NOTES FROM OUR CHILDREN’S DIRECTOR

I would like to invite all children to Sunday School each Sunday at 10:00 am. We are having a lot of fun talking and learning about God’s family.  Parents, I encourage you to PLEASE let your children attend Sunday School.  This is so important for them to develop in their spiritual life. We also invite ALL children to our Wednesday night activities beginning at 5:30 pm. we start with snack supper, we go to the choir room, where we are practicing for an amazing Christmas Program, entitled: “Carol and the Bells”.

Mr. John Sweat our choir director and he is working so hard to bring a lot of excitement and fun to choir and the Christmas Program has it all. after choir we have games, craft and Bible time.  Our volunteers work very hard to make each Wednesday a fun and exciting time for your child.

Parents, we are trying so hard to build the Children’s Department up. WE NEED your input. PLEASE HELP US!  Any suggestions on what we are doing wrong or how to improve our department Please let Rev. Anthony or Pam Creech know.  We want to make the Children’s Department a place where you want to bring your children.  My prayers and love are for each child and their families.

Looking ahead to October 20th from 12:00 to 3:00 pm we will be having our community-wide FALL FESTIVAL and we need LOTS of volunteers.

We are blessed each year with around 1,000 people to come to our church.  What a blessing and what a wonderful way to give back to the community. However, it takes a lot of planning, work and donations.  If you would be willing to donate 2 liter cokes, sprite, diet coke, bottle water, and/or cupcakes for our CAKE WALK and we also need candy, please bring these items to the Children’s Department and place at the bottom of the stairs.  If you can give one hour to running a booth please call Pam at 788-5941.  Thank you for being such a caring, loving, praying church and for always supporting the children.
