Kids’ Sunday school

Kids Sunday school, Fall/Winter 2023
Worship & Wonder for K-3rd grade meets every Sunday, using the Godly Play storytelling model.
NEW this Fall: Engage and Explore class (for 4th-6th grade) meets about every other Sunday right now. We’d like to expand the number of Sundays they meet by adding more volunteer teachers in January. The weeks there is no class for 4-6th grade, the kids will remain in the worship service with their family. (Some quiet activity materials will be on hand for use in their seats.) Here’s the list of remaining dates this class will meet through 2023: 11/12, 11/19, 12/3, 12/17.

We’ll have an Advent Devotional available at the end of November. It’s “Advent in Full Color” which offers poems, meditations, scripture readings and practices for use alone or with your family. In addition, the “Full Color” comes into play because it’s a coloring book for YOU to color. You can pick up a printed copy starting on November 26, or ask that a digital copy be emailed to you for printing at home. Donations will be accepted to cover the cost.
