THE PROMISES OF GOD

September 25, 2016

Sunday School is well under way, and all age levels are diving into some really interesting topics!

Our Pre-School/Kindergarteners are experiencing a “Rise and Shine on Noah’s Ark” unit with Miss Priscilla in the Winnie Williams Room

Elementary Students are working hard with Miss Jan and Miss Janet on scenery, sound effects and puppets for an upcoming puppet show.  On Oct. 2, we invite you to stay immediately after the 10:00 Worship Service to watch our Noah’s Ark Puppet Play in Cleveland Hall.  Students will attend the beginning of the worship service, and depart for classes after a Children’s Sermon.

Also, bring a photo of your pet(s) for a short Blessing of the Animals following the puppet play.

Many thanks to the visitors from the congregation who are coming up to enhance our Noah’s Ark unit by sharing with us each week about such topics as boat building, veterinary medicine, safari animals, and growing up as a ‘Rainbow Girl!’

Pencil in Oct. 30 for a special Noah’s Ark Coffee Hour/Bake Sale hosted by the Sunday School children as a finale to our unit.  Check the clipboard on the table at coffee hour to sign up to make an animal-themed snack for the bake sale.  Then, come hungry on Oct. 30 and find an item that someone else made, that you’d like to take home with you.  All proceeds from the bake sale will be donated to help support the training of service animals.

(PS:  Elementary students:  If you accidentally took your name tag home, please try to bring it back to Sunday School. Thanks!)

Middle Schoolers continue with their series on Conflict Resolution, Ethical Dilemmas and Faith with Steve Allenby and Bob Messer

High Schoolers  are enjoying Blueprint Discussions– Bible Study with relevant topics with Ken Thompson and Tom Coverdale.

September 18, 2016 

Our Preschool/Kindergarten class and Grades 1-4 got off to a great start with our Noah’s Ark unit last week.  We’re learning the story of Noah, while focusing on Noah as a faithful servant of God, as well as learning about God’s promises.

Elementary students worked on rain sticks for sound effects for their upcoming Noah’s Ark puppet play, which will happen immediately after the combined service on October 2.  They’ll be making some props as well as beautiful customized puppets of the characters in the Noah story.   Our students will also be practicing parts for the puppet show over the next two weeks.

Middle Schoolers put a coat of shiny white paint on our new puppet theater made by a very talented friend of Bob Messer’s, and began an interesting discussion about ethics, and decision making in different situations, based on what the Bible tells us.

 We continue to seek nursery care helpers for the 9:00 and 11:00 service as well as the 10:00 Sunday School hour. Please let us know if you can help. This valuable ministry provides an opportunity for the parents of our young families to worship with us.
