Gathering In God’s House

church school

We have decided to have online Zoom meetings for the church school.  Each Sunday at 9 am your children will be invited to attend an online version of church school.  While we can’t be together physically, we will be together virtually.  This online meeting will still have some of your child’s favorite parts of church school such as joys and concerns and most importantly friends.  I am going to be working together with Pastor Ray to sync our lessons with his sermon topic for the week.  This allows the children to be learning about a similar theme in a child-friendly way at 9:00 am and then be able to follow along with their families to the church service which is posted online at 9:30 am.  We will be having the teachers record some weekly arts and crafts and other lessons so your child will still be able to see all of the familiar faces that they love and miss. 

And when Esau lifted up his eyes and saw the women and children, he said, “Who are these with you?” Jacob said,  “These are the children God has graciously given your servant”. Genesis 33:5

I will be gathering supplies and making up church bags ahead of time. They will be in a waterproof sealed bin outside of the side entrance to the church.  You will be able to drive by and get the bags for your child at any point during the week which will have the items in it for Sunday’s lesson.  These bags will include enough materials for two weeks to make your trips less frequent.  Please remember to maintain the 6-foot social distancing rule when picking up the bags and please wear a mask and gloves.  I will check in multiple times a week to make sure the bin is stocked and will be sanitizing the bin and lid.  There will also be some papers with word games so that your kiddos have to pay attention and listen carefully to the sermon so that they can get the clues to fill out their sheets.  This is meant to be a fun activity to help us all stay in touch while worshipping “together-separately.”  Please do not stress if you can’t make every      Sunday or your child wants to do the sermon one week and not the zoom meeting.  This is all new to all of us and we will figure it out together.  

If you are a parent or caregiver and have not already joined the church school CE page on Facebook, please request to do so.  This page has the most updated info for our church school kids.  If you are not on Facebook then feel free to send me an email and I will add you to an email only list.

Our online registration for church school will be opening September 13 and our lessons are set to start September 20th.  Our theme for the year will be “We walk by faith and not by sight”.  The link for registration will be posted on the CE Facebook page. If you would prefer to fill out a paper copy, I can mail one to you, please reach out for one. The first lessons will be available to pick up at the church on  September 13 and will consist of the lesson plans for September 20 and September 27.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!! It’s going to be a different year but I have every confidence that   together we will make it amazing!!
