Sunday School for Children

Sunday School classes have paused through July 4th.
Look for a children's activity sheet near the Guestbook, that helps kids focus on this week's Gospel lesson!

We also encourage families to be engaged in devotional time at home through reading the Scriptures; experiencing a new church location as you travel for vacation; finding unique and interesting places to have family prayer time; and having caring conversations about how Jesus is working within your daily lives.

Materials can be found on this page to cover some great lessons at home.

Managing fear and anxiety during a health pandemic

 

'Screen addiction' is becoming a real problem, even more so during COVID-19 lockdowns, which is why it's more important than ever for children and adults alike to learn and develop healthier digital habits. Here is a useful resource called “Understanding Screen Addiction and Responsible Digital Use” which offers lots of valuable information such as:

  • How technology use has changed over the years (72% of adults now consider smartphones their most essential device)
  • The impact of COVID-19 on screen time use and digital behaviors (smartphone usage in the UK surged by 30% during lockdown)
  • Understanding screen addictions and how our devices affect our brains and change our behaviors (e.g. dopamine-driven reward loops)
  • Helpful tips and useful advice for tackling device addiction, managing gadget and internet use, and creating healthier digital habits.
