Sunday School Enrollment Form 2022

Welcome, and thank you for accessing our web-site and looking for information on our
Sunday school program.  We will be using Bible Story Basics for our curriculum this year.  The curriculum looks at the different Bible stories that we all have come to know: Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah,
Jesus, etc.  As we go throughout the year, we will also add other teachings that coincide
with the different holidays we celebrate as Christians.

So, if you are looking at Sunday school information you’ve already taken one step
towards raising your child in the Christian faith.  Sunday school should add to what is
taught at home. Ideally, the church and family work together to educate children in faith. 
Sunday school plants spiritual seeds and spiritual strength for growth. 

Every Sunday everyone starts in the sanctuary at 10:00 am.  Children are excused to
attend class after the children's message.  Church and Sunday school are over about
11:00 am.  The first Sunday of every month is Holy Communion – children stay with their
families and are excused after Communion. Our Communion table is open to all and it is
up to you as the parent/guardian if you want your child to join in.

Our goal this year is to reintroduce and introduce children back into church.  We hope to
get them excited about learning about God, Jesus and their faith through fellowship,
friendship, and fun.  Learning about Christianity is about asking questions and finding
out the truths.  If the teacher doesn’t know the answer, we will find it out.  We want our
children to know that there is no question that is silly or stupid.  Growing your spiritual
faith takes years, and life presents challenges.  We want our children to learn and grow
knowing that God is there for us, good times, and bad times.  We are never alone.
If you would like to learn with your child, we welcome you to sit in on a class or feel free
to teach a class.  It is easy to plan a lesson with the step-by-step curriculum.
COVID has everyone worried, and we are following State and conference guidelines to
keep everyone as safe as possible.  We will try to space out the children as best we can,
and ask if you or your child is sick, please stay home.

Pastor Tara and I will answer any questions you have, and we hope you will join us at
church and Sunday school.

Contact the church at 860-875-6562, you can leave a message.
In Christian Love,
Linda Shivers- Director of Christian Education

Have a great week and remember to call someone you love!

Rockville United Methodist Church is a small but very active church located at 142 Grove Street, Rockville, CT 06066. Our members volunteer to help the community year round. Sunday service is at 10:00 am. Guests are always welcome to our services. Our Fellowship hall is available for rent; we have full kitchen facilities.

Church Closings
If our church has to cancel a class, activity or event (examples: worship service, Sunday school, choir practice, dinner event) due to inclement weather, etc., we will post the cancellation notice online at WFSB Channel 3 and on TV at NBC Channel 30 (WVIT). This will be our way of communicating cancellations throughout the winter season. Likely notices are: “No religious ed.” (Sunday school canceled), “Event cancelled” or “Closed.”
