A Dedication of Teachers was held Sunday, July 28, with Pastor Karen commending the group for stepping forward and “being the church,” sharing their faith and love of the Lord with others at Sunday School.

The number of Sunday School classes has grown over the last several years. There will be eight different Sunday School classes beginning Sunday, August 4th. Using a rotation system for children and youth, classes will have three or four teachers who alternate teaching, either weekly, monthly, or however that team decides works best for them. This allows teachers to share their gifts and talents to teach while also allowing them to attend their own adult Sunday School class and / or travel as many of our congregation members are apt to do.

There is always room for others to participate, especially if you have not been contacted. If you feel this is a gift or talent or area you would like to explore, please do not hesitate! Call the church and let Karen know of your interest. Materials are furnished, help is available, no one is ever alone when working as a Sunday School teacher, and the rewards are tremendous. You share your knowledge and love of the Lord with others, and grow in your own knowledge and belief system as you work through the lessons each week.
