A note from the Children’s Department
All children will take some time to make angels during the Sunday School hour beginning in December. The angel project will take a couple of weeks. We won’t have Sunday School on December 17th or December 24th. There will be a church Christmas brunch on the 17th. We will have only one church service the morning of the 24th, no Sunday School, then three services Christmas eve.
All children of the church receive a wooden nativity piece each Christmas. There is a total of seven pieces; Baby Jesus in the manger, May and Joseph, a shepherd, a sheep, wisemen, a camel, and a donkey. This year each child will receive a donkey. We will start again in 2018 with Baby Jesus in the manger. We have extra pieces of everything, but the camel. We will make the extra nativity pieces available to any student who is in grade six or higher so that you may complete your set.
Children should have received an Advent calendar.
K and 1st Grade – Led by Naomi Clouser, Cheryl Lucas and Nancy Hartman. We meet in classroom #3,
5th and 6th Grade – Led by Linda Hosterman. We meet in the first room on the left.
Youth – Led by Lynn Wheeland and Jay & Shannon Reeder. We meet in the first room on the right.
Bible Explorers – Led by Bill Arnold – We call ourselves Explorers because we like to explore the Bible to discover and understand the words of the Bible for the people of those times and, hopefully, see that those words are relevant also for us in these present, and even future, times.
Relaxed and informal discussions (often over coffee and tea) occur as we move along. The various and voluntary viewpoints of class members enriches each one of us as we listen. Interest in the Bible (not age or experience) is all that is asked of participants. Hope that’s YOU! We meet in classroom #1.
Adult Discussion Group – Led by Bob Booz – Adults ages 55 and older (there is no need to bring your ID, we’ll take your word for it) gather to study from the Cokesbury International Studies guide. We enjoy a good laugh every now and again! Come join us Sunday mornings. We meet in classroom #2.
Adult Study Group – Led by Pastor Mark – Topics range from parenting to Bible study to religions of the world, with a focus on life applications. We meet in the fellowship hall.
