VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS) – 9:30 AM
Vacation Bible School this Sunday starts at 9:30 AM in the Smith Educational Building for children ages 4-12 and will conclude when the children are brought into church for Communion during the 10:30 Worship service.
The focus of Sunday’s lesson will be “Queen Esther”. We’ll be enjoying stories, arts and crafts, games and snack creation. This week the children will get WET. Please plan to dress with this in mind. Children should also wear comfortable clothes and closed-toed shoes so they can play the games easily.
For our location, please see Directions and Campus Map.
SUNDAY SCHOOL – 10:30 am
If you cannot make it to VBS, then please join us for Sunday School at 10:30 AM in the Smith Education Building for a continuation of the morning’s activities.
Childcare is also available with Tina at this time (Smith Education Building – Nursery) for children up to four (4) years of age.
NEW STUDENTS – FIRST VISIT
Hello Parents and Guardians – if this is your student’s first time with us, please show up 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. Thanks so much and we look forward to meeting you!

PARENT PLANNING MEETING – AFTER SUNDAY SERVICE
We are holding a parent planning meeting to discuss upcoming lessons after worship service this Sunday.
Lesson planning will center around the commemoration of The 15th Anniversary of 9/11 which will occur on September 11, 2016. This service is a scheduled Family Eucharist and the children will be worshiping with their parents in the Church.
We’ve prepared a five part lesson for August 21st that will hopefully give our children the knowledge and tools to help them honor this day. We would like to have your opinions and concerns so you may help us to create the lesson.
Please join us in the Disciple’s Room – see Directions & Campus Map for the exact location.
