EDUCATION
Sunday School starts September 8, 2019 and is available for kids ages 4 through 4th grade. To ensure we have enough supplies and volunteers, we ask that you fill out a registration form for your child and return to the church office. Registration forms can be downloaded here or found in the Narthex. 

We are looking for volunteers to help facilitate the classes on Sunday mornings. We will have sign ups in the near future for specific dates. However, if you are available for our first class on September 8th, please contact
sundayschool@sharingchristslove.org  and indicate your availability. 

Additionally, we are looking for guest readers to read the bible story to the kids at the beginning of each class. We are encouraging those without kids in the classes to participate as a way to engage the kids with others in the congregation. This would be a 10 to 15 minute commitment at the beginning of the class. If you are interested in reading, please contact Katie or Chris with your availability or with any questions you may have. 

Also, this year we are using the Spark Children's Bible to teach from. We will be ordering a few to be used in classes and are opening up ordering to anyone who wants a bible. The cost is $19.99 per bible. Order forms can be found here or in the Narthex and are due back by September 15, 2019.

Please contact Chris Clark or Katie Fetterly with any questions.
