As the excitement of the new church year approaches, I greet you with a prayer for the new year that can be shared with church school staff and students:
I am pleased to announce new curriculum is now available from the Antiochian Orthodox Department of Christian Education (AODCE). This curriculum focuses on the life of Christ as shown through the Great Feasts of the Church. Lessons for K-12 students are free to download on the Department's website:
In September's issue of The Word magazine, several Orthodox Christian Education resources are highlighted by the AODCE, including the theme for the 2019 Creative Festivals. Please see the the full version at the end of this post.
By using the following link, you will have access to three Orthodox Christian Christmas plays from Orthodox Witness. These plays are free!http://orthodoxwitness.org/ort
I invite you to join the Facebook community of Orthodox Christian Sunday School directors. The group discusses topics relevant to church school directors and provides support directly from the AODCE and fellow directors. This Fall through Facebook Live video, I will review the new Great Feasts of the Church curriculum, as well as other materials and resources. Please join us!
Associate, Antiochian Orthodox Department of Christian Education
