Welcome and Goals

Whether you have been worshipping here for a short time or for many years, we welcome you and your family to the Sunday school program at Acton Congregational Church.

Sunday School is a valuable component of your child's Christian Education. We know that you and your family face pressures and demands on your time, but our hope is that you will intentionally set aside time on Sunday mornings for church, giving your children the gift of discovering God's word and guiding them towards being compassionate followers of Jesus Christ for the benefit of building God's Kingdom.

Much of what your children will come to know about God and the Christian faith they will learn first and best at home, from you. You are teaching all the time, by your faith, prayers and by your example. Remember that you are not alone; you are part of the Body of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit – we are all helping each other to grow, in the same direction, closer to God. Thank you for entrusting your children to us on Sunday mornings. I sincerely look forward to getting know them as well as partnering with you. Together we will endeavor to pass the good news of Jesus Christ on to the next generation.

Blessings to you,
Merrill Noble, Director of Children and Faith Formation Ministries
