Exciting Education News for Young and Old Alike!!!
For our children, yes, it will soon be “back to school” and football season and autumn and pumpkins and that means that our regular Sunday School program will kick off too. This school year our Sunday School theme is “Live a life of love” and throughout the year the children will be reminded that they are loved by God and that Jesus taught us to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves”.
We are in need of Sunday School leaders. Please prayerfully consider offering your time to this very important ministry. Without the volunteers, there is no program for the children. All work is done for you in advance and lessons can be emailed or provided to you at least a month at a time. The more volunteers we have, the better for us to employ “team” teaching and lessen the time commitment for each volunteer. See Heather Costantino with any questions or to sign up!!
