The first Sunday in April marked the beginning of our new Sunday School. On the previous Saturday, Lolly had lovingly prepared the nursery for this. Her efforts were rewarded by a rather attentive little crowd: Joe Ruiz, Madeline Nonestied and Andy Epstein formed the first class.
The teaching team consists of Heather, Lolly, and Fawn with Lauren as advisor and me in the background. The sessions are not long, just about 30 minutes. They include a story and a snack part. We hope that the children become familiar in this way with the church’s worship life. Sunday morning worship also entails a spoken part and the Lord’s Supper.
As I sat in with the first session, I was amazed how few prompts the children required to be quiet. Lolly’s skillful presentation of the story fascinated them in such a way that they began participating all by themselves. What a great way of spreading the gospel!
The next sessions will take place at 10:00 AM on Sunday, May 4 with Heather teaching, and Sunday, June 1 with Fawn teaching. Parents are welcome to sit in and observe. Always remember, Sunday School is no less important than regular school during the week.
