Today we met for our first Sunday School class of the new academic year. We reviewed some of the things we studied last year and described what we would be studying this year. You can see below the Old Testament saints and subjects we will be studying this semester. As a basis for our lessons we use Elizabeth Jacobs’ Orthodox Curriculum “Our Return to God. Enter In You Faithful”.
