Children's Sunday School Info and Needs!

Praise/Prayer Requests
Please join me in praising God for providing in the following ways for our Children's Sunday School program:
Preschool Class Teacher: Matt Anderson
K5-2nd Grade Class Co-teachers: Dan and Lisa Lewis
3rd-5th Grade Class Co-teachers: Barb Laman, Libby Fenn (Summer/Fall semester), and Joan Blakney

Please pray earnestly about how you can get involved in this ministry of our church:
1) We need a helper or co-teacher for the preschool class in order for these children to even have a Sunday school lesson on July 3rd.  Ideally a helper or co-teacher commits to the position for at least 1 year.
*Teacher's Job Description a) plans and prepares in advance for individual and small group Bible-learning experiences. b) obtains teaching materials and supplies prior to a session-Each teacher/co-teacher and helper is provided with a teacher manual that includes detailed lesson plans.  Each class is provided with each lesson's teaching and learning resources already organized to minimize time spent gathering these items. 
*Helper's Job Description a) plans and prepares in advance to become familiar with the lesson and activities b) provides support for the teacher by being the second person in the classroom and  assisting with individual and small group Bible learning experiences

2) We need at least one (2-3 would be even better!) back-up person for each class so that if a teacher or helper can't make it we don't have to either combine classes which would put kids in a 5-6 year age range in the same class OR send children to sit in the adult Sunday school class with their parents.

3) If you have children who are not involved in Sunday School, get them involved as a way to help you diligently teach your children the Word of God.
  “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." Deuteronomy 6:4-7
(diligence: constant and earnest effort to accomplish what is undertaken; persistent exertion of body or mind.)
