RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

 

 SUNDAY SCHOOL

  

Sunday school classes are held during our worship service, from 10 -11 AM. The first Sunday of each month finds our children in church with their parents  or another adult for the entire service. The purpose for this is to give our youngsters an opportunity to become familiar with the worship service, enjoy the hymns and learn, as they are able, regular parts of the service such as the Lord's Prayer which often is sung.

 

The other Sundays of the month the children attend a short part of the regular church service with their parents or another adult and then are dismissed for Sunday school.  The day's activities may include crafts, bible lessons, music or preparation for special holiday productions. Ages for the children range from infants to teens.

 

We extend a welcoming hand to all children in our local and other nearby communities. Our Sunday School accepts children no matter what their religious or non religious background. We are here to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to give the young people a firm Christian foundation on which to stand in the years ahead of them.

 

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL

 

This season we will be focusing on the psalms and proverbs. We wll learn how they can help us in many ways.

 

We recently studied the story of the Good Shepherd and His sheep. By learning the 23rd Psalm we found how we, as God’s sheep, can be led into a better way of life through the Word of God. We use puppets, stories, crafts and even songs to enhance the lessons we study.

 

Although Children’s minds are already in 4th gear by the time they arrive in Sunday School, we calm down with our opening. Our Children’s church begins with a sharing of what is going on in their lives. We follow this by the lighting of our altar candles, a story and prayer. With Jesus as our Good Shepherd all things are possible. We always have fun by learning God’s way!
