Welcome Back Everybody!

We want to thank everyone for making Christian Education such a success last year! We witnessed a lot of growth in relationships between the children and with other congregation members. We look forward to growing even more this year. We are always looking to expand the CE program and we already have some additions to share with you. Firstly, C.E. Squad is the new term for Church/Sunday School. This new name is team-focused, energetic and will encourage a more unique and intriguing CE experience for the children. Don’t be intimidated by the name, our squad is always inclusive and welcomes new members! As for the other terms, you’ll just have to wait and find out! Secondly, there will be many new terms which accompany this name change. It’s all about creating a lasting experience for the children of the congregation. Thirdly, keep your eyes peeled for all of the exciting sessions (formerly known as lessons) and events to come, this year!

Teach What You Love Lessons

The CE Squad gave an open invitation to all members of the congregation to teach a Sunday School lesson on something they love. Brock and Joanne taught photography and science, Dennis taught about money, Bethany taught about animals, Bob, Carolyn and family taught about healthy living, J.R. and Phyllis taught about knitting and Hamlet John taught about judo. All of these lessons were interactive, informative and spiritual. It was a great opportunity for members to bond with the children of our congregation and we had nothing but good feedback from the teachers and students! If you would be interested in teaching what you love, please send us an email or give us a call as we intend on having another series of Teach What You Love lessons this year.
