Sunday school starts up again at WPC on Sunday August 30th at 9:45am!
Here’s a quick run-down on the classes offered…
The Nursery class will continue to offer basic catechism question-and-answer lessons.
“Q- Who made you? A – God.” “Q – What else did God make? A – God made all things.”
Mrs. Neal will return as the Kindergarten teacher, and Mrs. Busch will return as the 1st/2nd grade teacher. Both of these classes will begin a new two-year curriculum which focuses in the Fall semester on God’s relationship to families – God creates them, He calls them, He blesses them, and He is faithful to them.
The 3rd-5th grade class will be led by Mr. Hendrix. This class is also beginning a new two-year curriculum, which will be a complete survey of the Bible. The Fall semester focuses on Genesis because there is so much ground to cover in that one book, but subsequent semesters will cover more books at a faster pace.
The 6th – 12th grade youth classes will be led by Pastor Clint once again. The Fall semester will begin with lessons on the Exodus, and provide an opportunity for the students to discuss the relationship between Judaism and Christianity. Subsequent lessons will follow Israel’s march through the period of the Judges and into the time of its monarchy and how that system ultimately failed the people. These lessons will include discussions on the tensions between religious and political worldviews.
The adults have two classes to choose from.
1) Tim Keller’s book entitled “Walking with God through Pain and Suffering”
2) The video series and book entitled “The Story”, which is a 31 session survey of the Bible told as an “upper story” (God’s purpose) and a “lower story” (How that purpose is accomplished with people and events on the ground).
