The Senior Sunday School is open to children from Primary 4 upwards.
APRIL - MAY 2013
After the excitement of Easter and the holidays there was more excitement to come on return to Sunday School...what a surprise it was to find 3 beautiful lambs centre stage throughout the service. Catherine and Rachel Mitchell told us all about lambing and shepherding and it was very interesting. Later we learned in our lesson that God referred to himself as “The Good Shepherd” and indeed how true that was and is till this day!
Our focus for the remainder of this term is to learn more about Samuel. Hannah his mother was desperate for a child and when her prayer was answered and she was blessed with Samuel, she fulfilled her promise to give him back to God. Samuel grew up to become a great man of God, serving him faithfully throughout his life. Like the Israelites, who were distracted by what was happening around them, the children today have many distractions but we hope they too can be guided by Samuel’s example.
The children will be going on their annual visit to the Compass Christian Centre on the 19th May and along with the adult leaders, are looking forward to it very much – let’s hope there’s no snow!
If you are Primary 4 or older you are most welcome to come along and join us on a Sunday morning. We meet in the front pew just before the service starts at 11.00am.
Come along and join us on a Sunday morning from 11.00 am.

OUTING to the Compass Centre June 2012
The Senior Sunday School children and their leaders had an enjoyable end of term outing to the Compass Christian Centre, Glenshee. The children started with various team building activities, where they had to think and work as a team to complete the activities successfully. It was challenging at first but they got there in the end! Even the leaders had a go at walking with the big skis and it definitely wasn’t as easy as it looked!
After this it was kayaking, where the children plus Mr Mitchell and Mrs Cooper took to the water. This was tricky for some but a whole lot of fun nevertheless. Towards the end of the session the children had fun sliding into the water both with their kayaks and without and finally jumping in off the pier.
We were all ready for our picnic lunch after which the children and leaders were presented with a New Testament, to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, from the Primary Sunday School.
A fun day out was had by all!
