Fall Festival Thank You

Thank you to all of the Fall Festival volunteers who jumped in and helped, including staying after to clean up after the event. The rain didn’t put a damper on the night. Everyone seemed to have a great night. Thanks for being flexible. A special thank you goes to Justin Johnson, the youth, Callie Minks, Stacie Herron, Jerry Farmer, Gail Singleton, and Ronnie Logue II. Also, thanks to Paula Scott and the Stombergers for the wonderful puppet show. Love, Tara Farmer

Children’s Sunday School

Children and parents, we hope you join us for Bible study each week. Children’s Sunday School has developed a Bible study plan designed to take children through the major passages and themes of the Bible. This Bible study plan can be found on our web page under, “Bible Study and Teachers Helps.” Children age three through grade 4 use a four year cycle and generally study the same themes each week in ways that are developmentally appropriate to each age group. Planet 56 (fifth and sixth graders) go through the key stories of the Old and New Testaments in order in two years. Planet 56 is currently going through the New Testament. Our younger children’s classes will begin a new unit this Sunday, November 6, “Experiencing God.” We have an excellent staff of Sunday School teachers who provide interesting and fun learning experiences for children. Preschool: Nicole Farmer and Callie Minks; Grades 1-2: Rosalind Campbell and Carolyn Montgomery; Grades 3-4: Donna Pierce and Dianne Stillwell; Planet 56: Chip Minks and Shawna Stomberger.
