey and everyday interactions.

Ways that Parents Can Help

The Sunday School

1. Plan to be in Church on time. Arriving on time is sending a message to tour children that it is important to be on time for God. Just as we must be on time for School, work, and social events, we should also be on time for Church every Sunday.
2. See that your child comes to class prepared with Holy Bible, books, homework and reading assignment, etc.
3. Discuss the lesson at home and lt them know that the lesson is an important one that needs to be remembered.
4. Practice the faith at home, observe fast days and schedule family prayer at least in the morning and evening. Children are great imitators - what they see you do, you will see them do.
5. Send them for OVBS and other conferences to the experience and learn the spiritual values and prepare them to win arts competition and examinations
