This week classes will be held together in the Heart classroom located in the Smith Educational Building.

All students (ages 5 to 12) will explore the Symbols and Meaning of Halloween (All Hallows Eve), All Saints Day, All Souls Day, and Day of the Dead.

We will hold a rehearsal of the children’s All Saints presentations that will be shared duirng worship service on November 5th.

We will end our study time with an All Saints Party and invite all the kids to participate in playing games and creating treats. The (skeleton) key to learning…is having fun! No bones about it – come join us for a fun-filled morning!

CHILDCARE

Childcare for infants and children up to 4 years old are available during the 10:30 am–mid morning service with Tina in the Nursery, also located in the Smith Educational Building.

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 parents(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. Teachers will be available to offer assistance to parents and children with registration, questions or any special needs – just introduce yourself and they’ll take it from there. Thanks so much and we look forward to meeting you!
