Christian Education

sunday school classes for everyone

Session approved the upcoming Sunday class schedule to be September 9th to June 9th. Childcare through our High school class all use the curriculum of Faith Alive resources from the Reformed Church of North America.

As our children grow we are making class changes and being flexible in class groupings. This fall we will continue to have our Childcare program during worship services. Childcare is moving into the cheery yellow room next to where it has been. Coordinator Dolly Hutchings organizes the care teams for each Sunday.

The Elementary class will be inclusive of Kindergarten through 6th grade using the concept of a "One Room School" with a team of teachers and creative curriculum for this broad age span. This class will move into the redecorated room at the end of the east hall. Teachers are Chris Watkins, Sharon Bowman, and Marty Melcher. We hope to add a man to this team as children benefit from having both men and women as teachers.

The High School class will continue to be in their room on the second floor. Class members, with the guidance of teachers Amy Miller and Jason Mayo, have selected book studies that help guide today's Christian youth to manage the issues they face.

The Adult Sunday class will continue to meet upstairs this year. The team of Bruce Emery and Todd Haworth will lead the class in a study of the Gospel of John.

Naomi Circle

NAOMI CIRCLE STARTING
Monday, September 10 at 1:00 in the Fellowship Hall
ALL ladies are invited and welcome to join us. Church membership and/or attendance is not required. Naomi Circle is a long-standing bible study group of our church. We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at the church or in homes.
This year's study is: "God's Promise: I Am with You." Taking on a nine-lesson journey through scripture to consider how God's promise ("I will be with you"/"I am with you") speaks to our circumstances, as individuals and a community. We will also consider Jesus' own promise of presence to his followers as he sends us into this world. As we explore the many facets of this most profound gift, we will ask, how does God's promise of presence change us and the way we live?
To sign up or for more information, call Bridget Edgington at 360-775-0401.
