Ticonderoga church starting Sunday school

TICONDEROGA — Sunday school at the First United Methodist Church at 1045 Wicker St. will be starting again on Sunday during the 10:30 a.m. service.

Children in preschool through high school can attend the beginning of the 10:30 service in the church sanctuary to hear the children’s message given by the Rev. Scott Tyler and then go to their respective age group’s classes, where a Bible-based curriculum will be taught. Crafts, songs and life lessons will be part of the Sunday school experience. After Sunday school, children will join their families for the fellowship coffee time.

The youth are also encouraged to participate as acolytes during the service. New this year will be a youth choir for children in first grade and up. Rehearsals will be held each week immediately after the worship service at 11:45 a.m. in the choir room, starting on Sunday, Sept. 15. The youth bell choir performs occasionally during the year and will start weekly rehearsals at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, with the adult bell choir following at 7:30. All choirs are under the direction of Grace Trombley, the church’s music director/organist.

The youth group, for those in grades 3 and up, will hold twice-monthly meetings on Sunday evenings. Under the direction of Tyler and other adult leaders, the group will start its new year on Sept. 8, when they host the fellowship dinner from 4:30 to 6 p.m. New members to the choirs and youth group are always welcome.

Everyone is welcome to attend morning worship at First United Methodist Church. Communion is served each week at the 8:30 a.m. service. The 10:30 a.m. worship service is family-oriented with communion served on the first Sunday of each month.
