We offer to you this week's Virtual Church School ADULT Lesson, "Ask For It" with Instructor, Dr. Carmichael D. Crutchfield, CME Department of Christian Education & Formation General Secretary. We also welcome Rev. Dr. Willa Ross, C.M.E. Department of Christian Education & Formation Special Projects, who offers this week's prayer. Additionally, we share this week's Virtual Church School PRIMARY Lesson, "Believe and Know" which includes the bible story, music, activities, and FUN!

These videos include music, scripture, lecture, challenge, and application. They may be utilized in concert with your existing Church School or in substitution given the personal distancing parameters we are experiencing. For example, the video might be viewed by members in your congregations with an audio or video conference call held during the regular Church School period to offer facilitated discussion and review. There are CME Certified Christian Educators across the Episcopal Districts ready to offer assistance and creative solutions in concert with what we have done and are doing. Even during this crisis, we must be concerned about the spiritual needs of our congregations (at all generational levels) in addition to their physical and health needs. We welcome your feedback as we seek to expand the resources from the Department of Christian Education & Formation. Join us each Wednesday at Noon (CST) for the CME Connectional Virtual Bible Study sponsored by the Department. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to those who have been affected by this unprecedented event affecting the world today. We especially appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities and government entities around the country who are working tirelessly to contain COVID-19. Feel free to forward this email to anyone in your Church Education circle. They may subscribe directly to this announcement by sending an email to email@example.com .
