Buddy Sunday on November 4

Nov 4 is Buddy Sunday; a time when older and younger children get to meet each other and begin to build recognition and  community through prayer and sharing a Bible story together. Our goal for this day is for older children to act as mentors to the younger children and for younger children to meet older children to include in their faith community.

The Moon Group (3 year olds) will meet with the Ephesians  group (2nd graders) during Sunday School.

We invite  the children to pray for each other during the week. Children will bring home a Buddy Book which names their new church friend.

Children’s Sunday School Kick-Off

Sunday, August 19, will begin another 10-month season of Sunday School, a community of belonging for our children.  Prior to the 19th, you will receive an e-mail with details about your child(ren)’s leader, small group & room assignment, etc.   Leaders are already praying for your child(ren)!   We encourage you to escort your child(ren) to their rooms and greet their leaders.

Once your child(ren) are settled, parents are invited to Courtenay Hall where a breakfast will be hosted by Pastor Josh Rodriguez.   A great time for fellowship, food, and some spiritual uplifting through Josh’s message.

Special Event for Preschoolers- August 23, 2017

Kick-Off for Children’s Sunday School Groups is August 20

Welcome!   We hope the summer offered lots of opportunity to relax, travel, and renew.  We’re ready to begin our communities of belonging with our children each Sunday morning.  Groups age 3 through 6th grade study the Bible together and grow as disciples as they pray, serve, play, and care for each other.   Babies and toddlers have a fun time in our loving Nursery playing and hearing a Bible story, too.

The Sunday School hour for children is 9:45-10:45 A.M.   Families will receive an e-mail with their child’s group and room assignment prior to August 20.   We ask that parents escort their children to their group on this Kick-Off day and offer a hello/thanks to the great group of leaders who will be journeying with your child for the next 10 months.

Starting at 10:00 A.M. we are hosting a breakfast for parents in Courtenay Hall.   You’ll have time to visit with friends, make new friends, and enjoy Kim’s great cooking.

Relationships matter!  

Faith is caught more than it is taught.
