Orthodox Kids Teach – Thematic Study: Church

Orthodox Kids Teach Series

We will begin our first series of questions with a thematic study. Our first theme will be exploring and investigating our being at, and experiencing church. I have included a calendar of due dates to hopefully better explain the direction we will be going. I will share the October calendar, which is a continuation of the theme, closer to time.

How Orthodox Kids Teach works:

Every week (or two weeks) there will be a new topic, question, or a series of questions for your child or children to share and record their organic thoughts about, and send in. The videos collected will then be edited and turned into a short video to share on our YouTube Channel. Permission: everyone/anyone in the video or pictures must give their permission and/or have their parent’s permission.


  • Ask your child the question(s) (or it may be a topic) and record their answer using your phone (see the link on how to record a sound bite.) It can either be a video, sound bite, handwritten note, drawing, typed note, or feel free to be creative!!!!

–     Email it to tocpkids@gmail.com with the question/topic title in the subject line.

– In the body of the email please include their first name and age.

– Once you send in your work, please make sure you receive a confirmation email

to show that it has been received.

Thank you so much and please let me know if you have any questions.
