My first experience with Sunday School was at my home church, Bethany United Methodist Church in Lebanon, PA. I remember the wonderful storytelling of Miss Demmy and Ethel Miller in my early years, and the beauty and patience of Joan Koons in my later elementary years.
My mother, Ruth Edris, taught briefly when I was in junior high. By that age, our class met in the sanctuary along with the adult classes. Each class staked out a nook of that large room. We had the choir loft from which we had a good view of all that was taking place.
Then Eleanor Krause taught the senior high class and prepared us for life in the big world of post-graduation.
After leaving Lebanon and getting married, I taught Sunday School classes or otherwise had opportunities to develop my teaching skills in the following churches:
Oregonia (OH) United Methodist Church
Cheney (near Lincoln, NE) UMC
Tremont (PA) St. John's UMC
Barry Church in Weisample (PA)
Blue Springs (NE) UMC
Salem UMC in Manheim (PA)
Royersford (PA) UMC
Lancaster (PA) Community UMC
Bensalem (PA) UMCThe first draft of this Bible Reading Guide was completed at the Bensalem Church, probably in 1994-95, for the Adult I Class. Class members on the roll at that time were: Bill Eckman Dolores Eckman Eric Castelli Sandy Castelli Lil Ivins Kathy Oettinger Ben Magnani Vivian Magnani Doris Vansant Sarah Lorenzo Tom Kurtiz Anne Drybala Marge Back Carol McQuire Cindy Clark Lisa Owens Al Piccolo Jack Wilkins Gen Wright Jimmy Mills Gen Mills Liz Coulter Debbie Ross Doris Sloan(If I missed anybody, please let me know!)Thank you all for the good memories I have of that year.
To all of my teachers, classmates, and students, I just want to say a great big "thank you". You have enriched my life so much!
