Summer Sunday School
Join Miss Brenda this summer for summer Sunday school, starting June 12th! This summer we will be exploring Heifer International using the Animal Crackers curriculum.
Heifer International, based in Rutland Ma.,  is a nonprofit working to eradicate poverty and hunger through sustainable, values-based holistic community development. Heifer distributes animals, along with agricultural and values-based training, to families in need around the world as a means of providing self-sufficiency. Recipients must agree to “pass on the gift” by sharing animal offspring, as well as the skills and knowledge of animal husbandry and agricultural training with other impoverished families.
The Animal Crackers curriculum  “helps children see themselves as part of the global family and gain a deeper appreciation of the ways in which Heifer helps people, animals and plants live in harmony as God’s good creation.” Each week the children will explore a specific animal. At the end of the summer the children will have an opportunity to visit a family farm and to help choose animals to sponsor through Heifer International.
