Kick-off Sunday/Blessing of the Backpacks.
KICK-OFF SUNDAY/BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS
We will kick off our fall programming this year on Sunday, September 15. We’ll plan a special meal and, perhaps, a special location. We’ll also bless the backpacks of our students and teachers returning to school. If you’d like to help plan this special day, please see Pastor Peter or Laurie Bohlke.
We are in need of volunteers who will be available to tend to the nursery on Sundays when we have small children present. Children are always welcome to stay in worship, but nursery is a nice alternative for parents.
CHILDREN & YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL
SCRC offers three opportunities, starting September 15th, for children and youth to learn and grow:
PreK-2nd: Children In Worship w/ Jane Coles (leave during worship) – This is a kid-centered worship experience that takes place in our education building. The goal is to use wonder and play to introduce Bible stories to our youngest members.
3rd-5th: Sunday School w/ Julie TeWinkle (leave during worship) – This is a more traditional educational setting where students get to talk about how the Bible relates to their everyday lives.
6th & up: Inter-generational “Way to Live” Circles w/ Pastor Peter (TBD) – This is a new program that we’ll be introducing. It is based on research by the Fuller Youth Institute that says youth benefit greatly from having five invested adults in their lives.
If you are able to volunteer to help Jane or Julie or would like to help Pastor Peter form circles, please speak with them.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
Pastor Peter has been receiving some inquiries about an adult Sunday School class following worship. Please leave your suggestions about topics or questions on the sheet in the back of the sanctuary.
