Adult Sunday School Series. Revelation
Pastor Bill will teach the adult Sunday school for the rest of July and give Mignon a well-deserved break. I thought I would go with something simple. Like Revelation. Or sometimes known as the Apocalypse of John. My goal is to de-mystify the book and discuss it in an interesting way. The series will be presented during the Sunday School hour, beginning July 8. I think it will work out to be about four lessons. Everyone is invited. There is no book, other than your Bible.
“Safe Gatherings” is the Conference’s new training and background checking for those who work with children, youth and vulnerable adults. So, those who teach Sunday school, VBS, visit shut-ins, work with children/youth need to have this training. It comes in three parts. The first step is to register at safegatherings.com. Registering will initiate the background checks and references requirement. There is a fee which of the conference will pay part and the church will reimburse you for any excess. The second step is a relatively painless computer training program we do individually at our own pace. The safe gatherings webpage will lead you into this training. The third step is an interactive session you can either do in person or at a webinar. Go to https://riotexas.org/safe for times and places. We might just schedule a training at one of our close churches and go as a group. “Safe Gatherings” will be required beginning right after Annual Conference (July 1), but it sure makes a bunch of sense to just go ahead and get it done now.
