Sunday School for children PreK through 8th grade


The Sunday School program at the Shelburne United Methodist Church offers religious education in a loving, enriching setting.  We are deeply committed to teaching children about their religious identity.  At the core are three elements: 

 1) the teaching of  Christian values by presenting lessons and activities to enhance the children’s ways of being,

 2) Bible study, learning about the bible as a book of God and the stories of the people of God, and

 3) the power of prayer.

As children grow from PreK through 8th grade, they will gain skills and become more confident to connect with each other, the church community, and their faith.  Our hope is that your children will become thoughtful and sincere followers of God, and will work together to make our community and our world a better place.

Sunday school is in session every Sunday during the 9:30 am service, from September to May (except Christmas Sunday and Easter Sunday).  The children come to worship with their families, and participate. if they wish, in children’s time with the Pastor. Once the special children’s story is concluded, the children exit the sanctuary with their teachers. 

All of our teachers are trained in the Feasting on the Word curriculum, have experience with children, and are knowledgeable in Safe Sanctuaries.

 Other experiences your children will enjoy include:  local community service projects, international mission projects, the Christmas Pageant, Vacation Bible School, children’s musical experiences, and worship service opportunities such as acolyte, communion steward, greeter, and liturgist.

If you have questions, please call us!  The church office number is: (802) 985-3981.  The office is open Monday through Thursday, from 9 am to Noon. Voice Mail is also an option when staff are not present.

Hope, Peace and Love!

Director of Christian Education, Betsy L. Nichols
