Sunday School will look a little different this year, as we have made the decision to do Sunday School at home to begin our year together. Things may change, but for right now, we feel it's safest that you do Sunday School lessons as a family in the comfort of your own home.
Throughout the Sunday School year (as weather permits), families are invited to gather for 10 minutes after worship each Sunday to talk about the theme of the day and do some music & movement with Becky before going home to do the lesson. I know this year is different in so many ways, but my hope is that we can find time each Sunday to nourish our faith by gathering together in a safe way and learning about new Bible stories together.
If we do make it back in the classroom this year, our Sunday School teachers will be:
PreK: Kelley Kennedy
Kinder: Judy Glesne
1st-2nd: Julie Noteman
3rd-5th: Kelsey Ellis
This year, we are using the "God's Story At Home" curriculum through Spirit & Truth Publishing. It works beautifully alongside our narrative lectionary, so the same stories talked about in worship will also be talked about at home. My plan is to post the lesson in our Holy Cross Faith Formation Facebook group every Friday. If you are not on Facebook, please email me and I will make a note to email you the lesson each week!
After worship on September 13, we are asking families with Preschoolers - 5th graders to hang out for about 10-15 minutes for some FUN as we kick off a new year. We will be outside (socially distanced) and will quickly meet our teachers, talk about the curriculum, grab an At Home Sunday School goodie bag, and do some music & movement with Becky!
Again this year, we are pairing up our children with caring adults in our congregation. Our goal is that they get to know one another and pray for each other througout the school year. Maybe this is through snail mail, waving to each other at Parking Lot Worship, or a zoom chat between the two families. We hope that this program can create long lasting relationships in our congregation! If you are interested in being a Prayer Partner for one of our young people, please email me and I will get you on our list!
