I hope everyone had a nice summer enjoying warm temperatures and the longer days. As we turn the calendar to a new month, I look forward to seeing our SUM children and hearing about their summer adventures!
Pre k/elementary age children start the Church School rotation learning about people who made a difference in the Bible: Deborah, Jeremiah, and the woman at the well. Each of these people of faith made a difference in their own time. As our children grow in their faith, we hope they can make an impact in God’s Kingdom.
Our junior youth (6th– 8th grades) will start the year off reading Exodus 1:8-22. The passage is about the Israelites asking, “Who are we” and “Who is God.” The story reminds all of us that even in challenging times, God hears us, is with us, and encourages us daily to be our best.
The Children’s Ministry is looking for volunteers to teach or support on Sundays. Please consider helping from time to time. Please see me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
