In order for our new model of Sunday School to be successful, we need people to lead these rotations. If you love art projects, sign up for an art rotations or all of them! Or if you love science, sign up for those. It's a commitment, but a commitment on your terms and schedules. This is a way to fulfill your promises that you made while each of these little ones were baptized.

To see the dates and the topics, we have a sign up in the narthex. If you'd like more information, either call the office or send Jenny an email.

There are supplies that we need for the year as well - an Amazon wish list has been created! https://a.co/1OA0pMO
