Children

We have finally turned the page on the unprecedented year of 2020 and let’s pray that the new year brings an end to the pandemic and that we will be able to resume “live” Sunday School at some point in the first half of the year.  In the meantime, we are continuing to hold “virtual Saturday School” classes for the children.  They are excited to see their teachers and friends so we are increasing the classes for the older children to twice a month (2nd & 4th Saturdays) while keeping the younger children at once a month (3rd Saturday).  All classes are via Zoom at 10 AM.  Specific info will be sent out to the families via e-mail and we hope to have even more kids join us.  Many thanks to the teachers for volunteering their time to keep the children engaged in learning about Jesus and his teachings. 

 I continue to send weekly e-mails with some puzzles/coloring sheets for the children to work on. We are hoping to showcase some pictures of their work in the monthly Message so the congregation can enjoy. 

Thank you to all of the children and their parents for recording their parts in the “virtual” children’s Christmas pageant that was shown as part of the 12/20 zoom church services.  The kids did a great job and received rave reviews and everyone was happy to see their smiling faces and hear their enthusiastic voices!  Special thanks to Matt Damrow for putting the recordings together into one video.

 

As we continue to cope with the COVID-19 crisis, the Sunday School staff want to help the children to learn about Jesus and to grow in their faith.  If you have any ideas of how we can continue this mission, please reach out to me.  We welcome all volunteers and suggestions.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.  You can reach me directly  by e-mail at epting.susan@gmail.com.

Hope to see you all soon!  Have a Happy, Healthy, and Blessed New Year! Please remember that masks and social distancing do work and get the vaccine when you are eligible.  We will get through this together!

God Bless, Sue Epting
