Children's Sunday School

Vision statement for Sunday school: We are committed to nurture and inspire wonder and growth in love and relationship with God and community.

We will enter the Lenten Season March 10th looking at the work of Fra Angelico and Rembrandt to guide our scripture reading and discussion during chapel time. We will then move down to the Sunday school room and begin taking a close look at the transformations taking place throughout the Spring season and discussing how they all beautifully reflect the meaning and significance of the Resurrection.

March Memory Verse John 1:1-5

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
