Thank You to our Christian Educators

By Karla Schettenhelm, Children's Ministry

We are so thankful to all of those who serve in the education ministries at Christ Our Savior.

Thank You

This year ended differently than any other year. We did not get to finish our studies and continue relationship building in class. This was a disappointment to those who attend class as well as those who teach, lead, and guide. We know the abrupt end to the school year did not give time for closing out the year and showing our appreciation to those who have led us.

Even though the end of our school year ended up being in March, we still want to take the opportunity to thank our education staff at the official end of the school year. We gratefully express our appreciation to our teachers, assistants, support staff and their families who served us faithfully this year!

The following people made it possible for the babies, children, youth, and adults, young and old, at Christ Our Savior to learn about Jesus and help us grow in our faith:
