Regular Sunday School sessions are over for this year. Over the summer holidays, parents and grandparents are welcome to use the play/craft/book space downstairs with their young children.  Also there are activity packs available in the “Sunday School Basket” that you will find on the bench as you enter the foyer from the parking lot.  These can be enjoyed by children upstairs during the church service.  We will resume Sunday School once again on September 9. Until then, happy summer! Janice Benoit (Sunday School co-ordinator)
