Sunday School

Promotion Sunday/Summer Break

This year, the Sunday School Promotion Sunday will be on June 30th, in which we will celebrate the accomplishments of the program this year, the teachers and volunteers that supported the over 100 students in our Sunday School program, and the many students who have recited their catechisms and scriptures for their grade level. If there are any students who have not yet recited their memory work for the year, there is still time. They have until Sunday, June 17th to recite it to their teacher or memory work volunteer for a prize awarded during Promotion Sunday.

After Promotion Sunday, we will take a two-month break from Sunday School during the months of July and August. We have heard from some parents that memory work can be difficult to practice during the school year. So, during the Sunday School hour in July and August, in addition to a time of fellowship for all ages, students will have the opportunity to recite their memory work for their new grade level to a teacher volunteer. This would be a great opportunity for students to get a jump-start on their memory work without having to compete for time with their schoolwork.

If you have any questions about these recent updates or the Sunday School program in general, please reach out to Elementary Sunday School Superintendent Adam Skrivan.
