Week 2 Went Well

Week 2 of religious education went very well. I remembered most of the kids’ names (next week…no name tags!) and they continued to be very well-behaved. We went to church for an opening prayer service and the pastor did a nice job of speaking to the kids about the upcoming year and talking about Jesus as the key to our salvation.

Next week, I will be getting a new student with special needs (hearing impairment). The DRE has assigned an adult to be a faith companion for him. She will attend class with him and assist in any way he needs. I look forward to this opportunity and ask the Holy Spirit to help me to meet his special needs and the needs of all of my participants.
