Christian Education

Sunday Church School for ALL ages at 9:15AM September (Sunday after Labor Day) through mid-May (Sunday before Memorial Day).

The theme for 2016 is The Lord is my Shepherd, I Shall Not Want.

Rally Day is September 11. Please join us in the Old Fellowship Hall to kick off a new year of learning.

Breakfast for the children will be held downstairs at 9 AM each Sunday. Boxes of cereal, juice boxes, and fresh fruit are always welcomes. We ask that you bring your children at 9 AM so they have time to eat and get to their Sunday School class on time.

Adult Class
Meets during the Sunday School hour in room 203.

Adult Class Sunday School plans include:

A Reformation Review … As part of the reformation anniversary celebration we
will look at John Wycliffe, John Hus, Martin Luther, the Swiss Reformation, the
Anabaptists and William Tyndale.

Also as part of Reformation 500 project the graphic novel “Papa Luther” will be
used … It is the exciting story of Martin Luther, told through the eyes of his
children Hans and Magda. Later this novel will be shared with the younger
children of the Sunday church school.

Know Your Bible … All 66 Books Explained and Applied … This powerful
learning tool is packed with information; it includes a short synopsis and a longer summary of each Scripture book; and a “So what?” section of practical application. Perfect for new believers and longtime Christians!

Our non-learning activities will include participation in Rally Day and other
planned joint Sunday school activities as well as helping pack the congregation’s
ingathering collection, making cheer bags for use by the Christmas carolers, and
whatever the class wants to do.

Join us in room 203 as you are able between 9:15 –10:15 (give or take a few
minutes) all adults are welcomed.
