Parents and Educators are invited to join Westminster Presbyterian Church in an exciting educational opportunity this summer.

This story-based curriculum presents a joyful way for children to learn about God and was approved by Session for our younger children's (Pre-K through Grade 2) Sunday school experience.
Christian educators, pastors, Sunday school teachers, and parents will find this an enriching training in teaching biblical stories to the next generation. It can be used in the classroom and at home. Please RSVP to Liz Maxey at email@example.com or 217-522-4415 to be a part of this wonderful weekend.
