Alison Patton and Lisa Ornberg are two of the most creative energetic women I know! They breath fun and excitement into the Christ Church Sunday School classes for our second through fifth graders. They also host an online program Tuesday evenings on Facebook which reaches a very wide audience. Bible lessons are brought to life with theater and experiments each week. These amazing women work with our other teachers to create a beautiful Christmas Pageant each year and a clever Easter Pageant, new in 2021. Additionally, Alison and Lisa teach an Early Communion class to second graders every other year.
Dana Pancaro and Kathleen Leggett are two gentle caring souls who introduce our youngest children to God’s glory. Their classes, of pre-K through first grade children,are filled with arts and crafts, movement and song, keeping the children actively engaged as they learn each week’s Bible story.
Valerie Knowles is a dedicated young woman who enthusiastically gives of her time both during the church service as a Children’s Chapel leader, when she’s not on the altar serving as an Acolyte, and also during Sunday School as a teacher of our sixth through eighth grade kids. Their lessons follow the Gospel each week and offer discussion and insight. These classes also prepare the eight graders for their following year in Confirmation class, which is led by Father Erik and Kristy Allardyce.
