This year we are returning to an in-personSunday School program during the 10:30 a.m. serviceas well as continue with a “Sunday School” program on Wednesdays at 4:30pm via zoom!
With everyone’s busy schedules and feelings about safety, we are happy to offer more options for children to learn about the Bible and our loving Heavenly Father. We began on Sundays in October with teachers, Gail Achilles and Anita Halpern and then on Wednesdays with teachers, Nancy Gansner, Gail Achilles and Anna Friedrich. We will be using the Whirl curriculum, following lessons that go along with the lectionary (the lessons that are read each week.)
Please come on Sunday morning or contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org you would like to be part of the Wednesday zoom class. (Please make sure we have your email address so we can send you the zoom link. Materials will also be sent to those participating on zoom. A Bible will be provided to your child if they do not have one. Please let us know.)
The lessons for November are:
Oct. 31 & Nov. 3: The First Commandment Mark 12:28-34
Nov. 7 & 10: The Widows Offering Mark 10:2-16
Nov. 14 & 17: The Temple Destruction Mark 10:17-31
Nov. 21 only: Pilate Accuses Jesus John 18:33-37
There will be no Wednesday Bible Study on Wednesday, November 24, 2021.
Vacation Bible School 2022
We didn’t have Vacation Bible School this past August but are looking to resume in-person VBS in 2022. We are considering possibly changing the time to the evenings. We are looking for your input. Should we have VBS in the mornings from 9am to noon (which would include a snack) or 10am to noon or 5pm to 7pm with no snack? Would you be willing to volunteer that week? It may be only November, but we need to start planning now because August 8-12, 2022 will be here before we know it. Please contact Melissa Prunkel or the church office with your suggestions or to volunteer to help. Thank you, Church Family!
This Bible Study for adults is studying 1 and 2 Timothy. They will continue on Zoom for the foreseeable future. To join us, please contact Janet for the Zoom link.

SHARING CHRISTMAS WITH “Gabe,” “Savannah,” and “Malik” FROM MARTIN LUTHER SCHOOLMartin Luther School in Plymouth Meeting was founded as an orphanage. It now provides a home, treatment, education and other services for boys and girls, ages 6 to 14, who have experienced past traumas, including abuse, neglect and poverty. All services are provided in a nurturing environment that promotes recovery, resilience and, where possible, families reunited.
Their new name is “Gemma Services”—where hope shines.
Your social ministry team is asking you to support the following children.
Gabe (boy): age 11 - Basketball, basketball tights, Lego set
Savannah (girl): age 8 - Stuffed dog, LOL Surprise!, Doll, Book about pets
Malik (boy): age 10 - Remote control car, Rubik’s cube, matchbox cars
To support this ministry with a deadline of Sunday, December 5, we are asking that you send your checks to either me at 110 Country View Lane, Chalfont, PA 18914 made out to “Faith Lutheran Church” --- or – send them directly to the Church at 615 Cowpath Road, P. O. Box 182, Montgomeryville, PA 18936. Please mark the “Memo” line as “Martin Luther School”. Thank You.
Since we are also meeting at church, there will be a collection on Sunday, December 5. One of our children will take the collection after the service.
Our goal is $150.
Your Christian love for these children is most appreciated.
