Sunday School – (3rd Sunday of Advent) Dec. 11th

SUNDAY SCHOOL – 10:30 AM

We will gather in the Narthex (just inside the big red doors of the church) for a procession into the church followed by the lighting of the third Advent candle. Please arrive a few minutes early.

After the candle lighting, all classes will meet in the Love classroom in the Smith Education Building. The children will be finishing their ornaments for “The Greening of the Church” event following Sunday School’s annual Christmas Pageant on December 18th.

Childcare for infants and children up to 4 years of age is available with Tina in the Nursery, also located in the Smith Educational Building.

Parents: After service, we’ll remain in the church to do a block rehearsal for the Christmas pageant. While there are no lines to memorize this year, participants will receive guidance, positioning and direction on where to move. If you did not try on your costume last week please be sure to have it fitted at this time.

For campus locations, please see Directions and Campus Map.

NEW STUDENTS – FIRST VISIT

Hello Parents and Guardians – if this is your student’s first time with us, please arrive a few minutes early to register your child.

We follow safe church practices, so its important that we know who’s in attendance, have parent(s) or guardian(s) check children in-and-out, and provide us us with any important details including contact info in the event of an emergency. Teachers are happy to help 🙂

Education building doors are locked 10 minutes after church service begins for added security…so give yourself a little extra time this first day. Thanks so much and we look forward to meeting you!
