Children

Spring is here and with it comes renewed hope that we can soon begin to put this pandemic behind us as more and more people are vaccinated.  We hope to resume Sunday School “in person” in September but for the rest of this school year, we will continue to hold the “Saturday School” classes.  The sessions are held twice a month for those in grades 3 through 7 and once a month for the Pre-K through 2nd graders. If your child has not yet joined one of the calls, please consider doing so as we would love to see everyone and “the more, the merrier!”  The kids are all engaged and it’s clear that they enjoy connecting with their classmates and teachers even though it’s via a zoom call.  The May dates are as follows:

May 8 & May 22

Grades 3 through 7

May 15 

 Pre-K through 2 grade

 

Hopefully, next school year we will be able to resume the fun activities and special events that our Sunday School is known for.  I long for another wonderful Christmas pageant experience for everyone in December!  Most importantly, the children need to see their teachers and friends “in person” again so that we can foster their growth in their faith.

 

I continue to send out weekly updates with activities for the children and we have received some nice photos of the work they have done.  We will continue to publish their pictures in The Message as we receive them.

 

It is very possible that we will need to recruit some more teachers and helpers for our Sunday School for next year.  Please think about volunteering to join the staff for September.  It doesn’t require that much work and it is so much fun to work with the children and watch as they learn about Jesus and his teachings.  I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about the role.  The more help we have, the easier it is for everyone.

 

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.  You can reach me directly via phone at 914-715-9546 or by e-mail at

God Bless and stay safe,
