Sunday School - Sundays at 9:00 a.m - Church Undercroft
This year, the Sunday School students began a new curriculum. We are using the resources and materials from a novelization of the Bible called, "The Story." The primary emphasis is to help our children know and understand what the Bible contains and how it can be applied to a young person's life. There are formats for young children, elementary children, as well as teens. We also have a curriculum for adults.
Each week has lessons which include media for the students to hear and watch, activities to do, and discussion topics for the older students to help digest what's been read. One unique characteristic of this program is that the Bible is presented in a chronological timeline. Not everyone is aware that the books of the bible do not follow a linear timeline, which often makes it difficult to make connections to what God is telling us. Now we will be able to see when events of the Bible occurred, especially as it relates to the life and death of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
As we journey through "The Story," we will dig into the context of all the major Bible figures such as Adam & Eve, Abraham, Moses, Elijah, David, as well as lesser known figures, but equally part of God's plan. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to read the Bible in a fun and engaging way and know the word of God and build a solid foundation of faith.
Adult Education - Sundays at 9:00 a.m. - Memorial Hall
Our Adult Education Group, led by Gordon Delchamps, meets every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. in Memorial Hall. We have been sharing discussions about books for years now.
Books are suggested by members of the group, and there have been some very meaningful discussions about the concepts in the books.
You are always welcome to join the COTT Adult Education Group if you are interested. We read about 20 pages per week, so it is not too difficult to participate.
