Sunday School Swap 2017

Sunday, November 19th

On Sunday, November 19th, our students will have the opportunity to sit in on adult Sunday School classes. Students will be split up into adult classes with 3 or 4 students per class. (No student will be alone!) There will be a time for students and adults to get to know each other. The adults will do their normal lesson and students can participate if they choose.

The main goal of the day is for our students and adults to get to know each other. Studies (and experience) have shown that knowing more adults in the church leads to a more positive church experience for our students…and makes them more likely to stay plugged into a faith community during their teenage years and beyond.

Please encourage your student to attend and PLEASE have them to church by 9:40 on Sunday, November 19th!

This will help us get them to a Sunday School class on time.
We don’t want to be a disruption to the class.

Thanksgiving Baskets 2017

Each year, our church collects food to give out to families in need at Thanksgiving. This year, we’re supporting 20 families. We need help sorting and packaging all the donations so we can hand them out!

10 students are needed to help fill Thanksgiving Baskets at the church on Thursday, November 17th @ 5:30 p.m.

If you are available to help, there is a sign up sheet in the youth room!

Awana Update for Oct 26

Great Job with Service Night – it was impressive to hear all the ways the kids served and to see all the cute outfits!

One of the service projects that the kids worked on last Saturday at church was Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.  We will have boxes and brochures for this project on Sunday if you would like to pack a shoebox as a family!

This Week’s THEME:  Costume Night – No masks or scary costumes; and wear your tennis shoes!

Mark your calendars for Parent’s Night Out on Friday, December 8!  This will be a great date night or you can maybe do a little Christmas shopping without the little ones! [ Share the PNO Link ]

If you miss a week, parents can sign off the next section to catch up.  Reply to this email or ask the teachers on Sunday if you have any questions! 

Blessings,
Ellie
