It has been so much fun to welcome the kids back to Sunday School this past month! We have a wonderful teaching staff of both parents and high school youth to guide our children this year in Sunday School. Our high school youth make up two thirds of the teaching team this year! It is ministry in action by our very own youth. How awesome is that?
We have started the program year digging into some Old Testament stories about Joseph and will spend the next few weeks learning about Ruth. During our large group time together, we have been learning new and traditional songs using both our voices and sign language and have even learned a global song with roots in Zimbabwe! The kids are learning a lot about the church seasons and the traditions and rituals that go with each season.
Here are a few dates to note for the month of October:
Oct 5: Blessing of the Stuffed Animals. Children of all ages are invited to bring their most beloved stuffed animals for a special blessing after worship with Pastor Haug.
Oct 19: No Sunday School (MEA break)
This past Sunday we launched the Guardian Angel program. The children have prepared a communication to their Guardian Angels which will be delivered soon! As our program continues to grow, our need for Guardian Angels will grow too. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Guardian Angel, please contact Diane LaMere, Children’s Ministry Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
