Sunday School Service
By LJ Harry

The Souls Harbor Children's Choir from Belleview, Florida started us off.  And how cute they were.  They sang.  They ministered with dowel rods.  They worshipped God.  And that got God's attention.

It was then time to show honor to whom honor is due.  The Sunday School Division announced the Sunday School Teacher of the Year.  Out of over thousands of teachers, Sister Diane Haight from Michigan was awarded the National Sunday School Teacher of the Year.  You can learn more about this award and nominate a teacher by visiting the Sunday School Division's website.

Robbie Knox, Sunday School Secretary, memorialized the late Rick Lumpkins from Arkansas who passed away this year.  Lumpkins gave so much of himself to reaching children that he was awarded the honorary District Director of the Year.  His love and burden will be greatly missed.

Knox announced the record breaking offering of $1,357,877.34, an increase of 4.2%.  Glory to God!

Out of over 50 district directors, several were awarded for their outstanding service during 2006.  These directors are:

Scott Graham presented the Save Our Children need for 2007: Kids' Power Up.  It's a radio show that the Sunday School Division is promoting to reach children over radio waves.

Tom Foster opened up the Word of God to minister to the children, children's ministry workers, and all others who came to hear from God.  Foster preached "Where Does the Sky Begin?"   Foster appealed for people to approach their classes and services with passion. 

On the way to their classes back home, they made a stop by the conference altar.  Their stop by the altar proved to be a place where God fueled our children and our children's teachers with passion.
