In Other Sunday School News …

Beginning Sunday, September 8, our Sunday School students will be joining us in worship before moving to their class time. The Discovery Time has been moved to earlier in the worship service; it is during this time that children will be introduced to the topic of the morning and their offering given. The teacher and assistant (to comply with Safe Church practices) for that morning’s class will meet the children in the back of the sanctuary space. While our renovation project continues, our Sunday School students will meet all together in the Conference Room for their class. Parents are required to go to pick up their child/ren from the Conference Room when worship is finished.

All children will be given their own Bible storybook, Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young. These will be given out on Sunday, September 15, during worship. This is a wonderfully worded and illustrated book of Bible stories that will be used throughout the year as our students learn the stories of our faith.

The tentative schedule is as follows:

Sunday, September 8                         Welcome Back Sunday

Sunday, September 15                       God’s Big Plan – story of creation

Sunday, September 22                       The Story of Noah

Sunday, September 29                       God’s Friend: Abraham

Sunday, October 6                             No Sunday School – Race for the Cure Event
