Sunday School
Beginning September 3rd, 2017 Sunday School for age 3 through grade 5 will begin. The children will beet together as they study Bible stories for the month.  The stories will be presented in various ways, such as costumes/readers' theater/magic rings similar to Vacation Bible School.  The second week, September 10th will be crafts related to the stories. The third week, September 17th, will be science experiements that relate to the stories, and the fourth week, September 24th will be cooking/snacks that relate to the stories.

Ms. Boese will be leading the groups during the month of September, and she will need helpers each Sunday.

We are also planning to begin Children's Sunday school with singing for 9:45 to 10:00 am with music related to the stories of the month.

"Kids 4 Christ" will meet on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.  This program is for ages 3 years through grade 5. They will focus on learning about characters from our Sunday school lessons.  This is an active time with crafts, science, social science, and snacks.  Ms. Boese and Ms. Olson welcome anyone who would like to help with this ministry.

Grace & Peace,
Angela Boese,
Director of Children's Ministries
