Sunday School for Elementary Age
NEW SCHEDULE BEGINNING JANUARY 9:
Sunday School meets at 9:00 - 9:45 am
Pre School, Elementary, Youth and Adults will all have a class!
We are offering two multi-age Sunday School classes... if we have enough people to teach each week.
The 1st - 5th Graders will combine in Room 210 with two teachers. It is our largest room and has an air purifier.
We will keep doors open, and everyone must wear a mask.
Creative Movement & Music AND Children & Worship classes will be held as usual following the Children's Message during the worship hour (which is now 10:15 - 11:15 am)
The Pre School and Elementary Classes will be taught by rotating volunteers - we are hoping to get volunteer teachers on a weekly basis, and have created a SIGN UP to do that! If you are willing to lead, and have taught at our church before, please sign up! If you are new, and want to sign up, give Deannine Shipman a call at church first so you know what the safety procedures are!
Here is the link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0448a5af29aa8-fall
Deannine will send a weekly email with lessons and activities for parents who are not choosing to come back in person yet. If you are not getting those emails, please let the church office know! Sometimes this will be ideas for family discussion, readings, and devotions, while other times there might be some videos (You Tube) ! We hope that some of our families might be willing to help make some of these videos and share them!
Many thanks for your support and understanding,
Deannine Shipman, Director of Education and Program
NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL SCHEDULE
Each Sunday we offer classes for Preschoolers through High School students. We are presently using "Growing in Grace & Gratitude" (PCUSA) for our Elementary children up through Grade 5. Children, youth, and teachers are always on a faith adventure as they learn about the Bible and our faith traditions in the Presbyterian Church. Each session of Growing in Grace & Gratitude is rooted in Bible stories that reveal God's grace.
The hallway to our Elementary wing features a hand painted mural that says "Where The Bible Comes to Life ..." And we hope it does indeed "come to life" in our classes.
The Sunday School Classes start at 9:00 am. Children in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades who go to a program, such as Creative Movement & Music or Children and Worship, following the Children's Message during the worship service. Children in 3rd Grade and older will stay in worship with their families.
