A Look Back

What a great start we had in September!

Thanks to the Vitality Grant, funds from FPCH and a lot of volunteers, much needed storage space was added to both the Multi Purpose Room and the Youth Lounge. A contractor was hired for the framing but that was it – every night a new volunteer would help with another piece of the project. It really did take a village! A huge thank you to everyone!!!

 

Sunday School

On September 10th the children each made a Worship bag to call their own. The bags come with colored pencils and pipe cleaners. For children that stay in Worship (2nd grade & up) a drawing book has also been added. Later in October, Hymn markers will be added to their bags. We encourage families to add additional items to their child’s bag that will make their bag as individual and special as their child. What might work for one child does not work for all children. It is our hope that the worship bags will help each child become an active participant – fully present in worship. A pencil sharpener has been placed in the Narthex to help keep the colored pencils in your child’s bag sharpened.

 

 

Kids Club

Kids Club started on September 20th with 51 children and youth registered! The children will be learning about Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob during the first quarter. Each week the children will have conversation centered around the unwrapping of Abraham’s story. They will spend time considering what it means to trust in the Lord, the power of their words, hospitality, and doing what is right. At the end of October the children will begin working on the Christmas Pageant.

Kids Club is a wonderful way to make a difference in the lives of children. If you would like to explore ways that you can be part of the program email Mary Maleski. There are so many ways…
