Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. ~ Proverbs 22:6.
It is with that verse in mind that we invite you to join us for our 2017-18 Sunday School year at St. Matthew! Our season will start with a Rally Day celebration on September 10th, complete with balloons and other fun prizes!
This year we welcome a new program, Deep Blue Kids, to lead us through our studies. We start our day together with fellowship, the story video for the day and, of course, snacks (!!). The middle school & pre-confirmation group (4th through 8th grade) will be guided through the lessons, discussions and Bible games to dig deeper into God's Word! Younger children (preK through 3rd grade) will be taught through stories, games, arts & crafts and music! We're looking forward to having a great time with the new program.
We will meet in the Youth room after church, approximately 10:15. Classes will go until 11:15!
Informational meeting being held at Faith Lutheran in Carpentersville on September 9th at 9:00am.

This is an informational meeting to learn about the program which will begin in late September/early October.
