CHURCH SCHOOL CHALKBOARD ~ May 2013
On the first Sunday in May, we will begin the story of Jonah. This story will teach the children that they cannot hide from God. God called upon Jonah to do a very difficult thing – go to his enemies and tell them about God. Jonah tried hard not to do what God wanted and yet God persisted. God saw the value in not only Johan’s life but in the lives of his enemies. Jonah learns that judgment belongs to God and God alone. God chooses to extend grace to all people – people have to just be willing to accept it. “Deliverance belongs to the Lord”. (Jonah 2:9)
Upcoming Dates to Note:
- Sunday, May 12th will be our Mother’s Day Group Event. A family activity will take place in the Fellowship Hall, all are welcome to attend with their children. There will be no church school.
- Sunday, June 2 will be the last day of Church School Classes for this school year. The 3rd and 4th graders who have completed Bible Skills Classes will receive their own Bibles during the Children’s Sunday Celebration worship service.
- Sunday, June 9th will be our special Children’s Sunday Celebration. The children will help lead the worship services on this day. It promises to be a wonderful closing celebration of our school year! We look forward to having you join us.
In closing, we are still actively seeking to fill positions for the 2013-2014 Church School Year. We hope that you’ll carefully consider sharing your faith and talents with our children by volunteering to serve on our staff!
