Reply to "Discussing the Return, Rebuild, and Renewing of Sunday School as we come out of the pandemic"

What the return to Sunday school has been like at Faith Presbyterian, the small EPC church in Covington, Louisiana, where I am a volunteer:

Our church resumed in-person worship in a tent in May of 2020 and moved to indoor worship (spread out) in July 2020. (Worship was also streamed online for those who did not yet feel comfortable attending in person. Online streaming ended earlier this month. )

For a variety of reasons, we did not resume any sort of Sunday school until June 2, 2021. (In the interim, I was staying in touch with "my" preschool/K class with letters, packages, and one porch drop-off.)

Once people were feeling comfortable gathering again (and we were able to organize volunteers) it was decided to go ahead and launch Sunday school for children and adults on June 2 rather than waiting another few months until the start of the new school year.

I am happy to say that our June 2 Sunday school launch has been well-received, and all are attending who were regular attenders before the shutdown -- that is, all that are still around. We had 3 large families move out of town and another family moved to another church with a less-restrictive Covid policy....  But one new family began attending this past year and they have now started attending Sunday school, too!

The children's Sunday school teachers were asked to wear masks the first few weeks, since children under twelve cannot yet be vaccinated; children did not wear masks. But the parents all say they are ok with no masks, so they are no longer required. All of the adults have been vaccinated.

Attendance has been a bit irregular, with summer travel, and that was expected. But I am so happy to be able to spend time with "my little friends" again!

Praying for a good re-launch for all of you!
