Guiding all people into a relationship with Jesus Christ
Greeting in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
I wanted to take this opportunity to briefly introduce myself to you. My name is Lanny Ash and I am the Sunday School Superintendent at California United Church of Christ. I attend this church with my wife, Ellen, and our two teenage children, Isaac and Elizabeth. Our son, Dylan, also grew up in this church and is currently serving in the United States Navy. He returns home with his wife, Jasmine, to visit his church family whenever he can.
Although it has been a tough year with the Pandemic, our Sunday school has adjusted very well. We meet every Sunday morning from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. We have classes that range from pre-kindergarten, school age, young adults, middle-aged adults, and distinguished adults. There is a class for everyone! In addition to Sunday school classes, there are many other opportunities for involvement. Planning is already in the works for this year’s Vacation Bible School, the annual fall party, and the Christmas Eve Program, to name a few. I hope you will join our Sunday school family soon. I know you will be enriched by the friends you meet and the spiritual learning you will encounter.
Sunday School Superintendent
The purpose of our Sunday School program is to bring people closer to God through Bible study, prayer and fellowship. Classes are available for all ages. We invite you to visit and find one that fits you best and incorporate it into your Sunday morning routine. We meet from 9:30-10:20 each Sunday.
Classes are available for age 2 to 100+
A nursery is available for children under 2.
Or if you prefer, children under 2 are welcome to join you in an adult class.
See you each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. ALL ARE WELCOME!
We are excited about the future of our Sunday School and hope you will join us every Sunday you are available to attend.
Sunday School is in the Ministry of Transforming Lives
We are called to serve God. To lead others to salvation through God’s son Jesus Christ. And to offer prayers, programs, and financial support to those who worship within and beyond the walls of our church so that all might have the opportunity to have a personal relationship with our Savior and Lord.
