July and August for preschool through Grade 5
Summer Sunday School is offered as a faith-based casual option for children during the service over the summer months. We combine kindergarten through to the Grade 5 children for large-group Sunday School. This age range presents its own challenges as the youngest child is at such a different stage from the oldest. Since we no longer hire summer interns and we have so few youth to serve as youth leaders, those facilitating Sunday School have their hands full. Their willingness to accept this challenge for one Sunday in the summer is greatly appreciated by the regular teachers who have a break during the summer. With fewer children at WVBC and summer being a time for family vacations we had very few volunteers available in the summer of 2018, so our faithful team of leaders offered their continued service through the summer in order to provide consistency. Thank you to Carey Bleay and Karen Schoeber who were able to teach while I took my holiday in August.
