We will be kicking off our Sunday School year after worship on Sunday, September 8th with Family Fun Fest on Rally Day! This all free event will include lunch, games, goats and a bounce house! For more details click here.
Our first day of Sunday School will be on Sunday, September 15th at 9:45 a.m. This year, we will have two classes: Pre-k through 1st grade, who will be using the Deep Blue Curriculum; and 2nd through 5th grade, who will be introduced to our new curriculum, The Action Bible. The Action Bible presents the most action-packed bible stories in a graphic novel format.
We would like to give a special thank you to all those who so quickly volunteered to purchase an Action Bible for each of our students! We made this special request during the announcements at church last Sunday and by the time we were through with the Passing of the Peace, our needs were met with overwhelming generosity from our congregation! Thank you so much for your support!
This year’s Sunday School class mission focuses on “Building Safe and Supportive Spaces”. We will be raising funds for The Night Ministry, a Chicago-based organization that works to provide housing, health care and human connection for those who are struggling with poverty and homelessness – regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, or socioeconomic status. Their Youth Outreach Team focuses on providing safe housing and resources for youth in Chicago’s Lakeview area through weekly visits at the Outreach Team Van, and an overnight shelter called “The Crib”. We will tell you more about this ministry throughout the year!
We are looking forward to another exciting year of growing, learning, loving and serving!
