God and Family being offered at St. Bethlehem in Clarksville, TN starting on 9/7/16

If anyone in Clarksville, TN has a son or daughter in 4th-5th grade and would like for them to take God and Family (a non denominational look at how having God in our lives creates a healthy family) over 4-6 weeks on Wednesday nights please let me know. I'm going to be starting this class at St. Bethlehem United Methodist Church on Wednesday nights at 6:30 starting September 7th. It is free to attend.

Children will read about different families in the Bible, which can teach them about God’s plan for strengthening families. To remember these lessons, children will compare families and “pizza.” The six steps for making pizza will give students a concrete, “hands-on” model on which to build their understanding of God’s love for their families. They will make a pizza as they study how families can grow together in God’s love, and they will choose “family projects” to be done with their family at home.
