“If you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way, then you will find your joy in the Lord!” -Isaiah 58:13,14

What is Unnecessary is Essential:
The Serious Play of Poetry and Faith
Many people say they don’t like poetry, especially “religious poetry.” The fact that they’re saying this is probably a testimony to their good taste because when most people say they don’t like poetry, the poetry they’ve read has tended to be bad. Really bad.
Today’s class is a study in reading poetry, good poetry, really good poetry. The poetry on which we will focus most of our attention today is about God or faith, but few would categorize it as “religious poetry.” My hope is that by the time we have finished the class, you will want to explore more such poetry for yourselves.

World Religions Viewed Through Two (or More) Lenses
We invite church members and interested others to join us in exploring five world religions. Neither of us is an expert on any of these religions, but we want to learn more, and we hope you might also. This will not be World Religions 101 Lite. Our aim is not to “teach” the “facts” about each of these faith communities. Rather, our goal is to increase our understanding of, and appreciation for, religions (including our own) that have large numbers of adherents around the globe. Now the notorious small print warning: This class has more suggested reading than the average SCAPC adult Sunday School class. However, we believe that you will find both suggested books rewarding. Perhaps more importantly, neither book is required. We welcome all on this journey

Children’s Sunday School Classes: Sunday mornings, 9:30-10:15 a.m.
Growing in Grace and Gratitude (3 years old – 3rd grade) – We will explore Old Testament stories that reflect worship – ways in which God meets us, Calls us, and send us.
Students are divided into three age groups:
3 years old through Pre-K – Meet in room 213
Kindergarten through 1st grade – Meet in room 212
2nd through 3rd grades – Meet in room 214
Challenger Class (grades 4 & 5) – Challenger Classroom 2nd Floor
4th and 5th graders are curious about their faith journey, have questions about what it means to be a Reformed Presbyterian and want to help others. This spirited group will work through all of these! We will study what it means to be a Reformed Presbyterian, the 10 commandments, Psalm 23, Jesus’ parables and the Lord’s Prayer. Our fall retreat will be November 1-3 at Tickfaw State Park. For information about this group, contact Michele Murphy at Michele@scapc.org
Sunday Nursery Care (0-3 years old)
Our experienced sitter staff invites all children under the age of three into our fully equipped nursery and playroom. Our classrooms met all State requirements and we strive to maintain a safe and enriching environment for our youngest visitors. The staff is trained on church regulations and guidelines. The Nursery is open each Sunday from 8:15 a.m. – Noon and is located in the classroom off of Frampton Fellowship Hall on the first floor. Parents sign in children and check out a pager. Please label all of your children’s supplies and give any specific directions for your child directly to the sitters.
If you have questions regarding any of these classes, contact Director of Christian Education, Michele Murphy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
