Summer Sunday School
We’ve designed a Sunday School format for our Elementary-aged group that allows for families to stay together, recognizing that so often families are pulled apart at the church on Sunday mornings. We hope that Summer Sunday School provides a respite for busy, stressed, and worn-out families.
In self-directed centers, families will read scripture, and then use materials provided to create a piece that reminds them of the scripture. Most stations will use Legos; some will have art materials too. Come build your relationship with God as you use your hands, imagination and God-given creativity.
We are asking parents to sign up as a Host Family for at least one week over the summer if their child will be participating (although you can sign up for more if you'd like).
What does it mean to be a Host Family? Simply to extend a warm welcome & hospitality to every family who walks into Grundy Hall!
Adults, Youth and older elementary children are encouraged to sign up to as station Center Guides.
A station Guide helps children navigate through the various centers. Instructions and coaching are provided making this an easy and rewarding job on Sundays! They may also "adopt" children who do not have a parent participating in the building stations.
The summer program is very relaxed with smaller weekly attendance, making it a great time to make new friends in this community of faith!
Your presence and participating on Sunday morning is important and valued.

**Some parents may choose to serve as leaders in their younger child’s preschool group, or attend an adult Sunday School class summer (note that some adult classes do not meet during the summer months). For these occasions, their elementary-age child can still participate alongside other elementary children and families.
