Well it’s hard to believe, but it’s time to start thinking about School again! Sunday School, I mean. This edition of the Flock contains a registration form (it’s also at www.fpchsnj.org). Please complete this form whether your child is an infant or a 12th grader. Our Rolls need to be updated and this information is vital for planning. We particularly need information about children who have not previously attended our Sunday School classes, as soon as possible. Our first day of Sunday School will be September 9, 2012. This will be a very special day for our church... Stay tuned for details. Registration form click here

Adult Christian Education for August
Sunday Mornings, 10:15-11:15
ALL SUMMER: ONE-WEEK COURSES!!!
All Summer classes held in Rooms 5-6, next to the Kitchen
Johnson City Mission Trip Presentation – Come hear about the ministry that went on during our adult mission trip to Johnson City, NY in a presentation by the group. The group will share details about the mission work, situation in Johnson City, culture and living, and of course, some funny stories no doubt! Pastor Andrew and the adult mission team that went will lead the presentation and slide show. August 5th.
The Presbyterian Seal – A Confession Faith – During this class, we will look at the symbols within the Presbyterian seal, and think about what they say about our faith in God. Linda Woodman will teach the class. August 12th.
The Poetry of the Old Testament – Pastor Doug will lead this class, which will explore some basic structures and devices used by the Hebrew poets of the Old Testament. Familiarity with the poetic devices used will hopefully unlock the richness and meaning of the Hebrew poetry in Psalms and Proverbs, as well as other books with more “hidden” poetry. August 19th.
Report from General Assembly – Our presbytery’s current moderator, our very own Jean Woodman will lead this report on what went on at the denomination’s General Assembly meeting in July. Meant to compliment her sermon from 8/12, this class will offer different material with a different focus. Bring your denominational fervor and your questions! August 26th.
