Our Advent Bible Study of Adam Hamilton’s Faithful begins December 1, 9:30a or 7:30p.


WHEN: Sunday, December 1, 2019
TIME: 9:30am
Do you have questions about volunteering in Sunday School? Want to know more about what the Sunday School is up to? Come and join me for a cup of coffee and some discussion about where our Sunday School is going and how we can all help our youngest members grow in their faith.
This will also be the first early service that Pastor Kathleene is providing from 8-8:30am during advent. If you are interested in helping in the Sunday School, but don’t want to miss a service there is a way to do both!

The Sunday School has planned to attend this event with the children and their families, and welcomes the church family to join in an evening of fellowship. As the Christmas season approaches let us remember why we celebrate. This is a free event put on by the Our Savior Lutheran Church in Westminster, MA. Join us as we experience what life might have been like the night Jesus was born.

For Advent, the Sunday School will be using Adam Hamilton’s Faithful:
Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph to view the Christmas story from another perspective. Throughout the lessons they will learn about Joseph, who he was and how despite feeling unsure in the beginning, faithfully followed God’s plan.
Susan Campbell-Halley will be planning a “Messy Church” event for February and she is looking for other’s feedback! The idea is that we would have an evening where the Sunday School could invite their families, families from the community and members of the congregation to get together for a meal, story and a craft. If you have thoughts, ideas or questions see Susan. Thanks!
