I am excited to say that my small church is finally restarting Sunday school June 6!
In the past year we have had three large families move away and one family move to a church that had programs that met their needs better, so we know we are starting back with 20 fewer children. But there is much excitement about getting back to "normal" among the remaining families and there is one family that started coming during the shutdown that is also committed to joining us. Of course, the downside is that the families that left were our older elementary students and middle schoolers, so we are back to being primarily a preschool and early elementary program.
We are planning a scaled back relaunch for summer, and will celebrate with a lunch at church for the first time in over a year (food brought in rather than a potluck).
No plans yet for the start of the school year - we are waiting to see the response this summer and praying that more volunteers will step forward.
As a small church volunteer, I am looking forward to brainstorming ideas with others for a splashy rally-day-type Homecoming launch at the start of the school year in August!
