Opportunity knocks…and on the other side of the door are the children of our community! This is our chance to teach and mentor the kids in our congregation, and also to invite other children into Sunday School. We are starting an exciting new Sparkhouse  curriculum this fall, with all the lesson plans and resources available on-line. However, I cannot do this alone! We need two to three other volunteers to teach Sunday School, and the commitment would be only once a month. If you are willing for an exciting new venture, please contact me at 613-928-9921, or [email protected]. Let’s open a new door for these children together! – Pat Greenhorn
