Days are getting longer and the hint of summer warmth is in the air! Hard to believe this Sunday is our last Sunday School session of the school year!
As most of you know, our Sunday School program is always evolving. We are constantly looking for ways to breathe new life into our program. This year we introduced Outreach Activities at the start of our classroom sessions. The students worked on activities like “Color a Smile”, painting pumpkins and making greeting cards for Vets and Bucket Fillers.
Speaking of changes, my term as Sunday School director will come to a close this May. I began leading the program in 2016 alongside Jenniffer Harrington and was joined this year by Kathy Pastiu. Going forward, Brad and Jackie Davies have graciously agreed to lead the program. Brad and Jackie have been members of Good Shepherd for the past few years and are actively involved in Sunday School, both teaching in the classroom and leading Youth Fellowship activities. I am absolutely thrilled to have Brad and Jackie lead our program and look forward to watching it continue to evolve and grow.
Please join us this Sunday for our last lesson of the school year. The students will be working together on a Youth Fellowship exercise to create bookmarks for our newcomers. Next Sunday we will honor our students and teacher volunteers during announcements followed by an ice cream party for the students!
On a personal note, it has been my absolute pleasure leading Sunday School for the past three years and incredibly rewarding getting to know your children and watching them grow. Thank you for your commitment to our program and all of the support you have provided!
