Sunday School  Each Sunday the Kindergarten through 5th graders will begin with an Opening time in the music room at 10:30 a.m. where they will sing songs and get any announcements.  On the first Sunday of the month, we will also recognize birthdays for the month with special birthday cookies!  (Thank you Sandy Powers!)  At 10:45 a.m., the children will be dismissed to their classrooms. Preschoolers will have their music time at approximately 10:50 a.m. so they can go to their room right at 10:30 a.m. All other classes, 6th through adults, will begin at 10:40.

   Participation in Sunday School, Outstanding Attendance and Perfect Attendance will be recognized at the end of the year.  Those who have attended Sunday School 80% of the Sundays will be recognized for Outstanding Attendance. If you are out of town and attend another church, bring back a bulletin, give to your Sunday School teacher and it will be marked as present.

   Substitute teachers are also needed. Please let the office know if you would be willing to be on the list. You can always say no if you are not available.  It’s nice to have a variety of names to call.
