Sunday school has ended for the 2016/2017 school year. There will continue to be nursery care throughout the summer for kids younger than Kindergarten. Kindergarten – 5th graders can work through their church folders, located in the narthex, during the service. If they prefer, children can join Ms Ginny in the narthex midway through the service for quiet coloring, stories and activities.
VBS was a fun week for all this year. We searched for treasure throughout the week and discussed the differences between treasures on Earth and treasures in Heaven. We painted treasure maps on our faces, made treasure boxes, hunted for clues, learned songs, dabbled in yoga and created lots of fun crafts. Overall, we learned about the love Jesus has for us and we enjoyed our time together. We are already looking forward to VBS 2018!
Sunday school will start back up at the end of August. We welcome Mr. Alan Freeman to the ranks of K-2 teachers and we are lucky to have Dr. Thompson and Mr. Welhouse back again with the 3rd-5th grade classroom. Having a second teacher for K-2 will allow Ms. Ginny to spend time in both classrooms, working with all kids, K-5th grade.
We will continue to have family and youth service projects for the 2017/2018 school year. Most of these service times will fall on weekends, as in previous years. Our youth group will be changing things up a bit and will find a weeknight time that works for most to gather once a month for fellowship and discussions. Having monthly evening meetings will hopefully make participation easier for the youth of our church. More details to follow!
