Christian Ed Notes (September 2010)

Christian Education...

Welcome back to Sunday school!  It seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating Christian Education Sunday together.  Fall is a wonderful time of new beginnings with new Sunday school classes and new friends.  It is also a great time to enjoy the cooler days and evenings and the wonder of the changing leaves.  God paints the trees with a wide array of colors and fills the air with smells of the season.

Sunday school:

Sunday school starts on Sunday, September 12, 2010 with two services at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM with rally day.  We are excited to begin the new school year growing and learning together. We are still looking for one individual to team-teach with each of the following class: 8:30 AM: 4th/5th grade.  We are also looking for volunteers to substitute teach at either service.

Thank you to all that have already volunteered to teach or substitute.  Without the wonderful volunteers, the program would not be possible.

Sunday school is for children age four through senior in high school.  If you child turns four during the school year, they can be transitioned to Sunday school at that time.  They do not need to wait until next year to join the program.  Sunday school registration forms are available in the church office, so that you may register your child early for Sunday school.  It will expedite the registration process and give you time to relax during fellowship time.  Remember that forms need to be complete for nursery children as well.

Sunday school reminders:

1. Sunday school meets every Sunday of the month.

2. First Sunday of the month, the 3rd through 12th grade children will start in their classrooms and return to church for Communion.

Attendance Book Awards:

We recognize those children who have missed three or less days of Sunday school from September through June with book awards.  If your child attends another church service or Sunday school on any Sunday, please bring me proof of attendance for credit towards attendance.  I have attendance cards that you can take with you to have the church complete when you worship with them.  You can also bring me a copy of the bulletin or a note signed by the Sunday school teacher noting your attendance.  If you have any questions as to what qualifies as attendance, please see or e-mail me at sbennion at .

Secret Pal Reveal:

Secret pal reveal will be held during the coffee hour at 9:30 AM on October 3rd.  If you usually come to the second service, please come early for fellowship time after the first service.  This time will make it easier for members and youth at both services. As we mingle for coffee hour, the children will find out the identity of their secret pal.  It is exciting to meet your special friend.


Julie Wojkowski and Nancy MacLean are still looking for volunteers to work in the nursery at the 8:30 and 10:30 AM services through out the school year.  Please consider working with our youngest church members and sign up for a Sunday during each month or consider being a substitute.

In God’s love,
