This week’s Sunday School & Youth News


This week in Sunday School we start our countdown to Christmas in Sunday School this week by learning why the best gift of all can’t be found in any store. We’ll apply our lesson to some festive songs, fun Bible games and a Christmas-themed craft.

We welcome Alison King as our new Sunday School Co-ordinator. Alison can be reached through the Sunday School email

December 18th is our last Sunday School gathering before Christmas Day and all the children are invited to a special birthday party for baby Jesus. We plan to serve chips, cheesies, fruit, juice, and nut-free birthday cake, and will have nut-free cookies for the kids to ice and decorate. If your child has food allergies other than nuts (particularly airborne ones) please contact Alison ASAP ( so we can ensure everyone enjoys the party safely.

Reboot…. Sunday School is rebooting….

We need your help!  Wait, please don’t stop reading saying, “I don’t know how to teach?”  I did that a long time ago, I’m too old to do that?”  “I don’t have the time.  I’m so busy!”

Those are only reasons to miss the wonderful blessing of sharing God’s love and God’s Word, with eager, hopeful young eyes and ears. It is losing out on the opportunity to share your love of children and to help our Walton Children and Youth to see faith in action.  We are looking for Sunday School Teachers and Helpers to learn and grow with the Children and Youth. We are flexible, and we have a variety of ages you can share time with.  Lesson plans are provided, it is an hour on Sunday morning, but a gift of God’s Word for a child’s lifetime. Please contact Alison or Val in the office or for this amazing opportunity, gift and blessing.
