Our Sunday School groups meet during the 10:00 a.m. service each Sunday.
School-Age and Preschool Groups: Children from 2.5 to 12 years of age gather in the children's activity area in the North Transept of the church before the 10 a.m. service, remain in church till after the Children's Focus, head to the classroom for Bible stories and activities, returning to the service in time for communion.
Infant Toddler Group: Children under 2.5 years of age can be dropped off in the Infant/Toddler space in the Reception Room before the 10 a.m. service and picked up from there when it is over. A parent may choose to remain with the child until he or she feels comfortable or if the teacher suggests that you do so.
Child care is offered in the Preschool classroom during the 9 to 10 a.m. Christian Education Hour.
Calling all budding actors! The Grace Church Christmas Pageant will be performed on Dec. 17 during the 10 a.m. service. We need angels, shepherds, kings, innkeepers and more! Rehearsals will be on the mornings of Dec. 9 and 16. We hope your family can participate – please let me know.
We are also looking for families to read the Advent candle-lighting prayers at the beginning of each Sunday 10 a.m. service during Advent (Dec. 3, 10, 17) and for the 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. services on Dec. 24. Please let me know if your family can take part.
This Week in Sunday School – Investing in What is Offered – Matthew 25: 14-30
Focus: We continue to read from the judgment texts in Matthew, and this week we are to look at what our contribution has been to the Kin-dom of God. The landowner goes away and leaves his property in the care of three household slaves. The landowner returns and wants to know what has happened during his absence. There is no resolution of the story only the telling of it. The hearers are to decide who was good and faithful.
How can we invest our whole selves in helping others? What gifts, talents or passions can you encourage in others and/or in yourself?
Prayer: God, help us to choose our actions wisely, our convictions tenderly, and practice our ministry boldly. Amen.
