November Sunday School News

November will be an exciting month for children preparing for the holiday season. The emphasis will be on giving, and on loving all as Jesus loves us. We will continue Sunday school lessons from the Episcopal curriculum “Weaving God’s Promises.” Children will begin at 10:15 am exploring lessons from the liturgical calendar, and then enter age-breakout classrooms to learn Jesus’ love for them and how to “weave” the stories they hear into their own lives. Godly Play lessons will also lovingly teach children Jesus’ love for them and how we can apply love inside the church and outward to the community.
