The last days of summer are already here. I’m getting very excited for the upcoming Sunday school year. But, I still have so much to do to prepare. Be thinking about how you can help out this year when you are called upon.
P3 Tuesday, August 28th, 2018 at 6:30pm: Intro to Sunday School for children starting in our P3 (3-year-old) class. Letters will be sent out with more information. P3 students will receive their Children’s Bible during the 9AM worship service on Rally Sunday, September 9th.
5th grade First communion classes… stay tuned for dates and times as this may depend on the status of a pastor.
Sunday, August 26th at 6:00PM: Teacher meeting. More info to be sent out.
Rally Sunday is September 9th, 2018.
As part of Rally Sunday, the teachers, substitutes, and helpers will be inducted during the 9AM worship service.
We are using the same curriculum this year as last year. Answers Bible Curriculum addresses the real-life issues that confront Christians every day. Students get a thorough understanding of the authority and primary teachings of Scripture. All ages will be equipped to defend the Bible, becoming conformed to the image of Christ, as they apply God’s Word in their everyday lives. Teachers from last year, if you have any curriculum at home, please drop it off at the church in your previous classroom as soon as possible.
Many teachers are still needed. Please consider volunteering your time so that Sunday school is available for our children, the future of our congregation. If you won’t, who will? I challenge you to this role. I’m not going to tell you it’s easy or that it’s just one hour a week. It’s not. Preparation takes time and effort. Jesus challenged his disciples “Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves!” Luke 10:3 Translation: you are going to be eaten alive. But, you will count for something and you will make a difference in the faith life of a child. When I call you, as Jesus called his disciples, what will your answer be? Do you want to make a difference in the faith of a child? Ask someone to co-teach with you or to alternate Sundays with you. Here are the current needs:
Co-teachers for P4, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade
Teachers for 2nd grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade confirmation; Substitutes and helpers. Please contact me with any questions
UPDATED BACKGOUND CHECKS REQUIRED THIS YEAR! The safety of our youth is important. Our Youth Safety Policy requires all those volunteers working with children to complete a background check and application. These are kept confidential. For those that are going to teach, sub, be a helper, transport youth, be part of the youth group committee, etc. you can get the needed forms from the office, Michele Ekern, or myself. The process is easy. These are required every 2 years, so many of you that have had one done previously will need to have another one done.
If you have artistic talent, please let me know. I’m always looking for bulletin board designs.
Thank you to all those that have volunteered their time and donated supplies. It is greatly appreciated.
