This Sunday, we celebrate the educational ministries of the church. If you have not registered your child for Sunday School, please join us this Sunday. We will bless Bibles, children and teachers and launch another year. There was a time not so long ago when you could count on the culture to raise your child into a Christian. It is not so anymore. It takes dedicated parents, a community and a willingness to be a bit different than the culture. We aim to teach children that God loves them and is as close as their next breath. We hope they leave each year filled with Bible stories to sustain them all their days, and we strive to teach practices of prayer, mercy, outreach to those in need, generosity and peace.
It does, though, take each one of you to do this. Please come committed to being a support to parents and a role model to children. Please also give thanks for our staff of dedicated teachers. We have a wonderful Sunday School program thanks to so many that work quietly behind the scenes.
Peace, Rev. Beth
