Sunday School Discussion Follow-Up

Are you an adult Sunday School class teacher, or a Sunday School class leader? Do you have an interest in the adult Sunday School program here at Neffsville MC? You are invited to participate in a round table discussion that will be held on Sunday, October 31st in the Fellowship Hall from 11:30 to 12:30 following the Morning Worship. Alan Miller will be leading the discussion.
In our recently completed Sunday School survey, most respondents view our Sunday School classes as a time to study and learn as well as a time to build connections and community. But where do we go from here? What do we need to retain? What might need to change? How might we better support and grow the adult Sunday School program? What might we be missing? What questions could or should we be asking? These questions will form the basis for our round-table discussion. Please come and share your thoughts. 

 

Youth Ministries Leader Search Update

The job description is now available here (Oct. 20, 2021)

The Youth Pastor/Director of Youth Ministries Search Committee has completed the feedback/discovery phase of the search process. Thank you to everyone who participated in the information gathering sessions. Through conversations with the Elders, the Search Committee, and you, the congregation, we have developed a candidate profile and key results for the position. Over the next few weeks, we will post the position and launch an advertising campaign to attract qualified candidates. We will use both the national job listing sites and ministry-specific sites, including the various Mennonite organizations and institutions. If you are aware of an individual who may be interested in the position, please guide them to our website. We appreciate your prayers as we work to identify our next Youth Pastor/Director of Youth Ministries.

 

Wednesday Night Out – Fall 2021

The Wednesday Night Out (WNO) Team has been working hard to create opportunities for us to connect and have come up with this excellent plan. For now, the plan is to have two meals a month. The food will be prepared and available for pickup at the carport. You are then invited to eat at the picnic tables in the North Grove. Remember to bring lawn chairs in case we run out of picnic table space. A special note to parents of children entering 5th grade and below. For now, programming for children will not be part of the WNO evening.

The meal sign-up is under the Registration menu above.
