Sunday School Songs

NEW!  1/3/21: “Luke 2:11”

Hello Again!

This is a little treasure I found searching for new material this year. More to come about the artist who wrote this. I recorded it at “learn it” speed. It’s a little echo song which I’d love to sing with the band next year. 🙂 The composer of this song has 26 songs – one for each letter of the alphabet which includes the verse in the song!

Merry Christmas all! Shelly

11/29/20: “Light a Candle”

Hi friends! Here is an Advent song as we enter the Advent season. I hope you enjoy. Miss you, Shelly

11/23/20: “Give Light” 

Greetings! Here’s a song I hope to sing with all of you in person one day. The verses are:

  • Give light and people will find a way
  • Seek peace…
  • Stand together…
  • Give hope…
  • Give love…
  • People will find a way I do believe

Thanks,
Shelly

10/11/20: “Praises to the Father”

For this recording, you may want to grab a couple of things from around the house so you can play along! Happy Singing! Shelly

1.  A drum! Wait, no drums at home? No problem. Any kind of plastic container will work.
2. Something to shake! I used a container of toothpicks in this video. Vitamins also work well. Just make sure the container is closed before you
begin.

10/25/20: “Go in Peace” 

This is a recording of an old favorite called “Go In Peace.” There is a guest appearance at the end of the video! I hope you’re all staying healthy and I look forward to a time when we can make music in person! (Photo used with permission)
Miss you,
Shelly

9/28/20: “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” 
Click on the globe to listen to the song. This is one of my favorites to sing along! I had the kids in Godly Play draw pictures of the song several years ago. They are really sweet. Shelly

Sunday School in a Box

Sunday School in a box is off to a great start! Watch your mailbox for a Sunday School envelope with materials for each month’s Sunday School activities. Spend time working on this with your kids, and enjoy! If you have any suggestions, please feel free to email Sarah Black.

Youth Group

We had a great night at Leslie and Joel VanderVeen’s for Youth Group in October. We socially distanced outdoors, wore our masks, roasted hot dogs, had chips and then had our Smores. Everyone shared stories about school life in the Fall of 2020! It was fascinating!!!! I hope we can do this safely again and with other ages!

Wishing all of you a beautiful fall and a quick return to being together!!!
