☐ Sunday Connect small group teacher

  • 10:10am – 11:05am. This is the youth Sunday School hour, we call it Sunday Connect because we hope the students connect to each other and to God during this time. Could be every week, every other week or once a month. We start with a game and then share our names with each other and then move into small groups. Curriculum changes depending on the time of year, the sermon series, etc. Both HS and MS break into separate groups and we’d like to have two teachers for each.
