Rankin Sunday School Jan/Feb News

Can’t believe we are into the second month of the New Year already! Although it seems a distant memory now - we hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and New Year. The children all did a fantastic job of their nativity show and we would like to say a huge thank you to all the children, parents and members of the congregation who helped us make it such a success.

A fabulous total of £101.51 was collected in donations after the nativity family service. The children have decided to donate this money to the charity SENSE this year, which helps children, young people and adults who are deaf-blind, have sensory impairments or have complex needs. We are hoping to build contacts with the service in Hamilton and will keep you updated with our progress.

In January, our focus has been ‘The Church and its People’. The children have loved finding out about the important items and structures of the church and the building and the history of the church. The quiz sheets provided some interesting facts! We hope those in the congregation who took part enjoyed it as much as the children did! We learned that the most important part of the church is its people. We hope you managed to add your name to our display – if not please ask one of the Sunday School who will show you what to do!

After the February holiday our theme will be ‘Jesus and the Wilderness’. The children will be involved in a variety of activities to help them learn about the stories in the Bible exploring the 40 days and 40 nights before Palm Sunday. This will link to our family service on Sunday 25th March where the children will be sharing what they have learned in the church (more information to follow in March).

The Sunday School is currently looking at ideas for a fundraising activity. If anyone in the congregation has any suggestions for us, they would be greatly appreciated. We will keep you posted!

Many thanks
