Let me tell you about what is going on in Gorham!

The after school program resumed November 13. Each Tuesday we meet from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the Gorham Community Center. The program is designed for children in k- 6th grade, although there have been a few older and younger who are attending. We are excited for everyone who attends!

Each session begins as the children arrive with an activity that introduces the daily Bible focus. Some children arrive off the bus at 4 p.m. and others at 4:30 p.m. We have snacks and refreshments at the ready. After everyone arrives, the Bible study begins. We are using the same Bible study that we use for our children on Sunday morning at The Ridge Church.

Following the Bible study, the children complete the activity page. This is a take home page so the parents can visualize what the children are learning. Another component of our weekly study is to learn and review a memory verse.

In addition to the Bible Study, there is a mission study. Currently we are learning about the people who live in Mumbai, India. Our meeting concludes with an activity, game, or craft that will reinforce the lesson for the day.

We have experienced great support from the community. Last Tuesday’s attendance included 18 children and 6 leaders for a total of 24.

Please let our weekly leaders know how much you appreciate their ministry in Gorham: Allie and Lisa Hottensen, Angie James, Avis Barrett, Matt Philips, and Dennis Howell. And thank you to those who provide refreshments each week.

Please keep this ministry in your prayers. We will conclude this session on December 18 and hope to begin again in February 2019 as an Off-Campus Sunday School.
