Sunday School News: Preparing for Easter

Our annual Easter Egg Hunt, which we hold on Easter Sunday, continues. In order to have an abundance of eggs, we are asking families to donate plastic eggs filled with individually wrapped treats or small stickers.  We would greatly appreciate a donation of one dozen eggs per child to ensure that we have enough on Easter Sunday for our church family and visitors.  There will be a large, labeled red collection bin just inside the church entrance March 11 through March 25.  Thank you so much in advance for your generous donations that make this fun event possible!


On March 25, Palm Sunday, Sunday school aged kids will participate in the palm procession and then go directly downstairs for a special Palm liturgy.


April 1 is Easter and thus we do not offer Sunday school to allow all kids aged 3 years and older to attend a church service and worship our Risen Lord as a family.


Sunday school starts at 9:45 every Sunday.  The exception in March will be Palm Sunday and April’s will be Easter (see note above).  The combined Godly Play classroom for children aged 3 years through 2nd grade will have presentations preparing them for the celebration of Easter, concluding with the Palm Liturgy on March 25.  The 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class continues to use a lectionary-based curriculum, Living the Good News, and the titles for the month of March will be: Zeal for God’s Law, God’s Love for All, Jesus Lifted Up and the Palm Liturgy on March 25.
