Sunday School is in person each week at 9:00am for babies through 5th grade. We are currently following Covid-19 best practices including mask wearing for children over 2 years and social distancing. Sunday School check in is at the rear doors. Children will be masked when they are indoors and with a parent or guardian’s permission, may unmask when they are outside. All volunteers working with children (including those who are vaccinated) will remain masked. During 10:30 worship, Nursery Care is available for children 5 and under.
This Week in Sunday School
A 5-WEEK SERIES FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT ABOUT JESUS’ EARLY LIFE & MINISTRY
Museums have the unique ability to transform learning! Instead of merely reading words on a page, we can experience them through all of our senses! A Day at the Museum is a series all about helping kids interact with the stories of Jesus and connecting them to God. Jesus’ life and early ministry helps all of us experience (see, hear . . . even taste!) and follow God in new, tangible, and real ways.
Tip of the Month:
When we think of gifts that kids have we tend to think of certain, visible type of gifts in areas like music, athletics, or leadership. Those are all excellent skills and gifts that a kid can share with the world . . . But there are so many more amazing gifts that we can recognize, celebrate, and develop!
For those of you with preteens, you know what’s coming . . . lots of difficult conversations. Fortunately, we found a wonderful RESOURCE to help you get started on having some of these talks with your tween in less awkward ways. Okay, it might still be awkward. But you can navigate these topics with more grace and keep the communication going during this key developmental stage!
