What is “Sunday Connection”?
Sunday Connection is Life-Applicable Bible Study for All Ages. It is kind of like the Sunday School you grew up with, but SO much more! During the Cuppa Joy Coffee/Breakfast Bar time we connect with each other in fellowship; during Family Gathering we connect with each other and God through songs, skits, announcements & scripture; during Sunday Connection Classes we connect with God through Bible study & teaching for every age.
Children from birth through age 4 are welcome in Noah’s Ark Nursery. Loving & qualified staff care for our youngest disciples & use hands-on learning activities to teach Bible stories, learn Bible songs & more. Children age 4 through 8th grade will enjoy a new curriculum called “BLASt” (Bible Learning Adventure Stations) and rotate around to different areas of the church for drama, art, cooking, bible games, computer, etc. to reinforce their Bible learning. (See www.rotation.org for more info.) Ninth through twelfth grades will utilize a new curriculum called “XP3” (www.whatisorange.com).
Sunday Connection will once again offer 3 options for adults this fall. George McClennen will teach on September 7 and 21 on the book of Habakkuk. Carolyn Seward will teach on September 14, 28, and all of October. Her series is entitled “Does Living a Christian Life Have Impact for God?”.
Barb Brooks will facilitate “Table Talk” in September. Table Talk is a more informal offering. This class is designed for those of us with schedules that sometimes may prevent us from attending another class consistently. An independent topic is covered each week & may include something from current events, a personal struggle that someone would like to share, or a Bible topic that has been on someone’s heart. All discussions are centered on scripture and supplemented with prayer.
In October Edith Douie will continue her intensive study of the Gospel of Luke, in a more traditional classroom setting. Luke was a Gentile and had the knack of cutting through irrelevance to address the most fundamental questions of all: how can we be good, live closer to God and be more spiritual people?
