HOPE

SSPP Church SchoolThe Hope group meets every Monday morning from 9:30 am to 11:00 am, with mothers and/or fathers and their young children. There is a twofold mission to our meetings. First and foremost we want to make the children familiar, comfortable and excited about coming to the Church. This playtime is very important to the children as they learn the very important lessons of interacting with their peers, sharing and meeting new people. Secondly, this is a great time for mothers/fathers with toddlers to get together for fellowship with other young parents who can share and offer support to one another if needed. During this time we spend generous amounts of playtime in the nursery and gym running around and having fun, in addition to telling stories in the Church. Please watch our monthly newsletter for days, times and special field trips.

FAITH, LOVE, & JOY


Faith, Love & Joy is our Elementary-aged Youth Ministry. We meet once a month on the 3rd Friday of every month. We will go through rotations, and learn about our faith, ourselves and each other while having a lot fun making crafts, playing in the gym and being in the church. Keep an eye out for our calendar to find upcoming events and meeting times.

Our goal with our Youth Ministries is to develop our youth’s relationship with Christ. We do so by creating a community of Orthodox youth centered around worship, service and fellowship, allowing them to develop individually through relationships with each other and to experience the faith.
