Pathfinders (Sunday School) CHANGES – There are new and exciting changes for the 2022-2023 Pathfinder school year. We are trying out a hybrid worship service for our Pathfinders this year. Youth will spend the first approximately 15 minutes of Sunday service with their family. Youth will leave worship after the first hymn, gather downstairs for their lesson and craft, returning to the sanctuary prior to communion so that they can commune with their family. Following Sunday service and during coffee fellowship, Pathfinders can re-gather downstairs for a short time (5-10 minutes) of music.
Why are we making this change?
We want to create opportunities for parents to engage in worship distraction free and/or have the opportunity for parents to be part of their children’s faith formation by leading a lesson without having to commit to leading full-time or spend an extra amount of time at church on their Sundays. As stated before, we are in need of at least 3 Pathfinder (Sunday School) leaders each Sunday, so if this new change allows you to help fill this volunteer need (even if only occasionally) we’d love to have you! Please let Elizabeth know.
Our hope is that this change allows you as church members to connect to your faith in a manner that you’ve been needing or missing. We hope to help you foster peer relationships with other parents and families.
