Sunday School – April 2nd

SUPER AWESOME CHAPEL TODAY!

Don’t forget Pastor Salying’s Super Awesome Fun Chapel with Surprisingly Serious Content is being held today at 9:45 AM in Cowans Hall.

The Chapel theme this month is “Holy Week”. Following chapel, there will be “Children’s Refreshment Hour” beginning at 10:15 AM.

SUNDAY SCHOOL – 10:30 am

Sunday School is held in the Smith Education Building at 10:30 am.

Children of all ages will meet in the Heart Classroom to create Art Projects for use on Palm Sunday and Easter Morning. We’ll also be assembling Easter Blessing Basket items.

Students will also rehearse their presentation for the Great Easter Vigil to be held on April 15 at 6:00 P.M. around the Fire on the Plaza. Students involved with the Palm Sunday Passion Reading will rehearse following the Worship Service in the Church this Sunday.

REMINDER: Spend time with your family in prayer during this season of Lent by using the prayer sticks offered. If you were not here when they were handed out, alert one of the teachers on hand to see if there are some available,. If not, take some Popsicle sticks and color them using the scheme listed below.

The following is the Prayer Stick Code: Red is for Adoration of the Lord ( praising God), Blue is for Petition (asking god for our own needs), Green is for Intercession (asking God for the needs of others) and Purple is for Thanksgiving (thanking God for our Blessings).

A family could choose to use two or three sticks each evening when gathered together. As each family has its own dynamic so there are many ways to use these sticks to create intentional time for prayer.

CHILDCARE

Childcare for infants and children up to 4 years old are available during mid morning service with Tina in the Nursery, also located in the Smith Educational Building.

For campus locations, please see Directions and Campus Map.
