Milestone Celebration March 4th

March 4th from 9:45-10:45 A.M. in Stanford Chapel in the Cheek House

Families of the Second Grade Ephesians Group are invited to come join their children in the Chapel for a Milestone Celebration: Exploring the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.

Through a special 3 week unit of study offered in Sunday School, children have been exploring the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper as they give thanks, remember and celebrate the redemptive act offered by Jesus on the cross. These lessons now culminate with Sunday’s celebration with a special worship service with communion, led by Pastor Todd for children and their parents.

This milestone symbol is marked by a loaf of bread and a cup, reminding us that the meal we celebrate is in remembrance of Christ’s redeeming act on the cross.

Buddy Sunday – Dec. 3, 2017

On Dec 3, the older children visited the young groups of Sunday School. They shared a scripture then were paired up with a buddy to talk about the scripture and get to know each other. Great things happened when young children and older children met. Older children found the role of buddy leader to be fun to fulfill. Younger children were pleased to have the attention of an older child. Each child now has the name of another child to pray for and look for on Sunday mornings.

6th Grade visited with the 2nd Grade:

Kick-Off for Children’s Sunday School Groups is August 20

Welcome!   We hope the summer offered lots of opportunity to relax, travel, and renew.  We’re ready to begin our communities of belonging with our children each Sunday morning.  Groups age 3 through 6th grade study the Bible together and grow as disciples as they pray, serve, play, and care for each other.   Babies and toddlers have a fun time in our loving Nursery playing and hearing a Bible story, too.

The Sunday School hour for children is 9:45-10:45 A.M.   Families will receive an e-mail with their child’s group and room assignment prior to August 20.   We ask that parents escort their children to their group on this Kick-Off day and offer a hello/thanks to the great group of leaders who will be journeying with your child for the next 10 months.

Starting at 10:00 A.M. we are hosting a breakfast for parents in Courtenay Hall.   You’ll have time to visit with friends, make new friends, and enjoy Kim’s great cooking.

Relationships matter!  

Faith is caught more than it is taught.
