Roots & Wings Sunday School

For: Children grades K-5
Dates: Oct 10 & 24 / Nov 7 & 21 / Dec 5
Time: 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Leader: Mary Jo Stevenson & Teddi Koch

Glen Rowan House (across from the Chapel)

The Glen Rowan House is a magnificent setting for Sunday School classes! Children begin church in the Chapel with their parents, and during the announcements meet their teachers in the rear of the Chapel, who escort them to class. Church and Roots & Wings end simultaneously, and parents pick up their children at Glen Rowan. 

Curriculum: Children’s Ministry Co-Directors Teddi Koch and Mary Jo Stevenson use the “A Joyful Path” curriculum as a foundation for classes, which include fun, hands-on activities. 

Focus: To plant the seeds of faith, inspire compassion for all, and for the children to learn the key teachings of Jesus.

Dates: December 12 initial practice during church, December 18 dress rehearsal, December 19 pageant
