Our Summer Fun classrooms are going wonderfully! There’s only one left, which will be led by Jake and Lora on August 27th. This coming Sunday, August 20th, the nursery will be open but there is no program planned for the older children. They will remain with their parents in the sanctuary.
Also on August 27th we will have our annual Blessing of the Backpacks as a send-off for the new school year! Children should bring their backpacks to church with them and to the front of the sanctuary during the Children’s Sermon.
September 10th we will have an end-of-summer party during the Sunday School hour, and on September 17th our new Sunday School year will begin!
This year the classrooms will be grouped into the following ages and locations:
Little Ones: 0-3, will meet in the nursery each week. Drop off begins at 10:20.
Godly Play: 4-6, will meet in the Godly Play room after the Children’s Sermon each week. Prior to the Children’s Sermon they will sit in the sanctuary with their teacher. (Teachers are Cathy S. and Michelle B.)
Young Disciples: 7-10, will meet in Caton Hall after the Children’s Sermon all Sunday’s but Communion Sunday, which is held the first Sunday of each month. (Teachers are Jamie CH and Anne E.)
NEW CLASS, CX Youth: 11-up, will meet in the Butterfly Room every 2nd and 4th Sunday after the Children’s Sermon. They will walk to the Butterfly Room with their teacher. (Teachers are Monica RW and Irish S. If you are interested in volunteering to teach, please let me know ASAP).
**All children are to remain in their classrooms until picked up by a parent.**
There will be a Children’s Sermon each week for the children to enjoy. I hope this makes them feel an integral part of each Sunday’s worship time!
Please let me know if you have any questions about our upcoming “semester.” I can’t wait to get started!
