Sunday School Events:
In this COVID-19 Season, so many programs and activities have needed to be reimagined. How we do Christian Education and Spiritual Formation is no different. Through the summer, we have been brainstorming how to continue building relationships within our congregation as well as with God. The Christian Education and Spiritual Formation Committee met on Thursday, August 27, to discuss what our plan will look like for the Fall of 2020.
We are going to be creating small groups of youth and adults to discuss the curriculum by the Interprovincial Board of Communication, the Southern Province Resource Center and the Eastern District Christian Education Committee called Living Branches. The focus will be on Moravian History and Theology. Small groups will be assigned and within this setting, you all will decide what time, day, and location you would like to meet to discuss. If you would like to use Zoom, that can be arranged by contacting Pastor Rebecca Sisley. Or you can use Facebook Messenger Video, FaceTime, or set up a google hang out room to have these small groups. If you would like to meet in person over ice cream or a meal, that is a great thing, please just make sure all members of your group are open to this idea. All the lessons are in a digital form so you can have them before your gatherings to read through and develop questions. You can find the links for the Living Branches program attached to this email.
The Christian Education and Spiritual Formation Committee is asking that you fill out the survey to indicate if you are interested in participating or leading a group. Please fill out the survey for all members of your household. If you are not interested, please respond to the email as well.
If you have any questions, please reach out to any member of the Christian Education and Spiritual Formation Committee for an answer. Those members are: Lori Zataveski (Chair) Karen Adams (Vice-Chair) Carrie Kershaw (Secretary) Kathy Shaffer (Elder Representative/Sunday School Teacher) Hope Sanderson (Sunday School Teacher) Andrea Peart DeFlaviis (Youth Leader Representative) Diane Schroeder (Trustee Representative) Kathy Pippin (Nursery Coordinator) Danny Maniscalco (Youth Representative) Heather Adams (Youth Representative). We would love to hear from you. You will see in the survey that there is an informational meeting on Tuesday September 22 at 7PM on Zoom. We hope you will join us. Please fill out and submit the survey prior to Sunday September 13.
We thank you for your responses and for engaging in this exciting new program.
Peace to you all, and be well!
We hope to see you there!
