Winnebago Sunday School Project | Winnebago, NE
The Winnebago Sunday School Project started after Pastor Roger Voskuil did the Christmas Children's message on keeping the lights on at Winnebago Reformed Church.
Winnebago Reformed Church is on the Winnebago Indian Reservation in Winnebago NE. about 70 miles from Sioux Center. Lowell Ten Clay is the Pastor. He and his wife Connie live on the Church property on the Reservation.
There usually is a group of 6-10 of us that go every 4th Sunday, we leave our church around 8:30 and usually return around 2:30. What we do is teach Sunday School to the Native children while Lowell is doing the worship with the adults.The classes are split into 2 groups ( 9 yrs.&up, 3yrs.to 8yrs.). The church has the teaching materials that we use. We average about 15-20 kids in the two classes.
If you like to teach but don't want to commit to every week this is for you. If you would like to do this as a family this is for you. If you love kids and just want to love on them this is for you. If you have ever thought of going on a mission trip but cannot be gone for a long time this is for you.( Every 4th Sunday that is all ) This would be a great oppritunity for a High School Sunday school class to go a week and teach as a service project. If you can't go on the Sunday we go we'll try next time and see if it works. We send out a group text the week before we go to see how many can go and if it doesn't work you just say no.
If you decide you would like to give Winnebago a try and want to be added to to the group text, or have any questions you can contact Kraig Hulstein @ 441-1629, or Ruth Rozeboom 441-2627
