Guiding Children


Parent’s Corner- March 17, 2019


“For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.  Command and teach these things.”

1 Timothy 4:10-11 ESV


As I was planning our Spring curriculum schedule, I realized that we were going to have an open week, situated right in between our regular course of study and our series of Easter lessons.  I am so thankful that our elders agreed to come in and be guest teachers in our children’s Sunday school classes!  It’s so important for kids to know that they are an important and vital part of the church body as a whole.  Their sense of belonging can be very important as they grow and seek to make their faith their own.  Our elders were thrilled with the opportunity, just as we were thrilled to have them! 


This week in Sunday School. . .

4s-K, 1st-2nd, 3rd-5th- Taught by an elder

This week, our Elementary Sunday school classes were taught by Grace Church Elders.  Be sure to ask your child who their special guest speaker was, what he talked about, and what questions he was asked.  Thank you, elders, for sharing your morning with us!
