Sunday school note from Kim Canning

This note is typical of the kind of communication our teachers and parents receive weekly from our Sunday school coordinator Kim Canning.

This week in Sunday school, our preschool through 2nd grade students, taught by Kathrin Midgley and Carrie Munford, will read from John 14:15–21.  This is a hard text for children to follow.   Verse 20 , as spoken by Jesus, is likely a key verse for them:  “I am in my Father, you are in me and I am in you.”  Greek language students point out that “in us” can also be translated “among us.”  And verse 21:  They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.”  Following is a comment about the lesson from our curriculum:  As they hear Jesus’ promise of the Spirit, children will sense how God loves them and think of ways to extend that love to others.

Our 3rd and 4th grade students, taught by Mary Ann Borkowski, will review material they covered during the past year.

These three classes will meet with Kathryn Welter for the first 10 minutes of class-time in order to prepare for singing during the worship service on Sunday, June 8.  Attached are lyrics to the two songs they are learning so that you can practice with them at home during the week.

Our 5th through 8th grade students will meet in the sanctuary where they will receive acolyte training or review from Milly.  Our current acolytes will assist with the training of our new recruits.  I encourage the parents of our new and current acolytes to attend the session, as well, so that you can support your student when it is their turn to serve.

Information about our Year-End Sunday School Celebration and Family Picnic on June 8.Peace has been invited to participate in the Wayland 375 Celebration Parade on Saturday, June 14 at 9:30 AM.  The three-mile parade will start at the Cochituate Ball Field and end at Wayland Town Building.  The last group in the parade is expected to finish at noon.

On Sunday, June 8, our Sunday school students and families will create a banner to be carried along the parade route.  The children will have an opportunity to decorate their bikes if they would like to ride them during the parade.  Following the decoration of the banner and bikes, we will have a family picnic on the grounds of Peace.  The weather will be beautiful, of course!

What I would like to know from you:

Is your family planning to participate in the Year-end Sunday school celebration and family picnic at Peace on June 8?

Would your family like to walk or ride bikes with Peace during the parade on Saturday morning, June 14?

Are you or your children involved in the parade through another Wayland group or organization?

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions about preparations for the parade or about the parade itself or anything concerning our Sunday school program.

Thank you for bringing your children to Peace!  They add life, spirit, hope, and love to our faith-full congregation.

“The Christian education program at Peace, where your child can experience God’s love through worship, learning, and fellowship.”

With blessings,
