Sunday School

By Ursula Pinckney

It's so hard to believe that another year of Sunday school is about to pause for a summer break. This was another year of learning about Jesus and his love and sacrifice for us. We were excited to greet our new Pastor and his family! Then having Mike & Kathy Schmidley step up and help out with the opening, including singing and music, was an unexpected blessing! The students and teachers in pre-school to 5th grade appreciated the great job they did and we want to thank them for all their efforts!

Thanks also go out to Ms. Susan, Ms. Alice, Ms. April, Ms. Brenda and Mr. Mike who worked as our regular teachers! Additional thanks for others who have served as substitutes, program directors, and helpers. Thanks to Pastor Fisher for leading our adult class in Bible Study.

A Sunday school is dependent upon faithful workers who want to see that the children of our church and the friends they may bring hear about the love of God our Father and Jesus his Son. So we pray a special blessing to these people as they shared their love, time and resources with the children of our church.

We would like to ask you to pray that the Holy Spirit guide future growth of our Sunday school and future teachers and helpers in the coming year. Mostly we'd like to encourage you and your children to invite others so that no one is unaware of the love and blessing God has for all of his children!

Confirmation Classes for 2017-2018

Confirmation classes for 7th and 8th grade students will begin in October for the 2017-2018 session, culminating on 3 June 2018 (Pentecost and Confirmation Sunday).

This year, Lesson 1: Introduction to Confirmation and to the 10 Commandments will be held on Sunday, 8 October and Tuesday, 10 October.
