Sunday Graceland: Freedom!

Last Sunday we began another unit in Exodus on Moses leading the Israelites to freedom. Thank you to the following teachers who will be with your kids throughout the month of October: Jody and Dan McArdle-kindergarten, Megan Nowak- 1st grade, Scott Yokiel- 2nd grade, Gail Baumgart-3rd grade, Amy and Mike Mitchell 4th grade, Jodie and Matt Greer 5th grade. Each lab will be filled with fun and interactive lessons making this story come alive for your children.

Check in System: As you probably know by now we have a new check in system on both Sunday morning and Wednesday evenings.  All families will need to check in on the IPADs at either west or east entrances before heading right to Sunday school in the gym area. Parents, save the little check out slip because you’ll to show that to teachers and leaders when you pick up your child after class.

Offering: Your kids received a cute reusable offering envelope this month in Sunday School. Please encourage them to use this tithing envelope each week when they come to church.  Discuss as a family how much to put in the offering envelope ( 5o cents-$1) Kids will have the opportunity to pass the basket during our celebration time and to learn what tithing means.

Birthday Wagon: This year I’ll be sending birthday cards to your home for your child to celebrate their big day! We’ll celebrate in church on Sunday or Wednesday by singing to them and giving them a small gift from the birthday cart! If you have registered your child i  have their birthday to send them a special note on the week of their big day!

Each week in our Wednesday evening class we focus on a word of character to help us follow in Christ’s footsteps. Throughout the month of October our word is Contentment: Deciding to be okay with what you have. We’re reading  about Paul from the new testament and are learning from his example to being content even when life brings difficult things! We always have a memory verse we work on all month as well. This month our memory verse is: “Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against wanting to have more and more things. Life is not made up of how much a person has.” Luke 12:15. Thank you to our awesome leaders who have committed to walking with your kids in their learning all year: k/1-Shana Shurson and Katie Page, 2/3-Jonathan Robinson and Dawn Smiley and 4/5-Dave Carlson and Tracy Bullock.

4th Grade Milestone Continues on Wed. Oct. 24th:

Calling all 4th graders and parents!
