Special start to Sunday school year for Henrytown kids


Mon, Oct 5th, 2015
Posted in Canton Education

A new year of Sunday school means a new way of doing things for the children of Henrytown. It’s the first time classes are being held since the ELCA congregation lost its church building to fire in April. However, two nearby Lutheran churches are helping make the transition easier. Over the summer, Vacation Bible School (VBS) students at Fountain Lutheran Church and Root Prairie Lutheran Church collected school supplies for Henrytown’s Sunday School. In addition to pencils, paper, crayons, markers, glue and scissors, the two Fountain area congregations also raised money for other Sunday school needs. The donations were personally delivered during Henrytown’s “Rally Sunday” on Sept. 20. Rachel Glende, representing Root Prairie, and Jill Himli, along with her 5-year-old son, Cyrus, members of Fountain Lutheran, visited with Henrytown students and their teachers. Glende and Himli explained that each year their VBS students choose a mission project and this year it was the Sunday school at Henrytown. The gifts are greatly appreciated by the Canton area children, who expressed their thanks to the students and families at Fountain Lutheran and Root Prairie Lutheran. This year, Henrytown is holding Sunday school at Assumption Hall in Canton. All children are welcome to attend the weekly classes, which start at 9:15 a.m., followed by worship services at Assumption Catholic Church at 10:30 a.m. Building plans are underway for the new Henrytown Lutheran Church.
