Sunday School 10/16

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 Josie Gilbert 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. Parents, check out this website to learn more about the controversy of tax collectors in the first century: 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 complete their Peacemaker exploration. Last week, they explored how to say “I'm sorry.” This week, they will put all of their lessons together and discuss “living courageously as a peacemaker.” Joanna Beilman-Dulin will guide them through the discussion and active stations.

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.
