The Adult Sunday School Class led by Jim Wood continues to meet on Sunday mornings. Attendance has increased over the past year and appreciation goes to Jim Wood for his continued leadership with our education program.
YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS * is led by Betty Turini and Donna Sirmons, who follow the NBA (New Bible Adventures) program, reviewing a Bible story for a period of four weeks through different genre, i.e., drama, videos, games, crafts.
KIDS KORNER * The Kids Korner (formerly known as the nursery) received a mini-makeover this year and everything is bright and cheery! Children of all ages are welcomed by the attendant and will find books and toys appropriate for their age group.
WPC Child Policy Guidelines * require that each Child Care Provider, staff member or volunteer has successfully undergone a background check. This includes Youth Sunday School, Kids Korner, or any event where a staff member or volunteer is responsible for children in their care.
The Media Center is available to all. Two computers, a copier, DVD and video players are all functioning and ready for use. Resources include many books, DVDs videos and instructional programs. The room can be used for long term projects as well as meetings.
Our pastor, John Underwood, began a Wednesday morning study that will continue through 2017 titled, “Through the New Testament in a Year.”
Previously, Rev. Genevieve and Doc DeHoog led Bible studies throughout the year including, “The Gospel of John” and “Who Were Jesus’ Apostles?” In late November, we had to say goodbye and wished them well as Rev. Genevieve accepted a position with a church in northern Georgia.
WOMEN’S CIRCLE & BIBLE STUDY
Well known as the oldest Bible study class at Woodlawn, it was created out of necessity in the 1950’s. Many women worked during the days and had children they couldn’t leave unattended, so a number of them joined together for an evening Bible study that began with each bringing a covered dish. The group became known as the Women’s Circle Bible Study and continues to meet the second Tuesday evening each month September through May with a covered dish dinner, Bible study and friendship….come join us!
WEDNESDAYS AT WOODLAWN (W@W)
Wednesdays at Woodlawn continues to meet the first Wednesday of each month. Dinner is provided at 5:30 PM and a program begins at 6:15 PM. Lectio Devina meets every Wednesday, November through April. The programs on Wednesday include speakers, games, skits, and crafts. Program planning tries to be inclusive of the various church committees, i.e., Outreach – caroling at a local nursing home, Missions – guest speakers from CASA and DayStar, Worship – Ash Wednesday services. We are always open to suggestions, so please let us know your thoughts and ideas.
