Our committee met September 4, 2016. We discussed and prepared for our new Sunday School year and Rally Day.
Bear Creek camp was a great success in August and we will definitely have it next year. We have $1000.00 already earmarked for next year’s bear Creek camp.
We celebrated Sunday School Rally Day September 11th with a carnival for our congregation and community. Everyone had a great time. Thanks to all for your help.
We will be using Spark material this year for the Sunday School. This material will provide more classroom time for our students and teachers.
All Sunday School teachers are returning this year except for Christina Hagan and Jamie Ahner. We thank them for the years they dedicated to our children.
Lisa Bair will be teaching Confirmation and Hanna Hine has joined us as a Sunday School helper in Pre-K and Kindergarten with Jill. Dave Shoup will be leading the Adult class.
