Family Education News for August 2019
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 27th, 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 8th.
5th grade First communion classes… four sessions on Wednesdays beginning September 4th – 25th from 5:30pm – 6:15pm in the quilting room. *Note: this begins before Sunday school starts.
Sunday, August 25th at 6:00PM: Teacher meeting. More info to be sent out.
Sunday school begins with Rally Sunday on September 8th, 2019.
As part of Rally Sunday, the teachers, substitutes, and helpers will be inducted during the 9AM worship service.
Rally Sunday is September 8th, 2019.
Our theme for the coming year: Build Each Other Up
Verse = 1 Thessalonians 5:11
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
Join us during the 9am worship service for installation of volunteers and during Sunday School from 10:05-11:05am for fun activities to start off another year!

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. However, 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.
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.
