On Sunday (August Fourth) the Ebenezer congregation held the grand re-opening of our Sunday School program. Several changes were implemented: a new time (morning as opposed to afternoon), more time (two hours as opposed to one), and structure (an opening assembly, an hour of class time, a closing assembly). To commemorate this new phase in the history of our church, we had a special breakfast before Sunday School began.

Personally, I was fearful that the morning hour would make for a lower attendance. In fact, the opposite occurred. Here are some pictures from the event.

Breakfast!

Part of our new Sunday School program involves giving some of our men the opportunity to bring a short message during the opening assembly. Here Alex talks about the importance of bringing our children up in the Word.
