Christian Learning & Events

Back to School Greetings from CLF! As you read in the previous Messenger, we will adopt a one-room Sunday school this fall for all children, grades Pre-K through 6th. Using the Food Truck Party One Room VBS from Cokesbury Press, we will explore the Lord’s Prayer…through food. We will kick-off our year on September 18th — Saint Matthew Day! This and every Sunday at 9:15am, children will meet Pastor Eric in Fellowship Hall for an introduction to the lesson. There will then be a different engaging activity each Sunday that kids of all ages can enjoy—whether it be food preparation, science, museum, skits, crafts, etc. We will close at 9:55am, allowing families time to gather before the second service.

We have a handful of committed leaders, but are seeking volunteers to help guide a season that might interest them. There will always be at least one other adult preset, so you will not be alone. Do you like to make snacks? If so, would you like to steer food preparation one Sunday? Are you willing to co-lead a craft, science, dancing, or music activity? You would have all the materials you need and there would be little to no prep work, so what do you say? Will you donate one 1/2 hour of one Sunday to have fun with the youth at Saint Matthew? if so, please reach out to Melissa Feeney or Pastor Eric.

CLF is also looking for someone to help coordinate Adult Forum. This mainly consists of helping with scheduling and introducing speakers and topics to the audience each week.

Finally, it is worth nothing that the Families Ministries Coordinator position has been posted to indeed. If you or anyone you know would like to be considered for this part-time position view the job posting Can’t wait to see all the children on September 18th!
