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.

Sunday School – Mar. 19th

SUNDAY SCHOOL – 10:30 am

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

This week classes will be held in the Heart Classroom for our younger students (ages 4 to 7) with Kristen and for older students (ages 8 to 12) will meet in the Treasure Classroom with Pam. They will be teaching the story of the Samaritan Woman at the Well.

We will be working on the “Family Prayer Sticks” in Class. Each family will receive a set of prayer sticks to take home and use during Lent and decide what they need to pray for using the sticks to facilitate Family Worship.

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.
