MISSOURI COUPLE NAMED SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS OF THE YEAR

After 30 years, Jack and Sherry Herschend (HUR'-shund) say teaching Sunday School is still the highlight of their week. The Herschends, who teach fifth- and sixth-graders at First Presbyterian Church of Branson, Missouri, have been named Sunday School Teachers of the Year by Gospel Light publishers. Jack Herschend says their goals are to teach kids about Jesus, help them build each other up rather than tear each other down, and show them that Christianity can be fun. To that end, they take the kids on class adventures every five or six weeks like boating, barn swinging or exploring caves. Their class is so popular that some kids who go to other churches attend Sunday School with the Herschends. Their couple's prizes include a Hawaiian vacation.
