They will examine Scripture to see how Almighty God enabled Paul, through good times and bad, to faithfully share the gospel of Christ with people of many different cultures in many different locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I need to miss a Sunday due to vacation, what should I do?

There will be a substitute teacher list in your information folder.  Please try to secure a sub as soon as you know you will be gone.  Past experience suggests that a teacher experiences better results in finding a sub when calling instead of emailing. Once you find a sub, please alert Beth Fromme so that she can welcome them to class and offer assistance to them.   If you are unsuccessful at finding a sub, please contact Beth.

What do I do if I have questions or concerns?

Please feel free to contact Beth Fromme, our Children’s Ministry Director, with any questions or concerns you might have about the children, the lesson, or any policies and procedures. She is generally at church Tuesday-Thursday and can be reached at 454-3833 or by email at [email protected].
