“Let the little children come to me … for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
The children gather for worship with the adults at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Following the opening prayer, Scripture, and a hymn, (about 10 – 15 minutes into the service) the pastor gives a special message to the children and then they are dismissed to the Sunday School program. They gather together with the adults following the service at the coffee hour fellowship in Fellowship Hall.
Sunday School starts with prayer in the Church’s chapel, then moves to the classroom next door. The lessons, which mirror the subject of the sermon the adults hear during the worship service, are based on the life and teachings of Jesus. These are taught at a level children can understand and implement in their lives. They learn that God loves them and all people. His teachings help everyone live a good and meaningful life here on earth and finally share eternal joy and peace in Heaven.
Here are some photos of the children preparing and then presenting Good News and Great Joy – their presentation during the Christmas Eve Sunday morning service:
