Sunday School teachers needed!
The Discipleship/Education Committee would like to the congregation on the staffing requirements for school. In order to comply with best practices for
our children’s faith development and safety, we are expected maintain two adults in each classroom setting. Currently, need three helpers weekly to fulfill this expectation. If do not accomplish this goal of the two-adult per room , we will reduce classrooms to one large room for thru fifth grade and a pre-school class. Any will receive information and training for this role our deepest appreciation. Please prayerfully consider forward to enjoy and share the faith development of precious children. This ministry and service opportunity core to the vision of UMC Vista for our future. Jesus said,
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matt. :14) Contact Margene Haase or Beckie Henselmeier if are called to this ministry.
