This year of continuing COVID pandemic restrictions, the Sunday School has not met in person. We had hoped to reconvene in the fall of 2021, but then the numbers went up again. At the beginning of the school year, at one of our in person services at the Kirkland Town Park, there was an opportunity for the children to bring their backpacks to be blessed by Father John.
Meanwhile, each Sunday School family receives a weekly email with web links. These links generally include the weekly lectionary readings from the International Children’s Bible, a Sermons4Kids story, a YouTube children’s video of one of the readings, usually the Gospel for the day, a Children’s Worship Bulletin, several coloring pages, and a related simple craft activity to do at home. Contact the church office (office@stjamesclinton) if your family would like to receive these.
For the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany seasons, goody bags were delivered to 11 families with children from age 4-18. Inside were a variety of seasonal items including an Advent calendar and Advent wreath and candles, Christmas decorations, candy, Nativity stickers, activities and coloring pages for each season.
