Our Nursery/ Preschool and One Room School/Elementary continue to thrive under the care of the teachers Diane Bigl, Kelly Scudder and Bonnie Weston with regular assistance by Cheyenne Cooper. Since Christmas our lessons have centered on Jesus’ Miracles, the Meaning of Easter and the Disciple Paul and his part in Jesus’ ministry.
The state of Alaska is our mission focus. We are learning about the ministry projects in Willow, Alaska where the cost of food is 31% above the national average. The church began the only food pantry there where some people may travel 25 miles to get food. It has also provided seeds and starter trays for people to use in their gardens. During the next few weeks, we will have an opportunity to support this great project!
Our last scheduled Sunday School classes before the summer break will be on June 3rd with our children performing a skit during the church service.
