Making Memories: Past, Present, and Future
Send pictures of your children and family participating in Sunday School and/or their completed projects to email@example.com
As people of God, we are called to grow each day in the faith we share.
This year's beginning will look different than most Sunday School years, but the teachers and I are looking forward to connecting and leading the children as well as supporting the parents. There are three ways that we will be supporting parents as they guide their children on their faith journey.
1) First, Sunday School begins at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, September 20th. We will be meeting each week virtually during the school year and I will email parents log in information so the children participate. Check your email for more information about registering for Sunday School for this fall. Let me know if you did not receive any information or have trouble logging on.
2) Second, there will be a "Faith At Home" lesson, which is a self-standing lesson specifically designed for parents to use at home with their children.
3) Third, there will be a coloring page, leader guide, and video from Whirl Sunday School, which will be used in the weekly virtual Sunday School class. Parents can use these resources as a guide to talk to their children about the highlighted story.
Both the Faith At Home and Whirl lessons will be posted by each Thursday so that parents can use the resources at a time that makes the most sense for their children and family, especially in case a family decides they need a screen time break and will not be at Sunday School that week. The lessons are posted at the bottom of the page. Parents will need to log in/create a log in to see these resources due to copyright laws. If you have trouble with the log in, please let me know so I can help troubleshoot the problem.
Weekly Whirl Lesson
Our first lesson this fall (for 9/20) is "Adam and Eve," which is based on Genesis 2:4-25, 3:1-24. This lesson discusses making good choices including talking about long-term seen or unseen consequences. It will stress that God loves us even though we sometimes make bad choices and will always be there for us.
Connect and Serve
With many of us still at home much of the time, especially the elderly, and with many service opportunities limited because of the pandemic, I am offering a new way for families to serve and live out their faith while making connections with people that may need some extra love and connections. Families will be given the name of someone and then once a month (or more if their family is able and desires) will send pictures, cards, letters or maybe call to check in to see how that person is doing. Email Melissa Groen if your family would like to participate.
Close in prayer:
As school and the church program year begins and our lives become busier,
we pray for your peace in our hearts and minds.
Fill us all with your Holy Spirit and guide us to be good examples of your love in this world.
