Sunday School News



Sunday school is back in session for fall! We encourage all children, their friends, and their parents to join us.


In September, Sunday school children studied the book of Genesis. The lessons were:

September 8: A Mighty Wonder – Creation (Genesis 1:1-2:3).

September 15: The Fall and a Promise – Fall into Sin (Genesis 3).

September 22: A New Beginning – Noah (Genesis 6:11-22; 7:11-24; 8:13-22).

September 29: A Call to Action – Abram (Genesis 12:1-9).


In October, the lessons will be from both Genesis and Exodus:

October 6: A Promising Dream – Jacob (Genesis 28:10-22)

October 13: Hope in Hardship – Joseph (Genesis 37; 45:1-10; 50:20)

October 20: Fiery Directions – Moses (Exodus 2:23-3:22)

October 27: The Egypt Exit – Exodus (Exodus 14)


We have a new format for Sunday School that is like the organizational structure we use for VBS. We use this schedule each week:

9:30-9:50 Opening (prayers, offering, and songs; all children together)

9:50-10:10 Bible lesson for the day

10:10-10:25 Craft

10:25-10:35 Snack and Bible lesson video

10:35-10:45 Closing

If you would like to help with crafts, snacks, or any other part of the schedule, you do not need to make a long-term commitment. Just let Randy or Jen Groth know that you are available to bring a snack, lead a craft, etc. for a given week.  At present, it would be great to have helpers with craft ideas that line up with the lessons shown in the schedule above. We hope that one of the benefits of the new format will be allowing more people have opportunities to enhance our children’s Sunday School experience, even if just coming to help out for a week or two.
