Dear Sunday School Families,
Welcome to the first edition of St. Stephen's
Sunday School News! This monthly email will be your digital source for information about upcoming events, as well as the weekly "Family Page" that is part of our Sparkhouse Digital curriculum.
Hopefully, you will use the "Family Page" to follow up with your children about what they learned in Sunday School. While we are thrilled that you trust us to take part in your children's Christian formation, the reality is that we cannot do it alone. Children who have regular opportunities to talk about God and faith at home, as well as in church, are more likely to make faith a regular part of their lives well into adulthood. If you or your children have any questions or simply want to talk more about what they are learning, please talk to me. Almost nothing makes me happier than talking to children about God and faith - in part because I love children and young people in church, in part because I probably learn as much from them as they do from me!
For those weeks when getting to church and Sunday School is impossible, please take a few minutes to read the stories for the week with your children. If you did not receive the Bible we have for your child, please ask. I have them in the office.
Peace & Blessings,
