CHILDREN’S NEWS by Kellie Gordon
MANY THANKS to all of you who helped make the Rally Day Kick Off a success! We had fabulous weather, wonderful attendance, and a terrific start to our Sunday School season. Thank you for coming, and for making it a memorable day!
We’re gearing up for that busy time of year during the fall, as we celebrate our third graders, begin other fall programming, and prepare for Advent. So this month’s article will be largely dedicated to those reminders (and pleas for help)
Upcoming dates to remember:
October 4th – JAMers (4th and 5th graders) Meeting to plan year’s activities. Big Al’s Bowling at 1:00 p.m.
October 11th – Third Grade Bible Distribution during Worship Service – all third graders will be presented with a Bible, as well as any new members who’ve not received one, or not taken Bible 101 or the equivalent.
October 18th and 25th – Bible 101 during Education Hour. Bible 101 is for all recipients of Bibles the week before. It takes place in the South Sunday School wing on the 3rd floor.
October 25th – Children’s Christmas Program script is available.
November 8th – First JAMer Outing
November 29th – Advent Festival
December 11th – Parents’ Night Out 5-9 p.m. at TLC Kids ages 3 and up welcome.
December 13th – Children’s Christmas Program and Gingerbread House making event.
Advent Festival – November 29th During Education Hour
The Advent Festival is coming! If you have a fun Christmas or Advent activity or craft you’d like to lead, please talk to me! I’d love to hear your ideas! The Advent Festival is a fun, church-wide, multi-generational tradition which helps us prepare for the Advent season. You can make an Advent wreath, frost a cookie, decorate an ornament and have a great time doing it all! Don’t miss this year’s Advent Festival.
Parents Night Out
5:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Friday, December 11
We’ll have our fifth annual Parents’ Night Out on Friday, December 11th for all children ages 3 and up. Dinner will be served, games will be played, and we will try out best to rehearse the Christmas Pageant as well. If you’d like to help out with this fun event, helpers will be most welcome (and desperately needed! Last year we had 18 children!) Talk to Kellie if you can help, and sign up soon at the Children’s Ministry board so we can know how many to expect. Thank you!
