May 26 Connection: WAFFLE Symposium

Announcing our First Summer Sunday Symposium

This summer, there will be speakers at the 9:30 hour in Fellowship Hall on featured Sunday mornings. As most adult classes take a break for the summer, this is a time to reconnect in fellowship and learning. Come to our first symposium on June 4th to learn about our outreach program at State Street. Four years ago, our church received an urban ministry grant and began an outreach ministry with State Street Elementary School called WAFFLE. Sarah Sharp, principal at State Street, and Jaena Greenwood, Director of WAFFLE, will lead this Sunday School hour. They will focus on what WAFFLE is, who the program serves, what the volunteers at WAFFLE do, current needs of the program, and the impact that WAFFLE has on the staff and students at State Street.

Summer Schedule for Children’s Sunday School

Beginning June 4th, children and their families will have the opportunity to worship together at the 9:30 a.m. service prior to children being dismissed to their Sunday school classes. Children check-in in the Celebration Room, then sit with their families or with Sunday school volunteers for the beginning of 9:30 worship. After a children’s message, children will go upstairs to Sunday School with their classmates and several adult leaders. Parents will pick up their children from the Sunday school area following the 9:30 service.
