Welcome to O.W.L. Sunday School 2015-201.Our theme is Only With Love
Parent Participation in Sunday School: Building Our Children’s Faith Together!
We would love to have you join our team of Jesse Lee Guiding Lights!.
We are providing opportunities for you to be involved in our Sunday School program. Research tells us that when parents are involved in their children’s education, the children learn better, feel more motivated, and develop a stronger faith. I personally experienced tremendous spiritual growth and joy by helping with the Sunday School program as my children were growing up. I trust you will find this to be a rewarding experience as well.What you need to know:We encourage parents to attend Sunday School at your preferred service, either 9:00 or 11:00 at least twice a semester. On your chosen days, you will be invited to a classroom (not necessarily in your own child’s class) to observe and participate at whatever level you are comfortable. Signup by contacting Ms. Kerry at firstname.lastname@example.org.Sunday School classes for children ages 3 through 5th grade are held during the 9:00 and 11:00 am sanctuary worship services.
Nursery care is provided for infants through 3 years old in the nursery located in the church building from 9am through 12:15pm.
Children who turn 3 years old by December 31st of this year are welcome in the preschool Sunday School class.
At the 9:00 and 11:00 sanctuary services, after the “Children’s Moment”, the Sunday School children will be escorted to their Sunday School classes. Please pick up your children directly after the worship service ends. You are invited to come as a family to coffee hour in the narthex.
Please feel free to email me or give me a call, any time you have questions, concerns or suggestions. I welcome the opportunity to pray for any concerns you may have. We have support networks for meals, rides and prayer in times of crisis. Don't hesitate to reach out. Jesus calls us to live in community. Together we can raise healthy, caring, competent faith-filled kids!
