SUNDAY SCHOOL
The Sunday School teachers of Bethel UMC look forward to your children and other children in your life coming to weekly Sunday School from 9:45AM-10:45AM in the children's ministry room in the Chapel. Sunday School is for ages 4-11.

"While it is critical that we give kids a firm foundation in doctrine and the Bible, a saving knowledge constitutes both head and heart knowledge of Jesus. Yes, we must transfer a certain amount of requisite knowledge to kids in order for them to understand God's story and His plan in human history; we must point them towards a heart knowledge of Jesus and encourage a relationship with Him." – Paraphrased from: http://ministry-to-children.com/20-non-negotiable-principles-forevangelizing-kids/#sthash.UnLzs4sJ.dpuf

With that said, it takes MANY adults to work with children at church in order to encourage their developing relationship with Christ. Volunteers are needed for Sunday School classes, children's church, and Wednesday evening kids program. Help to shape a positive view of what it is to be a Christian by assisting with Children's Ministry.

Why Sunday School?

Last month I submitted 5 of the 10 reasons to BRING your child to Sunday School. Well here are the last 5, according to www.ministry-for-children.com
1. Praying Teachers: Our staff and volunteers consistently pray for your child's faith to grow. Coming to Sunday School gives another occasion for God to answer those requests.
2. Big Reward For a Small Investment: If you're already coming to church, just come a little earlier. That one change will equal over 800 hours of additional Christian teaching before your child graduates.
3. Send the Right Message: Making Sunday School a priority shows your kids that God's Word really does matter more than bedtime.
4. Adult Bible Fellowship: While the children enjoy their class, you can fellowship with other adults in your own Bible study group.
5. You'll Be On Time: Families who come to Sunday School always get to worship on time. It's the easiest way to avoid being late.
So BRING your children, grandchildren, neighbors to Sunday School at 9:45am in the fellowship hall. We are serious about preparing our children to be disciples of Jesus!
