Christian Education Update

Beginning on March 7th the children will return to Chapel for the first time in over a year. We are looking forward to bringing this normalcy back to everyone's lives. The children will meet in the Parlor on the first Sunday of each month for approximately 15-20 of service. Though Chapel will be a little different than what we are used to. We will be socially distanced, no guest presenters, and the service will be altered. 

 

Another event that we all missed last year was Vacation Bible School (VBS). We are committed to hosting VBS this summer and are working on planning a safe, fun and educational week for everyone. If you are interested in helping with planning, volunteering the week of VBS, helping in anyways possible that you can please contact the Interim Christian Education Director, Kirsten Vargo. 

 

Sunday School takes place both online via Zoom and in person. Attendance has been great and we continue to follow the safe church protocols of socially distancing, wearing masks and checking in upon arrival at church. One change we have made is how everyone enters the building. Everyone is to come up the ramp on the Campbell Avenue side of the building (yes that includes Sunday School families). After check in the children will head upstairs to their classrooms and the parents will be escorted to the sanctuary for service. Once Sunday School and service are over parents/guardians will meet their children outside the Campbell Avenue doors. If you are not receiving the weekly information about Sunday School please reach out to Kirsten Vargo. We hope you will join us. 

 

As we continue to teach our children to pray and how important it is in their faith journey. Please talk to your children and tell them that it is ok to pray wherever they are, it shouldn’t be limited to just church. To continue to encourage our children (adults too) to pray each day here is a monthly calendar of ideas to help everyone pray.

If you have any questions regarding Sunday School, children’s programs or how we are navigating our programs during COVID-19 please do not hesitate to reach out to Kirsten Vargo, Interim Christian Education Director at kvargo@fccwesthaven.org.
