It’s that time again – time to welcome back the children and youth of Zion Sunday School!
I’m excited to be your Christian Education Director and to have the pleasure of teaching the Grade 4-6 class. If you have an interest in being part of the Sunday School ministry I would love to sit down and chat with you.
A new Sunday School season begins Sunday September 9, starting with a Commissioning service during morning worship. Registration forms will be given out that day, or you can register early by picking up a form from Dianne or myself. We are looking forward to exploring God’s Big Picture together this year.
We are blessed to have a mixture of old and new faces in the Sunday School this year. Both Silvia Beaton (teacher) and Shaeya Thibodeau (assistant) are returning to the Pre – K class. The Grade 1-3 class will be taught by newcomers Amanda Webster (teacher), with Faith Gray and Mia Josey (assistant). Grade 4-6 will be taught by Glynis Faith (teacher) and Kelley MacQueen (assistant). Ian Larter is returning to continue sharing the Gospel with Grades 7-9.
This year Dominic MacMillan is joining the Sunday School as music director, and I have a hunch he will have your children singing all 66 books of the Bible before the Sunday School year is completed! Melissa Josey and Laurie Gillespie will serve as substitute teachers, and I look forward to a few others joining in this wonderful ministry. Please join me in welcoming and thanking all our terrific volunteers.
Our new curriculum is called, “God’s Big Picture” and it uses Art, Object Lessons, Skits, Music and Bible Skill Activities to teach the children basic Bible skills and how each of the Bible stories is connected into one big story – God’s Big Story – a story that they themselves are an important part of.
The children will lead three worship services throughout the year: Nov 25th, Feb 24th, and June 16th, plus they may be joining the congregation for a special celebration day this year.
Sunday School will start on Sept 9th, beginning with a special Commissioning Service during the Children’s Time. Children will be introduced to their classrooms and the new material. We will also be taking individual pictures to make a Sunday School family wall. Please fill in the Sunday School registration form as quickly as possible, including the consent form for taking and/or displaying your child’s photo.
I look forward to working with you and your child(ren) throughout the year, and I will be praying for each of our Sunday School children and their families. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
