It’s hard to believe that the summer is over and the school year has begun. Signs of the new school year are evident throughout Charlottesville — yellow school buses, UVA students walking on grounds and at the Corner, more traffic, and long lines in restaurants and grocery stores! My children started classes last week, and they are back into the routine of doing homework every school night and taking tests at the end of the week. It’s good to see them back in school and learning new things. Education is so very important to the welfare of our children and their future.
Likewise, religious education is so very important for the growth and maturity of followers of Jesus Christ. After all, the word “disciple” means being a learner and a pupil.
Therefore, I invite you to get involved in our Sunday morning Bible study classes. A full list of our classes can be found here.
On Sunday, September 8, we will recognize all our Sunday morning Bible study teachers in worship. We will also give out Bibles to our new First Graders.
In addition to Sunday morning classes, our graded children’s choirs and our Wednesday night programming will resume next week.
I hope you’ll take advantage of the educational and fellowship opportunities offered by the church starting in September. I’ll see you in class!
