We will be tracking attendance again this year.  Our teachers spend many hours preparing lessons and projects for your children, and we want them to have the very best Christian Education possible, but we can’t do it without your help.  We know that Sunday School competes with many other activities on Sunday mornings, but we ask that you make your child’s Christian education a priority in your home.   If your child is unable to attend, please call or text their teacher so the class does not wait for them to begin.   This is the same policy that public school has, so we believe it will seem natural for you to notify teachers in the event of an absence.  Thank you for respecting everyone’s time in doing this!

We will continue to use e-mail and texting as our main source of communication as it will save both time and money addressing letters and postcards regarding upcoming events, happenings or cancellations.   If you don’t access your email regularly, please let Michelle know at the church office by calling 874-2750, and we will mail paper copies of correspondence to you.     

If you have any questions, please contact me at 874-8227 or 881-6235 or e-mail me at Thank you for your participation in the Sunday School program.


In Christ’s Love,


Becky Krause
Sunday School Superintendent
