Sunday School Announcements:
Group 1 (8:30 am worship) starting in Jan! Due to high attendance during Group 1, we have split into 3 classes:
Pre-K (3-year-olds, 4-year-olds, and Kindergarteners)
Younger Elementary (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Graders)
Older Elementary (4th, 5th, and 6th Graders)
THANK YOU to Arathi Fishwild and Patrick Parish, who have agreed to be the lead teachers for the Pre-K class during Group 1!
Group 2 (9:30mam) continues without changes at this time
THANK YOU to everyone that has already signed up to help as a Sunday School helper!
Help Needed: We now have only THREE spots to fill! Assistants needed for Younger kids at 9:30 (Group 2) on April 16; and the younger and older kids at 8:30 (Group 1) on April 30. If you have not filled in yet, now is the time! Link to sign up: Assistant TEACHERS Jan to May – Google Docs or sign up on the Sunday School bulletin board, or contact Wendy Parsons: firstname.lastname@example.org (H) 608-424-0270 (C) 608-334-5228
REMINDER: No Sunday School on Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday!
COMMUNION INSTRUCTION: Email went out to all 3rd-6th grade families that registered for Sunday School. Signup sheet & info is on the Sunday School bulletin board, or click this link: Sign Up Communion Instruction – Google Docs
Blessing: Ask your child if they recall the blessing of the day! They may or may not remember what it was – but you can find it on the white board at the bottom of the stairs to the lower level and also on the Sunday School bulletin board up stairs. Asking your kids to share the blessing with your family is a great way to start a conversation about what the Sunday School lesson was all about!
COMMUNION INSTRUCTION: All 3rd, 4th, 5th, & 6th graders are invited to participate in this Milestone! Sixth graders that missed any part of communion instruction in 2020 due to the pandemic starting (ie: making a chalice, communion instruction, or recognition of a milestone in Worship), are also invited to join us for the part they had missed out on.
