Meet our Sunday School Director

We are so happy to introduce our Director of Sunday School, Cathy Opdyke. Teaching is in Cathy's DNA, and she began as a Sunday School teacher when oldest daughter Rachel - now a student at Montclair State University - was just 5 years old. 

She has continued that love of teaching as an aide in a special needs classroom over the last 15 years, and can hardly wait to welcome our next generation to our new Sunday School program for kids aged 4-12.

Each lesson will offer active experiences that teach in ways that kids remember, and encourage them to use what they've learned. There will also be take-home handouts, so they can share what they've learned with friends and family.

Weekly themes include:
*We are special to God
*God keeps his promises
*God will guide us
*Sometimes God surprises us!
*God wants us to be helpful and kind -- even when no one else is watching
*Families are important to God
*God will help us through hard times

Bring the kids, and come meet Cathy and the team this Sunday at 9:30 am in the Chapel for our Open House session. We look forward to welcoming you!
