► Sunday School for All!
We extend an invitation to people of all ages to continue to learn about God and be in fellowship with one another. Sunday School is an important building block to all in our faith journeys. Our Sunday School classes start at 9:00am and wrap up at 9:45am each week. Children four years of age, Fifth Graders and everyone in between gather in the Sunday School Rooms. Sixth through Twelfth Graders gather in the Youth Lounge. Our Adult Class gathers in the Pastor’s Office (though during Advent it will gather in our upstairs Multipurpose Room).
We ask that all parents, grandparents, or guardians bring their children to the Sunday School Room on their first visit to Sunday School and complete a registration form. This will enable us to provide a nurturing and safe environment for our children and teachers.
► Kids’ “Jesus And Me” Wednesdays
The Wednesday J.A.M.s run from 4:45pm to 7:00pm each Wednesday thru Spring for kids four years of age up to Twelfth Grade. The theme for the season is “The Way of the Child”. We will have Bible Study, games, music, fun and dinner.
Please sign up your child(ren). Younger children and youths will have their own separate Bible Study times and Rev. Mary is very excited about working with our Sixth to Twelfth Graders. Wonderful meals will be prepared by wonderful chef team of our own Sandy P. & Greg W., while Darcy W. & Emily M. will be teaching our young people how to ring beautiful music. We are so excited to help our young people experience God. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Evans at the Church Office.
See our Sunday Bulletins and Clarion NewsLetters for more on dates and up-dates and such.
