Developing loving relationships with Christ and our community

Featured Ministry: Beginners
Laura Beth Schneider, Ministry Leader; Jane Cross, Assistant
The Cradle Roll or Beginners Sabbath school class is for our littlest members, ages 0-3 years of age, which is a wonderful and creative time in a child’s life. We strive to integrate the love of Jesus and His amazing world into a single experience. Parents will join their children for Sabbath School and assist in the child’s participation.
The goal of this ministry is to have various programs that provide learning about Jesus in a fun and interactive way. A variety of songs and activities tell how wonderful Jesus the Creator is and help to reinforce the theme of the program. The songs have catchy tunes that can be sung at home during the week. While ideas such as sharing, taking turns and obedience are taught, the main goal for each program is to allow the children to “give their hearts” to Jesus, as a gift in response for all the wonderful gifts that He has given us.

Currently we are learning about the farm and all of the wonderful animals that Jesus has made. We are also learning about gardening, including planting, watering, raking, etc., at a very basic level and that it is Jesus that makes the plants to grow.
We are so appreciative of the church support that we receive and we ask that you please continue to hold up the teaching staff, the parents, and the children in prayer as we work together to grow in our experience of loving Jesus.
Dear Church Family,

We hope this newsletter is a useful resource for church members to stay involved and be in-the-know.
