Thank you for your continued support in this vital mission. If you have any questions, please contact Diane Walsh at 203-926-9589 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An Invitation to Serve
We are inviting you to join the Sunday School Volunteers to share a Bible story or two with our youngsters followed by a hands-on craft and/or a cut and paste activity one Sunday a month. All materials will be available to you that morning; no preparation required just the love of God and the willingness to share His word in child-like language. About 30 minutes only one Sunday a month. It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face! If you are interested in this opportunity, please see Donelle during coffee hour.
