Christian Education



Hello, my name is Courtney.  Along with now teaching Sunday School, I am a student teacher for the preschool program at my school. I have a passion for education. I am very eager to start working with the Sunday School program! I can't wait to make memories and watch the children and our church family grow.  

Hello, my name is Brittany. I am 28 years old. I am currently a preschool teacher at a daycare in Belvidere. I have worked with children for over 10 years.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy watching movies and reading. I am honored to have this opportunity to become the Sunday school teacher.  I look forward to getting to know you and your children.

Feed My Starving Children

 On Saturday, October 14 we had the opportunity to go to Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1045 Belvidere Road, Belvidere and work with "Feed My Starving Children". This project was for our confirmation students as well as anyone else from the church. Immanuel Lutheran Church was also asking that each participant bring a non-perishable item for the local food bank.
