Sunday, Feb. 4th-Souper Bowl Sunday

The Church School will once again be taking up a collection of canned soup for the Center for Food Action. 

Don't forget to bring your favorite and most filling cans of soup.  Or other nourishing non-perishables.    The children and youth of our church hope to help feed and  warm up the hungry on these cold days.
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.  

Our first offering  will be collected for the Center for Food Action.

Please help out the children and youth ... and the hungry of Bergen filling the jar!

Mid-December Update - We're almost to $100!  Thanks to all who contributed. 
Collection continues through Feb. 4th
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.
