2016 Next Gen header
Dear families,

Spring is finally here! The flowers are busting open and so are our calendars. May is packed with moving-on ceremonies and end-of-year celebrations (whew...!). This coming Sunday is our last Sunday of regular church school and Worship Explorers. The following Sunday, May 20, we move to the summer schedule. Worship will take place at 10:00 AM. Summer church school classes are available for Preschoolers (room 07) and Kindergarten-Grade Two (room 08). We need help to staff the summer sessions. Keep reading for more details.

But MOST IMPORTANTLY, please join me in thanking our remarkable, committed, energetic, patient, creative, loving, awe-inspiring group of Church School teachers. Each week they prepare lessons, assemble crafts, plan activities and minister to your children. Our church thrives because of their commitment. Our teachers  ensure, one week and one story at a time, that the Gospel is preached.

Then we, your people, 
the ones you love and care for,
will thank you over and over and over.
We'll tell everyone we meet
how wonderful you are, 
how praiseworthy you are!
Psalm 79:13 (The Message)

AMEN!
