Encouraging Disciples through Christian Education
"For the Holy Spirit will teach you...." (Luke 12:12a)
Virtual Story Time—Soaring With God
Our children need to know that God is with us during these trying times and that the Spirit gives us the strength we need to persevere. We will host a Virtual Story Time this summer. Using the theme of Isaiah 40:31, “Those who hope in the Lord…will soar on wings like eagles,” we will highlight topics such as: kindness, confidence, love, strength, togetherness and dealing with change. Using books from a Christian publishing house, Flyaway Books, a new book will be read and discussed every Wednesday morning on our YouTube channel at 10am, starting July 1st:
We will share in some virtual activities, too. And, for those children who are registered, we will provide a box of crafts for use with each story and spend some time making those crafts “together.”
The Virtual Story Time videos will be available to anyone on YouTube once they are released each week. But only those children who are registered will receive the box of craft kits ahead of time. The registration fee is $25. To register, please contact Lisa Guida at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday School is offered after the Time with Children during Sunday morning worship. Seasonal events for children are also offered, including an Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible Camp, Santa’s Workshop and more. Children participate in worship periodically. For example, our Christmas Pageant involving all age children and youth is offered in our 4pm Christmas Eve worship.
See Calendar for dates and times of all youth and children events. Details can be sought from our Christian Educator, Lisa Guida at email@example.com
Confirmation Class is offered to Jr. High age students. The curriculum includes lessons on the Bible, the Church and its Mission, Leadership and living the Christian life. It also includes Mission Projects and Service Opportunities.
A Soup and Bread event is sponsored on Wednesday evenings during Lent. After a light meal of--you guessed it!--soup and bread, a study is offered by the Pastor. This year's study runs from 3/4 to 4/1. The theme is Forgiveness. See the calendar for details or contact Pastor Rhonda directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lenten Devotional with submissions from the congregation and others is now available. The theme is Hope. Contact us for a copy.
