Sunday Mornings for Parents and Kids
Beginning today, we are offering a class titled “Grace Based Parenting.” This video series based on a book by Dr. Tim Kimmel will run from 8:30am - 9:15am every Sunday morning for 10 weeks. A workbook to accompany this course will be available for $10 each. Please contact Sue White at 432-9898 or email@example.com for more information.
This class runs concurrently with the children’s class being offered by Pastor Dallas. Young Children and Worship (also known as Godly Play) is a Montessori-based worship program. It follows the basic order of a worship service, and utilizes wooden figures to tell the Bible stories. Time is then given for children to respond, first through “wondering” questions about what they’ve heard, and then through an unguided art response in which they select their own materials from those offered. This class is for children from Pre-K through Grade 5. For questions please contact Pastor Dallas at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are gearing up for our 2018 VBS by gathering our volunteers together and getting them prepped for this year’s theme. Our presentation of the VBS opportunities will be after worship service on Sunday, April 29th, in the Youth Room. If you’ve volunteered before, and you know what you’d like to do this year, please attend as some of our needs have changed this year. If you don’t know what you’d like to do, but are interested in helping out we will go over the responsibilities of each position and you can decide after the presentation.
Grab a cup of coffee, meet us upstairs, and see what it’s all about!
The PNC is meeting on a weekly basis. The dynamics of our group are full of joy and openness to God’s guidance, thanks for your prayers. Please continue to pray for our spiritual protection as well as wisdom as we move forward in this process.
