SCHOOL YEAR SUNDAY SCHOOL
Our school year Sunday School will resume on August 12th. We will have something for everyone from birth through 5th grade. Here’s the rundown:
The Toddler Class: This class meets in the nursery with Debbie Johnson teaching our 2 and unders. They will hear the Bible story, get creative with coloring, have a snack, and enjoy some play time together.
The Matthew Class: This class meets in room 13 with Victoria Herriott and Minnie Newman. They explore lessons based on The Beginner’s Bible. They hear the story and get creative with activities, games, and crafts based on the lesson. Each child uses their assigned copy of The Beginner’s Bible throughout their time in this class and then gets to take their copy of The Beginner’s Bible home with them when they move on to the Mark Class.
The Mark Class: This class meets in room 6 with Jim and Diana Styles. They hear the Bible story and then explore it further through a special craft. This is a very hands on class with special attention to not only hearing and visualizing the Bible but also creating and interacting with it.
The Luke Class: This class begins in room 8 with our Superbook Academy large group time. They join “Chris, Joy, and Gizmo” as they learn how to deal with every day issues through a trip back in time with the “Superbook.” (It’s a high tech time traveling Bible, folks.) The Luke class then moves to room 5 for some small group time with activities, games, and crafts. The Luke class is taught by Valerie and Paul Christian.
The John Class: This class also begins in room 8 with our Superbook Academy large group time. They move to room 2 for small group where they dig deeper into the Bible with Bible lookups, scripture memory, Biblical principles exploration, and a few games and activities mixed in. The John Class is taught by Albert and Nita Herrington.
SAINTS ALIVE CHILDREN’S CHOIR
The Saints Alive Children’s Choir will resume on August 19th in room 8. Choir begins at 9:45am under the direction of Albert Herrington. The choir will be working towards its first appearance in worship on October 21st. Our choir kids work very hard learning to be worship leaders through song. Albert is a fantastic director and the kids have a great time. Kids ages 3 through 5th grade are welcome!
Children’s Church will resume on August 19th at 9:00am every Sunday. Children are escorted from the sanctuary following the children’s message in the early service. They meet in room 8 for a time of learning what’s in the Bible and what it means to be a Christian and a disciple of Jesus Christ. This fantastic time for children is led by Nita Herrington and her team of most excellent story tellers like Debbie Sullivan, Rick Heeth, Steven Herriott, and Joan Morehead. We would love to add some more story tellers to the list so drop by one Sunday morning and listen in. You might feel led to join us!
