One of the best ways to learn more about being an Episcopalian is to teach little Episcopalians! You need not have any formal classroom teaching experience or special knowledge in order to make a difference in church school. We are always in need of assistant and lead teachers and outreach coordinators, and we appreciate any help. For those interested in volunteering, all lesson plans will be available online for easy access. Lessons are simple and easy to implement. And there is a variety of craft and activity choices for each lesson, so volunteer teachers are encouraged to choose those that interest them most.

Please email churchschool@stmichaels-litchfield.org if you are interested in volunteering. Thank you!

Volunteering with 7th – 12th Graders

Our 7th – 12th graders have “Donuts and Discussion” starting at 9:40 a.m. every Sunday, and lasting until the sermon begins, around 10:15 a.m. The discussion is led by an adult group leader. We use the Episcopal Church’s “Lesson Plans that Work,” which are based on the liturgical readings of the week. These plans are simple, easy to execute, and available online.

If you are interested in helping out with the young adults at St. Michael’s, please email us at churchschool@stmichaels-litchfield.org.

Volunteering with K – 6th Graders

Church School for our K – 6th Graders begins at 9:40 a.m. For a description of a typical K – 6th class, please click here.

Sample Lesson

Extensive preparation is not necessary, but you will want to read over the lesson in advance to become familiar with the story; you’ll also need to consider which crafts and activities you’d like to offer and notify the church school director so preparations can be made.

All volunteers who work with children at St. Michael’s are required to take Safe Church training. Information on training dates is available by clicking here. Training must be updated every three years.
