Education Updates for Fall 2016

Education Updates for Fall 2016

The Start to Another Great Year of Education School is soon resuming and so are the educational offerings at GSC! Over the past few years our dedicated and enthusiastic team has met, planned and orchestrated various learning opportunities for people of all ages who walk through our doors. Listed below are our team members, their roles, and what we have in store for the next month!   Sunday School Rally Day! Teachers and students will meet in their classrooms immediately after the 9:30am service on Sunday, September 11, 2016. The classrooms will be labeled and are the same as last year. This will only take about 5 minutes and then the kids can join their families for the Rally Day brunch potluck. We are so excited about the upcoming year! See you there! ~Sheryl Castro, Sunday Team Leader   New Program for Families with children ages Birth-4! Did you know parents have the largest influence on a child’s faith development? Knowing this, we think it is never too early to start sharing your faith with your family. Beginning Sunday, September 18, 2016, we will start a 6-week program called Frolic. Frolic gives families with infants and preschoolers a chance to do faith-filled activities together. Each week a different Bible story will be explored. Join us in the nursery at 9:30am on Sundays! We also look forward to presenting our 3-year-olds and 3rd graders with Bibles during the 9:30am service on Sunday, September 11, 2016. Please contact Tracy Tollefson if your child will or will not be able to receive his/her Bible on Rally Sunday. ~Tracy Tollefson, Vacation Bible School and Parent/Infant Education Team Leader...
