Our Sunday School program will be starting up again, many thanks to Fil Sotana and Sarah Vinu for taking the initiative in this important ministry.
The general format for Sunday School will include a brief Children’s Focus at the beginning of the service. Sunday School then takes place in the upper hall, returning back to the service towards the conclusion of the Prayer of the People.
As this is a re-start with some renewed and fresh program material, the Sunday School will be entering a Pilot Period over Lent where there will be opportunity for Fil and Sarah to determine what is working and how this ministry can grow. Please spread the word among your neighbours and friends who may interested in participating again in Sunday School.
For more information and registration, please contact Fil at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone, 778-828-4057.
