CHILDREN & YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
The PRESCHOOL CLASS for 3, 4, and 5 year old's are being introduced to “God’s Big Story” based on stories from Genesis through Acts. Teachers are Chris Watkins and Marcia Logan. This class is in the Bethlehem room in the east hall of the main floor.
The ELEMENTARY class with teachers Sharon Bowman, Jason Mayo, and Marty Melcher is learning from the “Marvel” series of lessons. This study presents Bible stories at a more mature level than for the younger children. The themes present God’s Love, Mercy, the Holy Spirit’s Power, the Holy Sprit’s Work, God’s New Beginnings and God’s Protection. This class meets downstairs in the Bethany room.
Our MIDDLE SCHOOL class is learning from the theme of “Dive”. The units are based on biblical stories, Reformed teaching, and faith habits. The teachers are Rainy Birch and Susan Fisher, meeting downstairs in the Jericho room.
The HIGH SCHOOL class is using two book resources this year. The “Believe It” study will help teens grow spiritually by understanding basic tenants they need to know about their faith and how they are relevant to their faith. The study of “No Easy Answers” will help teens make good decisions in this anything goes world. They will explore the Ten Commandments and examine real life moral problems and ethical dilemmas. This class meets upstairs.
CHILDREN & YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
We have learned of the great time our High School kids have at Tall Timber. The kids not only experience unique activities, they experience spiritual growth. All kids who have attended before have received brochures and know all the details of registering for camp.
PARENTS of all school age children, are you aware there are sessions for all school age kids. They do not need to wait until High School for these memorable opportunities.
For ELEMENTARY STUDENTS there are three short sessions. July 11-13 for those entering grade 1-3; July 8-11 for those entering grade 2-5; and July 22- 26 for those entering grade 4-6.
MIDDLE SCHOOL/Junior High youth have a choice between two sessions. Those entering grades 6-9 can chose between July 1-6 and July 15-20.
For HIGH SCHOOL, entering grades 9-12 have several choices listed in the brochure and on line. NEED A BROCHURE? THERE ARE SOME ON THE TABLE OUTSIDE THE OFFICE, or contact Rosalie Doty.
