Sunday School 2018-2019:
Our congregation is currently reading through the Bible together with a program called The Story. This is an all ages journey where the focus in classes for kids, teens and adults as well as in worship will be the same Bible Stories. The Story is written as a novel with no verse numbers and "skipping" over some parts and replacing them with narrative summaries. The chapters of each level of books covers the same content, but at the age appropriate level.
Each child and teen will get their own book appropriate for their age level and each household will get The Story for adults. Information on each book is below. The schedule of which chapters of the book we will be reading through is located on several large banners in the building. These books are provided free of charge.
If you are new to our program and have yet to receive your copy/copies of The Story, please let us know.
Save the Date: This year's VBS will be held from Monday 7/29 to Friday 8/2. This year's theme will be Wild, Wild West. Join us as we show the children of the Rochester community a Wild Trust, a Wild God, Wild Choices, a Wild Message, and most importantly of all, the Wild Love that God has for each of us.
If you would like to make a donation to help offset the costs of VBS, you can contact the church office for ways to do so.
If you would like to purchase supplies to offset the cost of VBS, you can purchase them off our Amazon wishlist. Items still remaining on this list will be purchased in early June so we can begin with craft prep. You can access the wish list by clicking here.
During both Sunday worship services, children are invited forward for a Children's Message. At the 8:30 service children will return to their pews to worship with their families after the Children's message. At the 10:45 service, Kid's Time is available for children ages 3 through 3rd grade following the Children's Message. Children will go to the library and learn about one of the Bible lessons of the day and complete games, crafts and activities to reinforce the message. Children will be brought back to the sanctuary shortly after the sermon.
For infants through age 3, Faith offers Nursery Care, provided by our Nursery staff member, Julie Heidman and a youth volunteer. Nursery care is available throughout Sunday morning (including during the education hour).
Save the date- VBS 2019 will be held from Monday, July 29-Friday August 2, 2019. Registration will be available starting in the spring.
We encourage you to come as a family, worship, and attend education (there are youth and adult classes, too!).
Let us know if there is anything we can do for you or your family. We look forward to seeing you!
