Middle School Sunday School

DSC06177WHAT IS SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS AT HOPE?

If this is going to be your very first Sunday morning visiting HOPE Church then you are at the right place. We are so eager to make your experience here an enjoyable one. HOPEʼs Middle School Sunday School is a nurturing atmosphere of acceptance, love and open inquiry as we journey together on the path of faith in God and His teachings. This class is where lifelong friendships are formed and personal spiritual growth is nurtured in an encouraging and uplifting environment.

This Middle School program, grades 6 through 8, consists of Bible stories with a blending of a lesson from the Bible, conversations that lead to Q&A from the students and an uplifting activity and game which truly gets the students involved and quite energetic about the lesson they have studied. Parents are welcome to sit in any time.

IMG_1412WHAT TIME IS SUNDAY SCHOOL AND WHERE DO I GO?

This group gathers on Sundays (September-June) from 9-10am in Room 11. Our helpful greeters in HOPE’s lobby will be glad to point you (or even walk you down) to our room on Sunday mornings.
Note for parents: When you send your student to Sunday School, please make sure they know where you want them to meet you afterward if you do not choose to come to our room for pick-up as there is no check-out process for Middle School students.

DSC09676WHO IS MRS. JOYCE GUTELIUS?

As a former educational teacher in the public school system, a present adjunct teacher at Eastern University, Sunday School teacher, Youth leader, and Bible teacher Mrs. Joyce Gutelius has done it all!  She is one of the most creative teachers we have ever seen!

Her beliefs have always been:

  • To say thanks to God in some way, every day,
  • To know and teach that Jesus loves her and His children in which she serves (Proverbs 22:6)
  • To be a positive role model,
  • To be driven by values and beliefs,
  • To teach in such a way that her students have fun learning,
  • And finally, to know that happiness is in heaven but the joy is in the journey, and encouraging her students to know it too!
