10/9 Sunday School

This week….

PreK-2nd grade students will enjoy music at 9:00 and then hear the story about Jesus and the Tax Collectors. Jill Westberg and a TBD substitute (maybe you? Please respond to this email if you are available. Coffee and light snack provided.) will share that Jesus modeled kindness towards everyone. At that time, tax collectors were seen as wrongdoers. Instead, Jesus opened his home and served a meal to the tax collectors. Children under the age of 5 are invited to stay as long as they are able and then transfer to the nursery to play with Antonia Wuschner and Joey Miller.

3rd-5th Grade will continue their Peacemaker exploration. Last week, they explored forgiveness. This week, they will talk about another important piece of becoming a peacemaker – saying I'm sorry. Through a variety of active stations, they will consider how to say “I'm Sorry” and the power of those words. Paul Vash and Jen Walker will guide them through the process.

Looking ahead: Do you have any magazines with positive words and phrases and/or pictures of food? O Magazine, Runner's World, National Geographic, Food Network, etc? In November, 3-5 will create a Thanksgiving collage. I'm looking for magazines that might work for this project. If you have some to share, please bring them to the Bridges Room or leave in the office with my name on them. Thanks!

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
