Children's Message

Genesis 9:12-13

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:

I have set my bow in the cloud,

and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

The Church School took up a collection of canned soup and coins for the Center for Food Action . 

They collected lots of cans of soup (111 items were counted!), as shown in the picture - and they raised $422 in cash and coins!  

Good job Everyone!
Church School Children on a Mission
It is important to teach our youngest members the impact our help and donations can have on people in need. 
To show that "every little bit helps," our church school program has started a "Change for a Change"  campaign. 

The Offering Jar will be available at Fellowship Time to make a donation.  

Please help out the children and youth ... .by filling the jar!

Sunday, November 12th  
The Church Schoolsponsored a Food Drive for Center for Food Action.   
Based on their efforts, over 25 bags of food was donated to help feed our struggling neighbors.  
The folks at the Center for Food Action were really impressed with this effort by our young people.  Thank you, all!

Our Church is  active in supporting Church World Service year-round,  not only contributing as a church to the emergency outreaches, but also serving as a local collection depot for other churches in the area.
Church School Curriculum
The Church School curriculum for this fall is about the Old Testament.   Living in God's Light is the theme, with Old Testament lessons,  stories and parables, with extensive youth involvement. 

Older students learn about prophets and kings  and about how God's Word was spread. 

Younger children learn the simple lessons of faith and goodness that are taught through these stories.

We have introduced additional teaching tools, including music, CD players, children's Bibles and Bible-related crafts.
