Christian Education News

Sunday school will be starting on Sunday, September 16th for Rally Day. All children are welcome back to the classroom to celebrate our first day of Sunday school. We will be catching up with each other on summer adventures and checking in on how the new school year has started. There will be a back-to-school barbecue coffee hour following the service with games.We look forward in seeing you.   

Sunday School Schedule for the year:
Our nursery will be open every Sunday welcoming our littlest Christians from infants to pre-k children. The elementary children (kindergarten through fourth grade) will have
Sunday school the first and third Sunday of the month. Craft Sunday will be on the second Sunday of the month for the elementary children. The youth group (fifth grade through
twelfth grade) will have Sunday school the second and fourth Sunday of the month.  

Vacation Bible Camp: 
We had a great V.B.C. this summer. With 41 children attending, we hosted our largest V.B.C. to date. Thank you to Katelin Olson and her team of faithful leaders in making this experience wonderful for all the treasure hunters. Our time together included dinner, bible stories, music, crafts, games and mission projects. 

With the new school year starting, we ask for prayers not only for teachers, parents and our children but for all those who work with them as well. We ask for the Good Lord to watch over the bus drivers, monitors, aides, custodians, cafeteria workers and support staff. We ask God to provide guidance to the administration of our schools. May we all work together for the betterment of all children in our community. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen

A team of committed volunteers has developed a strong and very well attended children’s
Sunday School program here at J.C.U.M.C. The program runs from September through June. 
Children attend the first half of the regular worship service which includes a children’s message followed by the collection of the Noisy Offering. Children collect loose change from congregation members in tin buckets which make a lot of noise, thus the name, Noisy Offering
We conclude with a prayer of thanks and the children then go to their
respective Sunday School classes for age appropriate lessons and activities while
the adults enjoy the remainder of the service.
