Christian Education: learning takes many forms
At Our Saviour we know that there are different ways of learning. Both our adult and youth programs reflect a rich diversity, spanning traditional Bible study to contemplative prayer to setting out on pilgrimage or walking a labyrinth. Opening ourselves to new ways of looking at things can allow God to break into our lives in deeply fulfilling ways.
Children and family are invited to gather in Grace Chapel at 9:30am for a service before the children go up to their classrooms and the rest of the family head for church. (9am: optional "Kid's Time at Nine" meet in Allan Hall! This makes it possible for parents to attend the 9am FORUM)
Sunday School for Children: preschool through 2nd grade and 3rd grade through 5th grades meet in two classrooms in Brown Hall each Sunday from 10am until about 10:50am. They then return to church at the Peace. [see Sunday School]
There is youth sermon for acolytes and youth in acolyte room (north east of main church) on Sundays. All youth are welcome.

In our ongoing small group studies participants share their lives together while engaging in spiritual study, members often forming deep friendships. Many groups study scripture or read a book of mutual interest: others follow a curriculum.

I weave a silence on my mind.
I weave a silence within my heart.
I close my ears to distractions.
I close my eyes to attentions.
I close my heart to temptations.
Calm me, o Lord,
as you stilled the storm.
Still me, o Lord,
keep me from harm.
Let all the tumult within me cease.
Enfold me Lord in your peace.
--Traditional Celtic prayer
