St. Peter’s Sunday School
S u n d a y S c h o o l N e w s ! !
Sunday school classes are offered during the morning service for all ages from September to June. Our coordinator is Myrlene Boken @ 705-456-6731.
For the month of February, the children are studying Daniel and the Lion's Den. This is a story about the faith of Daniel overcoming fear and persecution. With so much in the news lately about persecuting others, our children need to understand that God is always with them and that God supports them and loves them.

This year the children will be putting together Easter Gift Baskets for the Seniors on the 3rd floor of the Seniors Integrated Care Unit at RVH. Many seniors who are hard to place in Long Term Care, live here. Many do not have a lot of family visiting them. We have been in contact with the Recreation Director and they would love to receive something for these seniors. They often fall through the cracks of outreach programs because people are not aware that this unit exists. They could use 6 baskets for women and 6 baskets for men. They like: shampoo and conditioner, hand cream, word search books with large letters, chocolates, cookies, lip bahm. We are hoping to have the children make some paper flowers to decorate the baskets and they will make cards to wish the residents a Happy Easter.
It is important that the children are involved in purchasing the items for these baskets.. The children will be making sandwiches and dessert on March 4th for the soup luncheon. We are hoping that we can earn some money to help with the costs of these baskets. Supply Lists will be coming out in the next few weeks. A basket will be at the back of the church for the children’s donations.
Christmas Pageant on Dec. 17th.
During Lent, the children made “Blessing Bags” for the homeless at the David Busby Centre in Barrie. The children used their allowance to buy items as needed. They also put money in the jar for purchasing items. The bags were packaged on Easter Sunday.

The children study the stories in four labs:
The Computer Lab (The Church Mouse Pad), The Cooking Lab (Martha's Bistro), The Video Lab (Holy Word Theater) and the Art Lab (Thou Art Studios) We have a large group of talented volunteers who teach every Sunday. All teachers are screened. In addition to the time in Sunday School, each child will have an opportunity to use their gifts and talents in the church service throughout the year. Myrlene Boken is the Sunday school coordinator and can be reached at 705-456-6731 if you have any questions.
All children rotate throughout the various labs, from preschool to grade six. Older children have the opportunity of worshiping in the service or they can volunteer in the Sunday school to help with the younger classes.
Feb. 14th, 2016: The children in Sunday school finished tying off the edges on the quilt they are donating to Youth Haven. This project has helped the children realize the need in the community for something as basic as a quilt that we all take for granted. Thanks to all the children who worked on this.
Feb. 7th, 2016: Cameron puts some money he has earned into the jar at church as part of the Lenten project for the Sunday school. Children are earning money by doing chores for their parents and others, collecting what they can for the food bank. WTG Cameron.

Feb. 7th, 2016 the children made some donations for Youth Haven. Each child put together a gift and decorated the cards with their names and ages. This is our children learning how to give of their time and talents to those in our community. Below are three pictures taken of the gifts and two of our children, Emma and Jase Williamson, showing the gifts they made.
The four new labs are featured above. The children are enjoying a different lab each Sunday as they learn about the bible stories.
- Each year there is a Palm Sunday Parade. The procession leaves from the local Churchill Library and makes its way to the church for 9:15 service. This is a family and community event that is not to be missed. The Hosanna banner leads the way, while participants wave their palms. This year the date is March 20th.
- Every summer the children and youth join together for VBS (Vacation Bible School).
- Family outings are planned throughout the year.
