Worship. Serve. Grow.

What’s Happening in Children’s Ministries (week of Jun 18, 2017)

Can you smell the popcorn?  Do you hear the soda can opening?

Tomorrow we continue our Super Summer S(f)undays with freshly popped popcorn and soda/juice boxes!  Our Chapel Lesson is the lesson of Noah and Ark (with an animal hunt) and the Playground Parable is Exile and Return.  Note:  If it rains we will do the playground parable and popcorn in the Parish Hall.  It might be helpful to bring an old sheet or towel for your child to sit on if we do end up outside on the playground.  Regardless, bring Dad to church tomorrow and then bring him to the playground (or Parish Hall) for popcorn and a soda!  Please remember that we ask all children to listen to the Parable on Playground…it is very distracting to have some children running around and some trying to listen to a story.  So, if your child is on the playground during the parable they will be asked to come over and listen…it is only about 5-10 minutes.  Thank you!  Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow!
