Those who are taught the word must share in all good things. (Galatians 6:6)
Christian Education for Children and Teens
Christ Church welcomes families and children of all ages. We invite new students to join our classes at the start of the school year. We also welcome visitors and newcomers at any point during the year.
Three common threads run through our education programs: building knowledge and understanding of the Bible, and what it means to us; learning about the Episcopal Church's traditions and worship; and fostering a life-long commitment to serving others. Throughout the year, our children/teens are actively engaged in good works: participating in clothing drives for Boston shelters, writing to pen pals at an orphanage in Bolivia, making Valentine’s Day care packages for our service people and college students, and traveling to disaster areas in the U.S. to re-build homes. Our programs give youth opportunities to make friends, explore their faith, and put their faith into action.
Classes begin at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Children and teens rejoin their families at the ongoing 10:00 a.m. service during the Passing of the Peace, so that they can be with their families for Holy Communion.

We provide child care for infants through age three on Sundays beginning at 9:30 a.m. until the end of the 10:00 a.m. worship service. Child care is provided on Sundays when Church School meets. Please ask an usher for directions. As always, infants and young children are also welcome at our worship service.
Our church school programs begin the first Sunday after Labor Day and continue through mid-May, except during holiday and school vacation weekends (following the Needham Pubic School calendar). Click here for the 2012/13 Church School Calendar.
We request that parents register their children for church school classes, based on the child's grade level. Church School Registration and an opportunity to meet the teachers will take place at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 9.
You can download the Registration and Photo Release forms here, or contact the Church Office at email@example.com or 781-444-1469.
We welcome new students at any time during the school year. For interested families, please contact the Reverend Lynn Campbell.
