Young Persons and Sunday School

School Begins Soon and We have a Place
for Your Young Person in Sunday School!!
August 25 is promotion Sunday, and that means we are gearing back up for regular Sunday school in the youth and children’s areas. We are excited for your young people to join us in Godly Play in the elementary-aged groups, for the 5 th and 6th  graders to be joining us for our Connect Sunday School Class in the Library, and the youth, grades 7 th  – 12 will be meeting in the youth room exploring a variety of topics and books in the Bible.
Our purpose in Sunday School is to do our part in providing basic education and understanding of our faith and all that it encompasses. It is an important piece of faith development and connection to the church. Another very significant piece of Sunday School is the connection of children and families to one another as a part of our connection to the body of believers and specifically the family of Harrisburg United Methodist Church. I want to invite all of you to come and join us in Sunday School, there is even an adult component and we definitely have a place for you!
A second and larger piece of helping your young person to develop a life long love and reliance on Jesus is you, the parent. You have the most influence on your children. You spend the most time with them and you have the most opportunity to help them grow and make faith decisions. We have a place for you too! Toni Ruth will be doing a parenting study in her class this fall, that will help equip you and encourage you as you raise your children. We also have a loving and caring community that will be there to support you when you need it. Come and join us in Sunday School and bring your whole family!

Promotion Sunday – August 25, 2019

Promotion Sunday – August 25th

Children ages 2 through the 4th grade and their parents are invited to the Fellowship Hall at 9:45 a.m. for a morning snack and fellowship.  At 10 a.m. the children will be lead to their classes by the teachers.

Preschoolers – ages 2 & 3 (Room 14)

Children ages 4 years old through the 4th grade will attend  Godly Play Classes.  (Room 7 & 8)

Godly Play Curriculum provides children the opportunity for spiritual development through storytelling, creative play, and community. 

5th & 6th graders (Room 2) use a curriculum called  Connect, which connects all the Godly Play story to a larger picture of God working in our world.

BackPack Blessing

Join us in Worship on August 25th at 9 am. or 11 a.m. We invite students, teachers, and school administrators to bring their backpacks to church to receive a blessing.
Backpacks contain work to be done, tools to complete homework. Notebooks, pencils, pens, protractors, compasses, crayons, rules, scissors, glue sticks and other items used for school work will find their way in and out of backpacks.
Some days, so much stuff will fill these backpacks that the student may find it difficult to walk. Other days, they will be light and nearly empty. But on each and every day, these backpacks represent the work required of the students, teachers, and administrator gathered here. And, as in every aspect of our life, we bring these before God for the blessing at this time.

School Supplies

School Supplies
For the Month of August we’ll be collecting school supplies for Pitts School Road Elementary School. Here’s a link to the School Supply list which is by grade level, or just go to the store and purchase the basics: pencils, copy paper, markers, tissues, black marble composition books.
A Special Teacher Supply offering will be taken on August 18th. The goal is to provide each teacher with a gift card.
If you’re interested in volunteering at Pitts School or being part of the church connection team, you will need to apply for approval at https://www.cabarrus.k12.nc.us/ccsvolunteer
Sign up sheets are on the church bulletin board for volunteers to provide food for the teachers Back to School Breakfast and to be a Kindergarten Lunch Helper. Keep watch for more details on these two projects and more volunteer opportunities.

Summer Sunday School

Our Children’s Summer Sunday School theme is Superheroes Make Life Super for Others! Sometimes superheroes do great things. Other times it’s the little things that make them super. Big and small things add up to a life that honors God and allows us to do some super things for others.  Kids will learn that small acts done for Jesus can lead to a super life and they’ll learn how to make life super for others. Beginning June 9, our children’s Sunday School classes will be combining in the fellowship hall for an exciting time of learning about what real superheroes are like and how we can become Superheroes in the lives of others around us. Sunday School will begin at 9:45 am! Don’t be late and miss out on any of the fun!! Memory Verse: “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31b (NIV)

Parent or adult interested in leading a class, and yes we do need you!!!!, please check out our sign-up  genius and choose a class to teach! Our curriculum is all downloadable and will be available from Denise Spittle our Summer School coordinator! We also need a helper for every week. The only thing we ask is that you be safe sanctuary trained and I can help you out with that training.https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084ba9a722a3fc1-childrens1
