Sunday School - Report

1. The Sunday School teachers were given a blessed opportunity to attend Teachers Training at India Sunday School Union Campus in Coonnor, on the 13th and 14th of July, 2019. The training was conducted by Dr. Ajith Prasadam, the General Secretary at ISSU. He laid emphasis on how we must ensure that our children get sensitized to 'GOD's Spirit, Habitual Presence' in their life. We were taught how to use the 'Lectio Divine' method of teaching

Teachers were sensitized that children love to learn but hate to study. New methods of teaching that will involve the children to 'Engage, Play and Imagine', were suggested.

The teachers were taken through the 9 stages of 'Child Development by Erik Homburger Erikson', by the able instructor Ms. Allam Jamier, which would enable the teachers to customize the learning as per the age group they all teach.

They also had a focused detailed session dealing with issues faced by Young Adults.

The teachers also had the opportunity to attend the Sunday Morning Service at ISSU Chapel and have fellowship with the congregation. They have come back motivated and responsible about the task entrusted to each one of us to lead these children in His teachings and mercies.

Thanks to our Presbyter Rev. Dr. Dexter Maben and the Pastorate Committee for their encouragement and continuous support. Thank you teachers, who made it possible, their families for supporting them, the teachers and the congregation members who took care of the Sunday School in our absence.

2. The Pep-talks we started has been continuously inspiring our young adults. Thanks to Mr. Asir Richardson, Mr. Joshi Mark, Mr. Sailesh Watsa and Maj. Valentina Christy (Retd) for sharing their walk with Christ in their careers.

3. 14 of our children participated in the Memory Verse Contest organized by the CSI-KCD Civil Area Council. Results are eagerly awaited

4. Children have participated in the State Bible Exam on July 28th

5. A Quiz and Singing Talent Hunt was conducted for our children in our church on June 30th and 28th July, to start showcasing the talents of our children for the greater glory of God.

Thanks and warm regards

Sunday School Superintendent

Inter-Church Women's Fellowship Service

The Inter-church Women's Fellowship Service was organised in our church on Saturday, July 20, 2019, at 4 pm

Around 150 women from different churches and denominations participated in the Service.

Mrs. Mirium L S Sadhu on behalf of St. Andrew's Family, welcomed the members and dignitaries, followed by the opening prayer by our Presbyter, Rev. Dr. Dexter S. Maben

Mrs. Elsy Jaison introduced the Founder of Inter Church Women's Fellowship, Rev. Navamani Eliya Peter, Bishop-amma of Methodist Church, followed by Praise and Worship led by St. Andrew's Church Women's Fellowship

The Theme for the Service was "FAR ABOVE RUBIES"

The Women's Fellowship Choreography Team performed on the song 'Far Above Rubies', and sang a Special Song, 'Nanna Nadesuvava Neene'

The message on this occasion was shared by our Bishop-amma, Prof. Esther Prasanna Kumar Samuel, President of CSI-KCD Women's Fellowship. She spoke on the Topic "Women as Peace Keepers". She also mentioned that in the Bible, women with their wisdom, have changed many situations and have brought peace instead of war and destruction.

Closing Prayer and Benediction was offered by Bishop-amma, Rev. Navamani Eliya Peter.

All the members had a fruitful time of fellowship.
