                                         Sunday School
    Neepawa United Church provides a Sunday School program that offers a warm, supportive and fun environment in which young people can learn about and grow in their faith. Thanks to Kim Smith and her helpers for organizing the Sunday School program which is described below. Any children are welcome to attend!
Teachers of Sunday School:
Kim Smith: Kim has been the main Sunday School teachers for many years. She is the Life Skills teacher at the local high school as well as the mother of 3 children.
Sandra Wiebe: Sandra is new to our Sunday School family.  She is a doctor in our community as well as the mother of 4 children.  We are excited to have her join us this year.
Vicky Elgert:Vicky has been a Sunday School teacher for a couple of years assisting Kim as well as teaching on her own.  She is in Grade 10 at NACI.  She is full of great ideas and loves working with the children.

                Goal of Sunday School
 Through learning stories of the bible we teach the children that God loves, teaches and supports them. 
Ages/Grades
   - children aged 4 to Grade 7 with the different activities varying for all ages.
Themes
  The theme this year is "Learning from God’s Creatures”. We will be talking about different animals from A-Z and how we can learn about God through the creatures.
Activities
  Readings, coloring sheets, puzzles, arts and crafts are usually all involved.
The structure of lessons is:  Lord's Prayer, offering, birthdays if there are any, then our lesson which involves reading a bible quote and a bible story with discussion and then we do a craft. If the craft is too hard for some children, there are coloring sheets for them to do. 

Special Activities
  We do 2 special activities each year.  Our Sunday School leads the church service on one of the Sundays (usually White Gift Sunday) at Christmas time.  Usually this program involves Christmas singing as well as some type of Christmas play. 
Our other special activity is Children's Day which ends our year.  We once again lead the church service. This involves more singing and some type of play based on the Sunday School theme that year.  During Children's Day the children also get their certificates and any students that are in their final year of Sunday School are presented with a bible from the Sunday School.
