Rally Day, September 2009
A new school year of Sunday School began on Sept. 13, taking the older and younger children and combining them into one classroom for a similar lesson. Ruth Dufresne taught the first class and there was a good relationship between the teens and their younger classmates.
Ruth led the first Sunday School class in the story of Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, who was sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. He later became a viceroy for the Pharaoh and he became best known for his coat of many colors. Katie Connelly told the story in class and the children then colored what they thought Joseph’s coat looked like.

Following the first day of Sunday School, there was the annual church picnic. The early morning was foggy with a light rain, but by the time the 10 o’clock service ended, the skies were clear and sunny and the picnic was a big success — outside! This year’s picnic included a Moon Bounce and Giant Pick-Up Sticks — both of which were very popular.
