Our Sunday School Program is growing! We have a new influx of young people and Colleen has been doing a fantastic job as our Director of Family Ministries to create dynamic programming. We planning on adding one more classroom for our youngest children, and are looking to hire two new teachers to connect with our kids on Sunday mornings. Our classes for our students from preschool to second grade are taught in the Godly Play style which emphasizes story telling and creativity. If you are interested in applying or if you know someone who would be a good fit, please make sure to contact me via email at pastorchris@firstchurchsomerville.org

Blessings and peace,
Pastor Chris
