SUNDAY SCHOOL: (3-year-olds through 6th Grade)
Classes are offered for 3-year-olds through 6th Grade.  Sunday School begins with music and singing each Sunday morning in the Sanctuary from 9:45 – 10 AM.   ALL Sunday School Students, Preschool through 6th Grade, meet in the Sanctuary for the Opening.  The Opening includes special music (songs from Day Camp, VBS and the Hymnal), an introduction to the Theme of the Day, special guests and unexpected surprises!  At 10 AM, students move to the Youth Room for a short video and then to Sunday School Classrooms for a Bible Lesson and group activities.

A Combined 7th - 8th Grade Confirmation Class meets in Room 110. Confirmation will be celebrated on Reformation Sunday, October 31 for four 9th Grade Students, who are: Isabella Curcio, Jackie Fairbanks, Thomas Holmes and Beorn Skjonsby.  Please contact Roger with any questions regarding the Confirmation Program.

HIGH SCHOOL CLASS: (Grades 9 – 12)
Through Bible Study and sharing, youth grow in their faith, learn to connect with each other in meaningful ways and explore ways to serve God and others. High School students are invited to join us in the Sanctuary at 9:45 AM for the Sunday School Opening.  After the opening, our High School students will either stay with the Sunday School students (helping with activities and crafts) or will go to the Youth Room for a separate High School Class.

Movie Review
News of the World
Sunday, October 24, 3 pm

“Wandering from town to town, only five years after the end of the Civil War, the former Confederate Army officer, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks), travels the dusty and dangerous roads of 1870 Texas to make a living. For the price of a dime, gentle Kyle, dressed in his impeccable suit, informs and entertains the people, reading the latest news and recounting stories of exotic, far-off places from his pile of newspapers. Then, on one of his travels, the storyteller comes across the gruesome scene of a murder and encounters an abducted ten-year-old orphan, Johanna. To reunite the girl with her only surviving kin, patient Jefferson is willing to brave the perils of the long journey back and risk life and limb for Johanna. But, amid harsh territories once divided by war, what will it take to find this orphan a home?”
